Momos at Mark's

Plus wood-fired pizza

by Sabine Bickford

From the June, 2017 issue

Mark's Carts opened for its sixth season in April on Washington just west of Ashley. Returning this year are Pita Cruiser, El Manantial, Simply Spanish, Hut-K, and Great Grilled Sandwiches. Owner Mark Hodesh is also excited by the arrival of two new carts. Everest Momo, started by Himalayan Bazaar owner Pem Dorjee Sherpa, serves up Nepalese and Tibetan food, while Wood Fired Up cooks personal pizzas in an on-site wood oven.

Each cart sets its own hours, but Hodesh says they are open generally about 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., and some are closed on Monday. "Of course everything is weather dependent."

Bill's Beer Garden is also in full swing. Though it retains co-founder Bill Zolkowski's name, Hodesh is now sole owner--he bought out Zolkowski in January. In May and June, the pop-up bar in the Downtown Home parking lot is open Tuesday through Saturday 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. In July through September, it will open one hour earlier. Hodesh is planning a number of events at the garden, including fundraisers for the University Musical Society and Planned Parenthood in the fall. "The thought is having a beer garden as the 'community living room,'" he says.    (end of article)
