Come have lunch with us on the streets of New York!
Increasingly, New York’s mobile food carts have moved from street meat (think tube steaks, lamb gyro) to more haute (if not haughty) culinary offerings like kati rolls, Jamaican jerk chicken and scrumptious baked goods! Join us for a strolling lunch around Midtown to sample an international buffet of offerings, observe the constructive genius that cram full kitchens into improbably small carts, and to learn the stories of their proprietors–from struggling immigrants to culinary school drop-outs, to former 4-star restaurant chefs. Along the way, learn about the history of Midtown, the history of lunch, and the challenges of running these thriving but feverishly demanding small businesses.
