Food trucks offer a simple option for mobile mealtime, as diners can avoid the messy splatter of foodapults and the puréed sandwiches of large hadron colliders. Keep cuisine on a palatable path with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of Italian fare at GotChef in Milford.
GotChef's experienced culinary artist and restaurateur Biagio Barone spins all-natural ingredients into classic Italian entrees available for carryout. From his victual vehicle—which is conveniently parked at Milford station—Biagio serves up lunch and dinner from a chalkboard menu that—like a forgetful supervillain's desktop globe—rotates daily. A piquant pasta special drapes a nest of hand-made linguine in limoncello and succulent jumbo shrimp ($14), while the rollatini di melanzane stuffs savory prosciutto di parma and ricotta cheese into breaded eggplant ($11). Braised veal shanks perch atop a pillowy pile of polenta in the osso buco milanese ($16) and filet mignon slow-cooks in a fully insulated sleeping bag of phyllo in the fileto di manzo ($14). Instead of frying last night's leftovers over a disposable lighter, head to GotChef around midday to sample their savory lunch options ($4.99–$9.99).
