RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) Richmond, hitching onto an idea that’s taken off in larger cities, now has plenty of Food Trucks. Starting in April, area food trucks will amass together to create a diner’s delight: a Food Truck Court.

From the press release:

The Virginia Historical Society is hosting Richmond’s first Food Truck Court, a gathering of several mobile catering vendors, for two weeks in April. Participating food trucks will offer gourmet chef inspired food, specialty beverages, and desserts.

Patrons are invited to utilize the picnic tables and grassy courtyard located inside the VHS parking lot to enjoy their dining purchases.

Food will be sold from 6 to 9 p.m. on these nights. The VHS won’t be open during these hours, but do encourage people to come back for a visit of their many exhibits.

Participating food truck vendors include:

  • Boka Truck: Asian-Mexican-American fusion takos with French technique and seasonal menus
  • Sustenance Truck: Fresh, local, seasonal gourmet sandwiches, soups, and chef’s creations
  • Dressed & Pressed: Gourmet salads, truffled tater tots, gourmet paninis, and chef specialties
