Ready for a celebrity chef's food truck fantasy?
On Wednesday, between 8 a.m. and 6:30 p.m., a Graffiato truck will cruise the nation's capital as Isabella tests out what a press release calls his “food truck fantasy.”
A collaboration with CityEats, the glass-encased truck will offer free samples from Graffiato’s menu, according to Eater, which describes Isabella's one-day mobile journey as "a bit of a publicity stunt."
Customers will also be able to test their gourmet knowledge with an ingredient-guessing, “Challenge Your Palate” contest and win prizes ranging from a free lunch at Graffiato to a signed copy of Isabella’s new cookbook “Crazy Good Italian” to iPods.
The truck’s locations will be as follows:
8 a.m.: Dupont Circle –- Q Street NW between 20th Street and Connecticut Avenue

1 p.m.: Franklin Park -– Corner of 14th and K streets NW
