It seems like there are plenty of street food vendors these days…but there will be even more over the next few weeks.

A number of food trucks and carts have seasonal permits, which run from April through October.

Everyone may not be back on Monday, April 1st, but over the next week or two, we should see savory vendors like Bistro Truck, Luke’s Lobster, Fun Buns NYC, Morocho, Desi Truck, Okadaman, the Famous Dal Wagon and Marky Ramone’s Cruisin’ Kitchen returning.

We will also see great frozen dessert vendors returning such as…

the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck, Kelvin Slush, Coolhaus, Andy’s Italian Ices, Monsieur Singh Lassi Pops, Itizy Ice Cream and Wooly’s Ice.

Of course, the Vendy Award Winners and other fantastic vendors at the Red Hook Ballfields will be back in April too.

For further details on any of the above vendors, check the list to the right. To see where everyone is parking and their specials, check our Mobile Munchies twitter feed.

  1. Hi-Why haven\’t the trucks come back to the Financial District? There\’s a few that come but not to the extent they used to before Sandy. There\’s not as many generators on the streets here so there is room, but the trucks aren\’t coming back. Frites is always here, and some others that I frankly never eat at. What do you know about this, if anything? Thanks.

  2. The biggest problem we hear about FiDi is the parking. All the trucks complain about how difficult it is to park there. That said, there are some regular spots.

    Old Slip usually has 1 or 2 trucks.
    Water St & Front St around Wall St usually have a few trucks within a block or 2. Also Water & Broad.
    Hanover Square sometimes gets a trucks or two, and has some good carts too, such as the banh mi cart and our heros, if it’s still there.
    There’s also the World Financial Center, but that’s way off to the west if you don’t work right there.

  3. It hasn’t been that bad. Most, if not all of the regular cart vendors are back and I have seen a fair share of trucks(Korilla, Bob&Jo, Cinnamon Snail, Frites and Meats, Comme Ci, Comme Ca, Miami Food Machine, Phil’s Steaks) as well.

    Just depends on what days you are looking.
