The D.C. Council on Tuesday approved emergency legislation to address regulations for the city's food trucks, bringing a peaceful compromise to a three-year battle between brick-and-mortar restaurants and the popular mobile vendors.
The long-simmering battle between traditional brick-and-mortar restaurants and the insurgent food truck industry is expected to come to a head Friday during a regulatory hearing before a D.C. Council committee.
Instead of serving meals, the colorful food trucks that usually offer lobster rolls, piping-hot slices of pizza or spicy empanadas were closed on Monday — a demonstration of what the lunch hour could be like under new regulations proposed by city officials.
