Clover Newbury Street has finally arrived. A plug-in food truck is in place behind the Hynes Convention Center MBTA station, and the popular vegetarian concept is serving up its simple and tasty treats to the good people of Back Bay.
Clover, which has seven local brick-and-mortar locations and four food trucks, officially added the Newbury Street truck to its ranks on Monday, after four years of working to bring the concept to life.
The company's CEO Ayr Muir had made a deal with the MBTA back in 2012 to open the city's first plug-in truck.
"It needs to be all electric because the MBTA doesn't allow propane on their property," Muir told Eater last summer. Clover worked to make the 275-square-foot space compliant with city regulations and finally made the location a reality. Clover posted about the opening on Twitter, noting that the Newbury Street truck would be open until 2 p.m. today.
Eater has reached out to Clover for more details, including full hours for the truck, and will post any updates when they are available.
UPDATE: The new Clover is currently open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays (but closing at 2 p.m. today), but the plan is to increase the hours to 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week soon. Plus, keep an eye out for details on potential maple syrup-themed items in early April in celebration of sugaring season.
