  1. Thanks for posting and supporting the food trucks. I'm a big fan of most of these trucks and can't wait to try the new ones. It will be good to see a cluster at Stuart Street and another pair in the financial district.

    And, I'm going to have to set a monthly Speed Dog limit now that I can walk to the truck or run into it on my daily errands. We should fill those stone benches in front of the library with hounds on his first day there.

      Yeah, I'm looking at the city hall/west end list and thinking it's a good thing I don't work right there any more.

    2. Brookline is piloting a few clusters of food trucks, too, but residents' objections will keep them out of Coolidge Corner: http://www.boston.com/yourtown/news/b...

        1. FYI, Staff Meal is already hanging out several days a week at the Trinity Place spot, and mostly doing tacos during the day. Had some great truck tacos the other day: crab stick with scallion cream cheese, wontons and apple butter; truck-made chorizo with lime crema, radish and lettuce; corned beef with pickled cabbage slaw and chips (on the taco). Hefty and tasty; probably should have stuck to two. $3.50 to $4 a pop, a good value.

          1. re: MC Slim JB

            I went to Staff Meal for the first time today. They're in the Chinatown Park. Pretty small line compared to Dewey Square with Clover, Momogoose and Bon Me (Clover & Bon Me must have had 40+ people). I got the the corned beef and the chorizo. As Slim says, they were hefty and tasty.

            1. re: mkfisher

              Lines can be very deceiving, at least in my experience. Bon Me's line can be 20+ people deep, and I'm still out of there in under 10 minutes easily. Tried Staff a week or two ago for the first time, and with a line of <10 people, it still took 25+ minutes from getting in line to getting my food(!).

              Food was good, but is that typical of Staff Meal?

              1. re: chevrelove

                I was in the Bon Me line today, and I can assure you I wasn't out of there in under 10 minutes. It was more like 25 minutes total.

                1. re: mkfisher

                  It has been a while since I worked in the city hall area but my experience was that Bon Me took waaaay toooo looong. I can forgive a "white person bon mi", and I can forgive the higher cost. I can't forgive the fact that I can go to chinatown where they're churning them out at a rate of 1 per second and it takes 2 mins per in that truck.

            2. re: MC Slim JB

              That whole part of the block on Stuart St has been closed off because they ripped the street up after the power outage ...

            3. Not sure how it all works, but would think that a Clover truck for the breakfast shift in the Financial district would do bang-up business - from me!

              1. re: Bob Dobalina

                Doesn't Clover set up shop in Dewey Square for breakfast? I see them there almost every morning on the way to my office. Dewey Square isn't more than a 5-8 minute walk from almost anywhere in the Financial District and in many cases is much closer.

                1. re: Gordough

                  I think you're right - I was commenting on the listed locations, which have designated breakfast spots that are for the most part unfilled (except for the Paris Creperie truck in Chinatown, which I would think is the less likely place to do good business at that time of day).

                  And rushing in to work, a 15 walk + the inevitable 5-10 minute wait with the Clover system is too long. :)
