Graffiato Food Truck Hits the Streets for One Day Only

Mike Isabella dishing up samples and offering food challenges

The good news: "Top Chef" alum Mike Isabella is rolling out a version of Graffiato on wheels.

The bad news: It's for one day only, on Wednesday, July 25.

Stop by to "Challenge Your Palate" (we know, we know, Italian small plates are just so difficult to enjoy) and have the chance to win prizes, from free lunch and signed cookbooks to iPods and Breville goodies. reports:

The twist, though, is that it doesn't really have a menu and it's pretty much not going to be a food truck at all.

Rather, it's a bit of a publicity stunt in which Isabella will be riding around in a glass-encased truck offering free samples of Graffiato's food and holding an ingredient-identifying contest at stops around the city.

Still, we'll take what we can get.

Check out the planned stops below:

  • 8 a.m. -- Dupont Circle, Q Street between 20th and Connecticut NW
  • 11 a.m. -- Union Station, corner of Mass Avenue and F Street NE
  • 1 p.m. -- Franklin Park, corner of 14th and K streets NW
  • 4:45 p.m. -- Farragut North, K Street between 17th and Connecticut NW
  • 6:30 p.m. -- National Mall, corner of Constitution Avenue and 10th Street NW
