Philly-area food truck Anatolian Delight serves up Turkish cuisine on wheels - just look for the big purple truck!

Owner-chef Okan Zinetbas was born in Istanbul, and just recently took the wheel of his new purple food, after having a food cart for 10 years.

Iron Chef Jose Garces has a new restaurant in New Hope.

Look inside Jose Garces' new spot Stella in New Hope

New Hope is home to a new 12-room boutique that overlooks the Delaware River and sits alongside the Bucks County Playhouse.

It is named in honor of the ghost light tradition found in theaters for leaving a light on at night for the ghosts of the theater. The building was renovated from a broken-down inn and restaurant built in 1952.

And once again it will be home to a restaurant with Iron Chef Jose Garces setting up shop with his latest venture, Stella. Jeannette Reyes shows us around the picturesque spot.
