As temperatures drop during the fall, food trucks naturally have a harder time bringing in customers off the street, says Baltimore-based hospitality consultant Willy Dely. But thanks to a weeklong event he’s organized for next month, Baltimore’s mobile restaurateurs will have seven days devoted to serving up their delicious fare.

If you’re a fan of oysters, beer and outdoor festivals – or just a fan of food in general – you’ve got a lot to look forward to this week. Here’s what’s coming up in Baltimore’s food world?
I bought my house in Hampden in 2000. Yep, my neighborhood’s gotten better and better every year. And, when you look at the restaurants, even more so. I got into cooking later in life…in my mid-30s, Julia Child, Jacques Pepin, America’s Test Kitchen and Ina Garten all taught me how to cook. And then in my 40s, Hampden got new restaurant after new restaurant. When I moved in, there was Holy Frijoles, Cafe Hon, Golden West and a few others. I still miss Mamie’s lobster night. Now? We have The Food Market, Dylan’s Oyster Cellar, Arômes, Paulie Gee’s Pizza and the list goes on. And on. Saturated? Maybe, but the good ones will stay. Quite possibly one of the best places to open in years? The Bluebird Cocktail Room.
