Happy Monday! There might not be a more beautiful day all summer to wait outside for lunch from a food truck. We're pretty happy with the lineup of trucks right near our downtown office—Big Cheese, DC Empanadas, and Red Hook Lobster. We're also intrigued by the soft-shell-crab tacos coming out of Sabor'a Street. A full list of locations and a map after the jump.
