Dana Hill and bunch of his college buddies run a crepe stand out of wooden box they call the Cowboy Cart. But this box has a serious culinary pedigree.
For Hill and his friends, college was Johnson & Wales's College of Culinary Arts. And the Cart is a custom kitchen on wheels, hand-built by Hill and his father, who owns John Bozeman's Bistro in Bozeman, Montana. Hill has been operating the cart for four years, but this is his first year parking it in Denver.
The catering business has been good to Hill, and the crew's crepes have proved popular. "Colorado people like crepes," says Dylan Gaffney, whose unofficial Cart title is "Fisherman," for his ability to reel in customers.

Once hooked, people can try some of the Cart's favorites, or the week's crepe flavor. "We try to use a different international cuisine each week," says Executive Chef Collin Bender. They've had Mediterranean and Italian; at last week's Civic Center Eats, it was a turkey club with avocado and ranch.
