We already told you about Free Range Dining’s mobile restaurant aboard a ‘57 Greyhound bus named Diamond Lil, which launches April 10th. Well, as SFoodie notes, there’s another bustaurant on the way, this one a less mobile situation called Le Truc which will be parked on an as-yet-unselected piece of private land in the Mission, Castro, or South Park. The glossy, gunmetal gray school-bus is already outfitted with a Royal range and seating for twelve, and co-owner Hugh Schick, an experienced private chef, has enlisted the help of Camille Jackson (formerly of Osteria Stellina and the Carneros Inn) to help in the kitchen.
A tentative menu includes things like glazed duck breast with cherries and pomegranate, chicken meatloaf, and “mac truc,” which would be their take on macaroni and cheese. “We will dare to serve actual balanced meals,” says Schick, and he’ll be keeping prices low — between $4 and $11, not unlike similar low-overhead operations Mission Street Food and Spencer-on-the-Go.
