NEWS— Tim Carman has updates on two popular food trucks. The good news: Basil Thyme's owner has decided to keep his truck on the streets now that the city passed regulations that work for him. Meanwhile the El Floridano truck is saying goodbye due to the owner's larger commitment of running Mothership restaurant. [WaPo]

NEW TRUCKS— Food Truck Fiesta reports that Spitfire Mediterranean has hit the streets in Fairfax. Meanwhile Dolci Gelati , a gelato supplier with a big wholesale presence and a store in Takoma Park, has launched its first food truck in the District serving gelato, sorbet, pastries, coffee, and even pet-friendly items. They've got a new business partner, Sierra Georgia, to help them with the venture. [FTF, EaterWire]
