Food Trucks Galore
If you’re looking for your favorite food truck this summer, go swing by 11th & Nicholas during the day and you’ll likely find more than one truck parked there, serving up some delicious food.

Mobile Mexican

Maria Bonita originally began as an open seating restaurant. When the family-owned restaurant closed, owner Itzel Lopez explained they decided to stay in business and do something different. That’s how they wound up taking their food to the people in a food truck.

“With food trucks, you’re able to bring your food to more people in different areas of the city,” says Lopez.

Two years into the process, Maria Bonita has expanded and now has three food trucks.

Growing mobility, growing popularity
She said having multiple trucks parked in different venues has helped grow her business by gaining her more customers. On any given week, the three trucks cover 15 or more locations.

“Our reputation...

The French Connection

Taste of Omaha will have a dizzying array of food available to sample, but there’s one eatery presenting food that under no circumstances do you want to miss: Le Petit Paris – French Bakery. 

“We are here to offer a trip to France without a passport,” says Cedric Fichepain, owner of Le Petit Paris – French Bakery and Le Voltaire restaurant.

The bakery opened in October of last year and has proven to be a perfect complement to Fichepain’s restaurant. At Le Petit Paris, French equipment and skilled bakers combine with American ingredients to offer diners authentic French baked goods including pastries, croissants and baguettes.

They’re trying to make a comeback though, and this time they’re turning to the generosity of their fans. Support Localmotive via their Kickstarter campaign from now until June 26. They hope to raise $40,000 so they can once again satisfy the late-night appetites of Old Market dwellers. http://kickstarter.com/profile/localmotive

Espana

If you know me well, you know me as clever, charismatic, and not even a little bit awkward. I’ll pause for the collective eye rolls from my dearest friends, co-workers, and boyfriend.

But every now and then, even I feel the need to turn off the charm and just allow myself to relax and be entertained while dining out. This leaves me to make a difficult decision - do I shell out the dollars for a beautiful meal while settling for the sounds of the couple at a neighboring table breaking up as my sole means of cultural stimulation?

I do not, my friends. Instead, I search the city for...
