The Four Seasons is known for being one of the top hotel chains around the world, and its restaurants are never an exception to the rule. Anyone who has ever dined at a Four Seasons restaurant knows exactly what luxury dining is, with delicious food and an attentive wait staff. Following a successful first run in 2013, the Four Seasons is running a food truck along the East Coast this year. The 43-day adventure covers 1,037 miles, starting in Boston and working its way south to Miami. Although the FS Taste Truck Tour has already started (as of Sept. 15), you still have a chance to catch it before it stops running Nov. 11.
While most people think of a food truck as a place where those looking for an affordable meal get their dinner, the Four Seasons food truck serves the same types of luxury dining dishes you would find in its restaurants. In fact, the chefs at corresponding hotels and resorts of the Four Seasons near each food truck tour location are responsible for the menus. This means that at every stop along the nine-destination food truck tour, you can sample a different dish. The goal is that each dish will represent the flavors of the area. This means that if you want, you can even plan an entire vacation around the locations of the Four Seasons food truck. The menu highlights include lobster rolls in Boston, peach ice cream sandwiches with butter pecan in Atlanta, and Vampiros Steak Tacos in Palm Beach.
The Four Seasons food truck will take part in events along its route, so consider enjoying one of those as well, as they showcase everything that a luxury dining experience has to offer. When in Atlanta, the Four Seasons food truck will participate in the Food Truck Showdown with its delicious Savannah Crab Cake Sandwich, and while in Baltimore, you can expect chefs to participate in the Purple Friday events with their Pit Beef Tacos.
In addition to giving people the opportunity to try local variations of top-of-the-line cuisine, Four Seasons will also be donating a portion of its profits to various charities. Each of these will be local charities, so each individual area on the route will see immediate benefits from the food truck’s presence.
The Four Seasons food truck was in Boston from Sept. 15 to 20, Philadelphia from Sept. 22 to 27, and New York from Sept. 29 to October. It arrived in Baltimore on Oct. 6 and will stay until the 11. After that, the schedule takes the truck to Washington, D.C., from Oct. 13 to 18, Atlanta from the 20th to 25th, Orlando on the 27th and 28th, Palm Beach from Oct. 30 to Nov. 4, and finally to Miami from Nov. 6 through 11.
Although an inspired idea, the Four Seasons food truck is not the first of this type of mobile luxury dining experience. The 2013 FS Taste Tour traveled throughout New Mexico, Arizona, and California. The Four Seasons saw this as an opportunity to teach more people about the joys of dining in luxury and give chefs a chance to express their creativity.
