Chef Jason Dady has a new idea that should be rolling in a few weeks. Literally.
Dady, who is behind the Lodge Restaurant of Castle Hills and Bin 555 among others, will soon be entering the mobile food craze.
He has bought the vehicle, which he has dubbed the DukTruck, and it “will be an extension of our overall brand,” he says. “We currently plan on serving barbecue two days a week and modern American ‘mobile food’ the rest of the days.”
You will be able to find the DukTruck at places such as Rackspace, BAMC, the Medical Center district and the Pearl Brewery. Dady is also looking at some spots along north Loop 1604 as well. A firmer schedule will be announced later.
Another of the city’s top chefs, Andrew Weissman, has announced his plans for a trailer food park, which should be ready after the beginning of 2011.
In other news, a new Alamo Drafthouse has opened. The third San Antonio location for the movie house chain with a great beer list and good food is 22806 U.S. 281.
“We’re extremely excited to have our third Alamo Drafthouse in San Antonio,” says franchise partner Brandon Arceneaux. Stone Oak “is such a thriving area and we can’t wait to be the community theater.”
