After a brief stint riding and frying in New York, the Colonel Sanders of the hipster sphere, Dante Gonzales, is off to L.A. to launch a food truck. Why didn’t he do it here? “I tried to open a truck in NY,” he tells L.A. Weekly, “but it’s not a very nurturing place to do it without a budget.” See what you’ve done, City Hall? Oh well, at least the scene in New York is better than in, say, Dallas, where hot food trucks are outright banned in the central business district (among a litany of other roadblocks).
