Today marks the official opening of the DUMBO food truck lot in Brooklyn. Up to four trucks will occupy the vacant lot, which operate as a food truck free-for-all from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekly, and may consider a 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. night hustle if neighbors are cool with it. Domo Taco, Hibachi Heaven and Fishing Shrimp will kick things off today, and Bian Dang will reportedly set up shop on Wednesday.
This is an efficient way for food trucks to avoid tickets and street gang-esque turf wars. Be sure to follow @dumbolot on Twitter for updates, and keep in mind that things will get serious out there once the weather remains warm on a consistent basis.
