NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – It’s Food Truck Frenzy on Monday and that means New Yorkers can sample some of the city’s best food trucks.
The Zagat Food Truck Frenzy is a gathering of 20 of New York City’s favorite food trucks.
Event producer Tim Zagat says food trucks have impacted New York City dining and cuisine in recent years.
“Just like the street vendors that are a vital part of the New York City culture, we expect food trucks will also come to be accepted city-wide,” he said. “They are generally inexpensive and they usually have better food and more of it.”
So what was the inspiration for the event? Zagat says, the people.
“In our recent surveys across the country, an increasing number of people say they are frequenting food trucks and/or following them via social networking sites,” he said. “Given this interest, we have been rating and reviewing food trucks throughout the past year. This also inspired us to celebrate this popular new trend.”
The Zagat Food Truck Frenzy is Monday, May 23 from 12pm to 3pm at 21st and 22nd streets between 10th and 11th avenues.
