NYC Embracing Gourmet Food Trucks

Check out New York City, they are embracing the Gourmet Food Trucks instead of trying to get rid of them. They are starting to expand their locations for 2011. It would be nice if other cities would take their lead and use this as an example.

Tuesday, January 11, 2011, by Amanda Kludt


The New York Parks Dept. just put out a request for proposals for new mobile food vendors all over the city. Last year, it jumped on the food truck bandwagon by seeking quality vendors (i.e., more than just hot dogs and pretzels) for both the Tavern on the Green parking lot (soup and dumpling trucks) and Brooklyn Bridge Park (Ditch Plains, Calexico, Blue Marble Ice Cream), and they're continuing on this year with a search for vendors for what looks to be every possible park, square, or intersection in their inventory including Tompkins Square Park,McCarren Park, Prospect Park, Central Park, Riverside Park, the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, SoHo Square, and elsewhere."
