A Preview of This Year's Food Truck Schedule, Effective April 1

Yesterday a lottery took place to determine the scheduling in prime locations. Here's a look at the results.

April 1st marks the start of a new year of food truck scheduling in Boston, and in order to dole out prime spaces, the city held a lottery. Roxy’s Grilled Cheese owner James DiSabatino sent us the new schedule, which you can check out ahead.

It’s important to note that this schedule isn’t for all food truck locations, but for prime spots only. This means in-demand spots that the city deems “Tier 1” (spaces like the ones in front of City Hall or the Boston Public Library, which tend to do tons of business) as well as brand-new ones (in the Financial District, in Chinatown). Other spaces, like ones by BU and Northeastern, have yet to be scheduled (and may feature trucks not present on the chart below).

In addition to providing the updated locales for local favorites like Staff Meal and Roxy’s, the schedule below yields a couple of additional gems: the once out-of-the-way Boston Speed Dog will now sling their massive, cider-braised dogs in front of the BPL and in Chinatown, and there’s also mention of a brand-new truck, Mei Mei, which promises modern Chinese street food fare like dumplings and homemade steamed buns stuffed with pork, cracklings, and apple hoisin sauce. Where you’ll be eating starting April 1st, below:
