Foodie Truckstop Meals on wheels



Damian Bohager organizes special food truck events—one known as The Gathering—plus regular parties of trucks and eaters; his Taste of Three Cities features vendors from New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore. These events attract thousands of hungry patrons who pay admission to wander among the rigs, purchasing paper cones of fries slathered in crab dip, black bean burgers, bibimbop and barbecue. After responding to the city’s request for proposals, Bohager and his son Halston won the right to lease the Hollywood Diner. The Bohagers want to update the inside of the retro structure that once served up dogs and malts on Long Island. Plans call for landscaping the outside and placing picnic tables, an outdoor bar and even a stage for musical groups in the area bordered by Saratoga and Holliday Streets, adjacent to the Baltimore Sunday Farmers Market. “We’re not just looking at it as a food truck place,” says Damian. “We want to create a vibrant urban space.” Currently a coffee truck in the morning and a rotating brigade of (at least two) trucks at lunch pull up to the diner. Patrons can bring their food inside to get out of the cold.
