Watershed Right On Target; Food Truck Mayhem In Dupont

NOMA—According to the Equinox twitter feed, Todd Gray's next venture Watershed is coming along right on schedule. The walls are closed in and painted, the patio has been leveled and the private rooms are wired with flat-screens, well ahead of the targeted April 22 opening. [Twitter]

FOOD TRUCKS—The Washington Examiner tells a tale of strife between food trucks and small business owners. Apparently a store owner in Dupont Circle attempted to sabotage the Sprinklesmobile yesterday during its cupcake-giveaway promo. The truck had parked next to Larry's Ice Cream, also a cupcake purveyor. Thanks to the store owner's heckling, Sprinkles packed it in early. See guys? This is why we can't have free things.

MENUWATCHJaleo is celebrating flamenco this week with a set of Andalusian specialties like fried white fish with aioli, chilled almond soup and an organic scrambled egg dish made with shrimp, spring garlic and cured ham. Prices range from $7 to $18, and all three DC-area locations of this Jose Andres restaurant will serve the specialities through March 13. [EaterWire]

KITCHEN NIGHTMARES—Every chef dreams of the day when someone yells on TV that his restaurant disgusts them. Now a DC chef may have that very opportunity. Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares is casting for a local restaurateur who's down on his luck. DCist points out that Ramsay himself is struggling these days and questions whether he's the best mentor. Still, if you're interested, you can fill out a 14-page application requesting intel on your eye color, ethnicity and drug abuse history. [DCist]
