New Food Truck: Pico de Gap

August 16, 2011 | by —Jenn Gimbel | Food & Drink News

The Gap is cooking up more than just jeans this summer. In celebration of its 1969 fall denim collection, Gap has launched its first-ever gourmet taco truck in select cities around the country. Dubbed Pico de Gap, the inspiration for the truck came from the L.A. Gap creative team’s late night dinners at a local food truck. The vintage truck holds true to the 1969 collection’s throwback aesthete with a hand-paint job featuring a replica of a vintage Gap ad and neon sign from the 1970s. The custom-designed braised lamb, shrimp, carnita and spicy tofu tacos come courtesy of Top Chef alum and celebrity chef Marcel Vigneron. Keep your eyes peeled for this mobile fiesta that will be stopping by music events, nightlife hotspots, festivals, select Gap stores and more (through September 30)—or stop by one of their scheduled pit stops listed below.
