Ever gotten a Dolcezza craving while kayaking the Potomac? Now theres a quick solution. Nauti Foods, the floating equivalent of a food truck, will begin anchoring north of Key Bridge on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday afternoons and evenings. On the menu: hot dogs, granola bars, ice cream, and more.

Co-owners Ari Fingeroth and Tammar Berger came up with the concept after spending years paddling on the river, often wishing theyd brought more snacks and supplies. Kayakers and paddle boarders will be able to pull up to the 24-foot pontoon boat, outfitted with coolers and a grill, to order a variety of beverages, snacks, and Hebrew National dogs. The duo have teamed up with a few local purveyors, including Dolcezza and Sticky Fingers, so you may find gelato pops and vegan baked goods on opening weekend. All to-go bags are outfitted with carabiners, so boaters can easily fasten their trash aboard or on life vests.

Larger vessels arent left out of the mix. Fingeroth says theyre still figuring out the best way to take orders, but big boats will be able to send in requests, which will be delivered by a paddle board outfitted with a cooler.

Though business hours are somewhat flexible, look for Nauti Foods between 3 and 8 on Friday and noon to 7 on Saturday and Sunday.
