We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Construction at Downtown's 7+Fig complex that means the arrival of a Target store means that restaurants on the lower level have had to shutter temporarily, leaving local lunch-seeking workers hungry for midday options. Now there are plans between the property and the Southern California Mobile Food Vendors Association (MFVA) to call in the food trucks to rescue, reports Blogdowntown.

Brookfield Properites told the SoCal MFVA they're looking for well-known trucks that are visually appealing who will make a good fit for the plaza. SoCal MFVA's Matt Gellar told Blogdowntown they will arrange to have "different trucks every day at least for the first three weeks," and that patrons will be given questionnaires so they can request which trucks they want to see. The trucks will be there Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Full service restaurants at 7+Fig, including "Adoro Mexican Grille, California Pizza Kitchen, and Morton's the Steakhouse will remain open throughout construction," which is expected to be done in Fall 2012.
