Anthony Bourdain Opening Street Food Hall in New York City

Anthony Bourdain and his business partner Stephen Werthen are planning an enormous street food emporium that will serve diverse snacks from all over the world. Bourdain told Eater that the innovative food market will include “a dream list of chefs, operators, street food, and hawker legends from around the world,” and might expand to other cities if things go well.

According to Departures, Bourdain’s new food project will have “40 to 50 single-concept stalls,” each offering one or two specialties.

Although a location has not been announced, the space is expected to be divided into three major sections: a group of stalls dedicated to Asian street food (especially Singapore and Malaysia, “where each of the chefs will present a family dish passed down from generations”), a rotating “geographic spotlight” that will change throughout the year, and finally, a selection of gourmet street food from international and domestic chefs.

Although we still don’t know when or where the food hall will open, Werthen told Departures that the space has a clear vision: “authentic and theatrical but not Disney-like.”

Haydocy to open food-truck park near Hollywood casino

A gourmet food-truck park is planned for a site near the Hollywood Casino Columbus and is
scheduled to open in the spring.

The driving force behind the Hollywood Broad Gourmet Food Park Columbus is area auto
dealer Chris Haydocy. He said today that he got tired of waiting for other people to capitalize on
the opportunity for new restaurants near Hollywood Casino Columbus on the West Side.

As a result, he made the decision to open a food-truck park on some vacant land he owns on
Hollywood Avenue North near Broad Street.

Over time, plans call for Hollywood Broad Gourmet Food Park to host several vintage
Airstream RVs outfitted as gourmet food trucks. The first truck, Land Yacht BBQ, will open at the
park “as soon as the weather breaks” this spring, Haydocy said.

City cracks down on food trucks

SAN DIEGO– There’s battle brewing in San Diego over where food trucks can operate. City officials are trying to rewrite the law to clear up confusion, but some food truck owners worry they are going in the wrong direction.

The city code in question doesn’t allow gourmet food trucks to operate on private property without a special permit.

TSD takes on food truck regulationhe Filner administration wasn’t enforcing the rule, but now interim Mayor Todd Gloria has taken a harder stance on the issue.

Marko Pavlinovic parks his food truck Mangia Mangia Mobile at India and B Streets every Wednesday and hungry customers come out in droves.

Pavlinovic is upset that the city kept him from opening up in a parking lot Tuesday night even though he has a mobile vending license and he has an “A” health code rating.

“They’re shutting us down,” Pavlinovic said. “Yesterday, I was supposed to be at 3rd B Streets in an Ace parking lot and I got a phone call saying, ‘hey, we’re going to shut you down.’”

He rents the lot space so when he can’t sell food, his business is losing money and every dollar counts.

“That’s an average of $1,000 in sales I lose if I don’t go out for one day,” Pavlinovic said.

Gloria said resources are limited and this is not a high priority issue for Neighborhood Code Compliance staff members.

The mayor’s office released a statement saying:

“Interim Mayor Todd Gloria is working with Development Services Department staff to develop new language for the City Council’s consideration which would legally permit food trucks to operate on private property in a manner that balances their viability with the character of the surrounding neighborhood.  Staff anticipates a City Council committee discussion this fall.  Public input will be encouraged.”

Food truck owners have started an online petition to get the right to operate on private property.

san-diego-food-truck-a-rating

The city formula in doubt doesn’t concede epicurean food trucks to work on private skill yet a special permit.

The Filner administration wasn’t enforcing a rule, yet now halt Mayor Todd Gloria has taken a harder position on a issue.

Marko Pavlinovic parks his food lorry Mangia Mangia Mobile during India and B Streets each Wednesday and inspired business come out in droves.

Pavlinovic is dissapoint that a city kept him from opening adult in a parking lot Tuesday night even yet he has a mobile vending permit and he has an “A” health formula rating.

“They’re shutting us down,” Pavlinovic said. “Yesterday, we was ostensible to be during 3rd  B Streets in an Ace parking lot and we got a phone call saying, ‘hey, we’re going to close we down.’”

He rents a lot space so when he can’t sell food, his business is losing income and each dollar counts.

“That’s an normal of $1,000 in sales we remove if we don’t go out for one day,” Pavlinovic said.

OUR THOUGHTS: While halt Mayor Gloria might feel that settling a emanate with food trucks on private skill is a low priority…maybe he should ask a owners of these trucks who are being forced to close down until a laws are altered how they feel about this topic.

Food truck war at Walnut Wednesdays – WKYC

<!–

–>

WKYC

CLEVELAND — Walnut Wednesday has officially come to an end but not without one last food fight. 

Most of the food trucks are independent owners or small up-and-coming business, so when Swensons food truck came in with slashed prices, it fired up the mom-and-pop shops.

“It’s great food.” said Brandy Hinkle, ”I don’t look at other trucks because I love Swensons.”  

That’s one reason why Owner Kelly Waddell of the Nosh Box posted this sign: “The Nosh Box does not support Swensons Drive-In truck at this event.” The other is because of pricing.

“Any business that has a price point that is about half of what the average truck at our event has, it hurts us by under-cutting,” Waddell said.

Swensons is from the Akron area. When they come to Walnut Wednesday they say their local gourmet food is actually priced 20 percent higher than at the restaurants themselves, but it’s still lower than other trucks.

Cori Oliver of Swensons adds, “Our prices are priced a little bit lower then what they would prefer because of their prices, but we are not going to change what we are doing.”

It’s a free enterprise marketing tool that other trucks feel Swensons used to strong-arm their way into the one-of-a-kind event.

But Samantha Severo of the Downtown Cleveland Alliance says that’s not it.

“We did not get strong-armed,” she said. “It’s just the demand is there. Swensons is a name that people want to see in downtown.”

Other trucks like that they’re there. 

“I think it’s good competition for all the other food vendors that may not serve their kind of food again, like at a Walnut Street, an event like this today,” said John Schulze, owner of the Zydeco Bistro food truck. “It gives a lot of variety, more options, and that’s what a Walnut Wednesday is all about.”

Waddell says, “Swensons is the truck today — the truck tomorrow, we don’t know what it’s going to be. May it’ll be another franchise McDonald’s, Burger King … we don’t know what’s coming down the line.”

All of the food trucks that have been involved in Walnut Wednesdays since the beginning, want to continue serving lunch to downtown Clevelanders next year.

Interim mayor Gloria looks to help San Diego food truck vendors operate on …

SAN DIEGO – Interim Mayor Todd Gloria on Thursday ordered city staff to develop an amendment to the municipal code that would allow food trucks to operate on private property.

His action was prompted by a growing controversy over renewed code enforcement efforts, which had slacked off under Bob Filner, who resigned as mayor Aug. 30.

Food trucks are currently not allowed on private property unless they’re at a permitted special event. The city has looked away until recently while they set up shop in paid parking lots around the city.

With enforcement stepping up again, Curbside Bites, which books gourmet food trucks, has posted an online petition on Change.org that addresses Gloria and City Council members.

It reads, “I support food trucks being allowed to continue to operate on private property within the city of San Diego” and allows a place for an electronic signature.

Curbside Bites contends that Gloria reneged on previous city promises to not enforce the private property restriction while a new ordinance is developed.

“This is a complicated issue,” Gloria said.

He said food truck operators, restaurant owners annoyed at their proximity and neighborhoods all have issues.

The interim mayor compared it with medical marijuana, where dispensaries proliferated this year because of a lack of enforcement.

“The absence of policy has allowed something to happen,” Gloria said.

He said rumors that food trucks are no longer allowed anywhere in the city are untrue. He said he hopes to soon get a proposed amendment to the City Council’s Land Use and Housing Commission soon.

More than 1,000 people have signed the petition, out of a goal of 1,500 set by Curbside Bites.
