Food truck operators still fighting for a place in Raleigh as restaurant owners try to defend turf

Posted By on Thu, Apr 21, 2011 at 3:58 PM

Mike Stenke parked his Klausie's Pizza food truck on the corner of Dawson and Hargett streets, just across the street from the Avery C. Upchurch Municipal Building on Tuesday night and handed out two pizzas worth of warm, gooey bite-sized free samples to build favor for proposed zoning changes that would allow him to regularly operate in the city. John and Karla Schriner of Knightdale each bought a shirt with a picture of a food truck and text reading, “Legalize It.” “It’s a lot harder for them to get permits here,” Karla said. “A lot of good food trucks stay...

Dillard's Bar-B-Q: Back in Moderation

Posted By on Tue, Apr 19, 2011 at 8:17 PM

There is a way back into Dillard's Bar-B-Q: host an event.

"If someone wants to hold an event in the restaurant, we'll rent the restaurant out," says Wilma Dillard, who ran her family's business until it closed last month due to an uncertain economy.

The proprietor, Ari Berenbaum, says that "people like the gambit,” as...

You Say Tomato, I Say Tomorrow: produce in peril at the farmers market

Posted By on Fri, Apr 15, 2011 at 11:07 AM

photo: Jeremy M. LangeSara Broadwell at the Durham Farmers' Market, November 2010Nine years running, I've marked the arrival of spring by Sara Broadwell's return to the Durham Farmers Market with her perennial crop of asparagus. Sara's husband, Graham, used to come along with her, adorned in his trademark khaki coveralls, but these days Sara handles the retail side of their business, Catbriar Farm, up in Caswell County. She's right there at the east entrance to the pavilion, and I always visit her first, promptly at 8:00 a.m. These days, I have to: Last Saturday, bringing her first asparagus of the...
