Shellie Kitchen's Brass Knuckle food truck serves up fare inspired by musicians. Popular offerings include Fryin Maiden (a fried chicken sandwich dedicated to Iron Maiden), Prawns N Roses (a crispy prawn taco tribute to Guns N Roses), and Cheesy Manilow (wedge salad with cheddar dressing, an homage to Barry Manilow).
These dishes and more will be served at a special dinner on Jan. 17 at Trace Restaurant inside the W Hotel in San Francisco. Trace executive chef Paul Piscopo has been collaborating with food truck chefs in a dinner series called "Local Motion."
Piscopo and Kitchen have a large menu of sonic delights planned. Among them: The B-52 (rock lobster carpaccio and blood orange, named for the B-52s), Smoke on the Water (smoked mushroom tortellini with porcini broth in honor of Deep Purple), and Sunday Not So Bloody Sunday (nitrogen ice cream with assorted toppings for U2).
At $40, the meal costs less than an average concert ticket, and is likely to be more filling.
