City Seeks Old-Timey Food Carts for Central Park
The food cart is just out of frame.
Mobile food vendors have been dabbling in the genres of medieval fantasy and even explosive action these days. But, if the Parks Department has its way, we're likely going to see more of them doing period pieces.
According to DNAinfo, the city is looking to place vendors with a "Victorian-era" look to their carts on Central Park's Cherry Hill. Not that the menu should be Victorian. The RFP specifically stated "high quality, yet affordable" foods with some healthy options. So, no need to get specific with nine-course meals featuring roasted meats, jam and jellies, and cakes. That would be just silly.
