The City Paper dining guide in your yellow box

The City Paper's cover story is on food trucks. Here's Jill Rosen's September 2010 Baltimore Sun article on the food-truck phenomenon.

[Would you like for me to gather up a bunch of scattered information about Baltimore Food trucks and tie it up with a pretty red ribbon. I could do that, you know.]

And tucked inside the City Paper  -- EAT, the annual dining guide. 72 pages, stuffed with color.  I love the new Rocket to Venus ad.

They kept it simple this year (I was responsible, I believe, for the supplement's worst. concept. ever.)

Restaurants (except for Corks) are arranged alphabetically within neighborhoods. And how does EAT break down the city?

In this order: Federal Hill -- South Baltimore -- Canton/Highland town -- Fells Point --Little Italy -- Harbor East --Downtown -- Mount Vernon/Bolton Hill/Station North --Charles Village/Waverly -- Roland Park/Mt. Washington -- Hampden/Remington -- Hamilton -- County.

There are more listings than ever, and the blurbs are briefer. Icons are minimalist" Dollars signs ($, $$ or $$$) designate the cost of the average entree; BYOB, parking, outdoor dining, late-night dining.

Handsome. Congratulations to my old pals for rolling that boulder up the hill.

I work in DC, so I'm more familiar with the DC food trucks than those in Baltimore. What I would LOVE to see in Baltimore is something like this:
