Get on the Bus and have a snack
Tired of the Cafe Rock, try this moveable feast...
Dining in an Old School Bus
Youâ€™re looking forward to turkey.
But in a few days, youâ€™ll be seeking out anything but that.
So we think a meatball sub out of a souped-up school bus-turned-restaurant sounds about right...
Introducing Le Truc, the cityâ€™s first bustaurant to serve fine dining-grade food inside a converted â€™89 Ford Ward school bus, opening for lunch on Monday in the Wells Fargo parking lot on Brannan.
If youâ€™re envisioning pizza Friday in a yellow school bus, youâ€™ll be advised that there are some major departures. First, the bus is no longer yellow. Instead, youâ€™ll find a sleek, gunmetal gray vehicle cloaked in chrome. Second, your foodâ€”from theÂ Tenderloin Beef Sandwich to Thai Red Curry Chiliâ€”is carefully crafted to avoid any school cafeteria flashbacks.
You mightâ€™ve caught these guys in soft-opening mode at Off the Grid, but now, when you step inside, youâ€™ll discover four extra inches of headroom and skylights, so when you take a seat at one of the copper tables squeezed in next to the restaurant-equipped kitchen (thereâ€™s enough seating for 12), you wonâ€™t feel cramped.
In a few weeks, theyâ€™ll start parking near a bar (hint: one serving a good selection of Belgian ales) and dishing out prix fixe dinners with courses as extravagant as sashimi or as hearty as chicken meatloaf.
