Leave The Gun, Take The Cannoli With La Bella Torte - Roosevelt Island's First Mobile Food Truck Makes It's Debut Tonight With Italian Pastries

Roosevelt Island's first mobile food truck made its debut this evening, La Bella Torte, specializing in Italian deserts. According to La Bella Torte web site:
Welcome to La Bella Torte, a dessert truck specializing in Italian Pastries. Started by Joe and AnnMarie Glaser after finding themselves out of work. He a plumber, she a secretary, they found themselves with a love for baking, and a need to make money. So they gathered their resources, went to culinary school and came out pastry chefs. Once that was done they decided to take over the world one cannoli at a time, so they found a truck grabbed their cakes and took it on the road....
Here's their truck menu:
Cannoli
Banana Nutella Cake
Rosemary Olive Oil &Blood Orange Cake
Cake Truffles
Chocolate Salted Caramel Tart
Cholate dipped Keylime Pie
Tiramisu

According to NY Street Food:
... In the cannoli, I opted for the chocolate chip filling, which Joe squeezed fresh into the pastry shell.  He then sprinkled some confectioner’s sugar on top.  Some people, like my father-in-law, will only eat cannolis if they are freshly filled.  I totally understand.

The thick, creamy filling was awesome.  And there was some nuance to it, with what tasted like a hint of nutmeg in the cream filling.  Most bites had chocolate chips too.  Excellent cannoli, Joe.

A rosemary olive oil cake didn’t sound all that appealing to me at first, but my wife wanted to try it, and Joe suggested it too.  I usually associate rosemary and olive oil with chicken, not cake, but this was superb....
When I saw the La Bella Torte Food Truck about an hour ago, it was parked on the West Promenade between the Tram and Subway Station.

More Food Truck are on their way to Roosevelt Island.

I know this will come across as complaining and being ungrateful but it does bother me that the chalk board takes up half of the already narrow sidewalk. Please lose the board or fasten it to the sides of the truck.

Food truck close to each other actually attract more customers for everyone.  A food truck is not a destination restaurant.  If, say, two people are walking together and one wants an ice cream and the other wants a taco and both trucks are there, they will both eat, but it's just as likely that neither one will if only one can be satisfied.  They will just go somewhere where they can both find something to eat.  This is something RIOC does not understand, as its plan for scattering the truck in isolated places shows.

It looks like they won't be here for long the free month on roosevelt island is only 2 weeks, and they want 345 a month for every sector the trucks go to, so if a truck wants to go from sector 1 to sector 2 its another permit they have to apply for.  I think they just did this to shut people up, so they can say we gave the trucks a chance and they didn't want to be on the island.  Its really sad, because there are a lot of trucks that would have come tothe island and i'm sure a lot of residents who want the trucks there, but unfortunately the powers that be don't want it

Since the RIOC meeting about food trucks are videotaped and available here on this blog I watched them all. The only reason the RIOC (or better, the one or two people who are actually 10% in favor of that permit fee) offers is that the "ice cream" truck and the fruitstand are paying this kind of money without any complaints. Every input from actually food trucks or people in the know are shrugged off. It's like a parallel world these (the RIOC) people live in.

Actually, the machinegun shoot took place at Black Dog Gun Range in Hilham Tn, last June 23-24, 2012. This was the debut nationally advertised event, which attracted approximately 3000 viewing public.For more Information CLICK HEREGuns for sale
