Lower Manhattan might be home to a large population of office workers, but lunch options still remain somewhat scarce. But all that’s about to change: As DNAinfo reports, a rotating group of five trucks per day will soon be rolling outside the World Financial Center digs in attempt to bring a greater variety of food to the neighborhood.
The building is working with the New York City Food Truck Association to pick a regular rotation of its 30 members to serve Battery Park City. Possible vendors include Wafels & Dinges, Mexicue, Frites ‘N’ Meats, Souvlaki GR, Schnitzel & Things, Taim Mobile, Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream, Frying Dutchmen, and Red Hook Lobster, with trucks to be parked seven days a week on North End Avenue during lunchtime hours. And with North End Grill about to open on North End Avenue, it looks like Battery Park City might soon be nicknamed Eatery Park City.
