Italian Ice Alert: In case you missed it this morning on the ML Twitter Tracker... it's not the best day for it, but Italian ices are back at the Papa Perrone Truck (on 55th btw. Park+Mad).  And if he's carrying the same brand he did last year that means Uncle Louie G has returned to Midtown!

Treats Truck Up on 55th Again

The Treats Truck has been forced from her regular Thursday spot (on 38th and 5th), so you can find her up on 55th btw. Mad+Park next to the Papa Perrone Truck for the second time in the past two weeks. She’ll be there until 3pm, so if you work in the area, and want to see her back in this spot, I’d go out and buy some treats today!

Papa Perrone Returns Today: It's been a week since a fire broke out on the Papa Perrone truck... but we're hearing everything has been fixed, and the big papa himself (J.P.) has been cleared to return to work today.  Glad to have him back...

Another Truck Fire Leaves Papa Perrone Burned

Papa Perrone just can’t catch a break.  The popular Italian food truck (which parks on 55th btw. Mad+Park) has been having loads of oven problems over the past few months, and yesterday the Papa himself ended up getting burned.  From owner Jon Paul: “We had a fire on our truck and I got burned pretty good.  Went to relight the oven and there was gas still in the oven.  It came out like a fire ball and burnt my face.  The doctor gave me some cream, and I am gonna follow up with a burn specialist just to be safe.  Looks like it will be okay.  Hope to be back by Tuesday, but I am trying to get somebody to work the truck tomorrow.”  This comes just two weeks after a fire broke out on the Schnitzel Truck, but luckily nobody was hurt in that one.  Glad to hear Papa Perrone is ok, and hope to see him back on the street soon.  Follow his twitter account or the ML Twitter Tracker for more updates.

Papa Perrone Truck is Back With A New Special

Our good friend John Paul (aka “Papa Perrone”) checked in the other day with an update on his truck (which has only been showing up sporadically on 55th btw. Mad+Park for the past few months.) Apparently they’ve been having problem after problem with the truck (including oven issues), but it’s all fixed. The truck is now back Tuesday through Friday on 55th btw. Mad+Park, and they just started a brand new Tuesday & Thursday special: Italian Sausage with peppers and onions on garlic bread. It will alternate with their eggplant parm special,  which is available on Wednesday & Friday. (He will be gone the week of Thanksgiving though, so if you’ve missed the Big Papa- you might want to get out there this week.)

Papa Perrone Completely Redeems Themselves With New Sandwich Challenge Entry
Papa Perrone Will Put Any Hero You Want on Garlic Bread

Papa Perrone is Back on Tuesday: Fans of the pizza, crazy sandwiches, and Uncle Louie G's ice from the Papa Perrone Truck (which has been on vacation for a week and a half) will be happy to hear this news via twitter: they're back tomorrow (Tuesday) on 55th btw. Mad+Park.

Papa Perrone Still Doing Original Sandwich Challenge Entry: Even though the Papa Perrone truck (on 55th btw. Mad+Park) is no longer doing the Rutgers Grease Truck sandwich, they wanted everyone to know they're still serving the pick 2 meatball/eggplant parm/ziti combo sandwiches on garlic bread on Wednesdays and Fridays only.

Papa Perrone Brings Uncle Louie G’s Italian Ices to Midtown

Got a little bit of sad news from the Papa Perrone Pizza Truck (on 55th btw. Mad+Park) this morning.  He’s retiring their official entry into the Midtown Lunch Sandwich Challenge.  The mozzarella stick/french fry/chicken finger homage to the Rutgers’ Grease Trucks may come back in September, for now you’ll have to make due with his regular menu of offerings. Though to make it up for it, starting today Papa Perrone will be serving the famous Louie G’s Italian Ices from Brooklyn.  The flavors will rotate, and $2 will get you two scoops.  Today he’s got Vanilla/Oreo, Spumoni, Rainbow and Lemon.  Might be a good option if the Kogi BBQ line at the Dessert Truck is too long…

An Inside Look at the Papa Perrone’s Grease Truck Special

Grease Truck Sandwich Reminder: If you missed out last week, don't forget that Papa Perrone's Truck (on 55th btw. Mad+Park) will be serving up his version of the Rutgers grease truck sandwiches again today. For those who don't know, that's chicken fingers + french fries + mozzarella sticks on a roll, covered in sauce. Definitely will make for a good first layer to soak up all that tequila you will be pouring into your stomach after work.

An Inside Look at Papa Perrone’s Grease Truck Special

Papa Perrone's

Gee, do you think Midtown Lunch’ers would be interested in a truck that sells sandwiches modeled after the Rutgers grease trucks?  Uh… I’d say so.  Papa Perrone (on 55th btw. Mad+Park) answered the call of the Midtown Lunch Sandwich Challenge yesterday by serving up a chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks, and french fries sandwich with marinara- a well known combo made famous by the Rutgers grease Trucks.  I showed up just after Noon to get mine (knowing that if Papa Perrone only had enough mozzarella sticks and french fries for 20 sandwiches, these things were going to run out fast.)
