The outdoor terrace of Tavern on the Green is going to become home to a number of food vendors starting Oct. 15, according to the Parks Department.
The famed eatery served its final meal at the end of 2009 and the city bandied a couple of suggestions around for the space (including hosting bike rentals there), before settling on renting the place out to food vendors.
Food offerings will include selections from Ladle of Love, Pera Mediterranean Brasserie, Rickshaw Dumpling Truck and Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream.
The city is giving the vendors a one-year contract for the space with an option to renew.
At some point they would like to get a full-time restaurant into the space.
“We’re going to offer a new request for proposals for the space at some point in the future that hasn’t been decided yet,” said Phil Abramson, a Parks Department spokesperson.
