Crain's reports that the city has named the trucks that will take residence in the Tavern on the Green parking lot! We've already heard about the Ladle of Love from Westchester, but now Rickshaw Dumpling, Van Leeuwen, and Pera Mediterranean Brasserie can join in the food fest.
All four trucks will open on October 15 and will serve "a range of foods, including ice cream, dumplings and tacos, at the location where the Crystal Room once stood." Also of note: only 15 applicants applied for the spots. Everyone else knows working with the city isn't always such a joy. The vendors will have the option to renew once their first year is up, a hint that there is no great rush to get that space reopened as a proper restaurant.
