The city of Costa Mesa is welcoming Orange County’s first permanent food truck park at The MET, a vertical creative campus consisting of three 12-story office towers and a three-story 24 Hour Fitness Sport facility. “We are looking to provide a daily diverse, and vibrant culinary experience for tenants and visitors with the ‘Food Truck Runway’ here at The MET,” says owner and manager, McCarthy Cook & Co.
They have hired Karen DiEugenio, of luxe lonchera Bacon Mania to curate the daily truck rotation as well as operate Verde Kitchen, the new on-site cafe lounge that will compliment the selection of food trucks on campus. DiEugenio looks to assure that there will be a variety of trucks from Orange County (as well as possibly hosting visiting trucks from LA and IE) along with organizing special events like farmers’/artisan markets, concerts, movies, and tap takeovers to create an exciting experience for tenants as well as visitors to the campus.    Event Website
