Alan Harding, one of the pioneers of the Brooklyn restaurant renaissance (Patois, Schnack, Pacifico, Gowanus Yacht Club, Trout and many others) has opened a food truck called Hot Bird.

Mr. Harding’s website says “So after three inspections and mucho dinero I, Alan Harding, am a fully licensed mobile food vendor.  The hardest part of the whole process was the waiting, every time you fail an inspection you have a two week wait to get a new appointment. I passed on July 13 2010, let the games begin.”
