Jordan's Steakhouse on wheels

Jordan'sJordan Naftal, owner of the late Jordan's Steakhouse in Ellicott City, will revive a couple menu favorites in a very different setting.

Instead of a quaint historic-district rowhouse, he'll sell Caesar salads with grilled steak and grilled shrimp from a truck.

"Howard County's First Ever, Gourmet, Mobile Food Truck is coming soon!" he writes on Twitter.

I hope to have more information for you soon, but for now, I'm left with the small bites Naftal posted recently on Twitter@grilledCaesar.

The main thing for people pining for the salads since Jordan's shut: "Grilled Caesar: It's Coming!"

Did he use all the money he didnt pay his landlord/employees to buy the truck?

aside from political implications involving this restaurateur, I wonder if our street food discussions evolved this plan?

Could it be that he hatched this idea from the denizens of D@L? If so, shouldn't we be receiving royalties?

the more obvious connection would be the burger truck

for the record every state in this country has a mobile food truck? the film industry is the creator of the mobile truck, so why do you try and collect royalties from them Joyce W. I live on the west coast and this idea just happens to be unique and i wold welcome this to the west coast for sure.

hey, great sense of humor, ljtwigs.

Speaking of restaurateurs getting out of the game for the game on wheels, what ever happened to Joshau Hill's bbq on wheels and the discount coupons he was selling to finance the venture?

Bob UU, according to the In Good Taste blog at Baltimore Magazine, Joshau Hill and his partner pulled the plug on their venture in late August 2009, not long after they had started to shill the idea. His current whereabouts are unknown.
