Street Swank: The Four Seasons Has a Food Truck

And it's heading to Washington.

A Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts truck is headed to Washington, and no, it’s not giving out small, luxurious bath products. The five-star chain is jumping on the food truck trend to expand its brand and appeal to younger spenders, similar to the TGI Fridays “road tour” and the Nutella-mobile.

The East Coast tour runs from Boston down to Miami, with a stop in Washington October 13 through 18. (Baltimore gets its turn the week before, October 6 through 11.) Truck stops include various events or popular landmarks, where the Four Seasons culinary team will cook up city-specific menus. Washington’s will center around riffs on “American comforts” (see below), such as half-smoke corn dogs, kimchi grilled cheese, and tutti fruitti macaroons.

Props to anyone who shows up for lunch in a plush bathrobe and bedroom slippers.
