Back in February, Fany Gerson told us that she was thinking of partnering with Rockaway Taco to open a La Newyorkina concession stand on the Rockaway Beach boardwalk. If her plans materialize, it looks like she’ll be in good company.
Grub Street has heard that Rockaway Taco’s Andrew Field and David Selig have been talking to the Meat Hook, Vinegar Hill House, Roberta’s, and Caracas Arepa Bar about contributing food to the boardwalk concession stands. There may also be 20 or so mobile vendors roaming the beach, all chosen by Rockaway Taco. Should it all come to pass, expect the A train to get a lot more crowded and beardy this summer.
