The Steak Truck Might Leave Midtown
With all the fighting that goes on for spots in Midtown one would be inclined to believe that running a cart or truck in this part of NYC would be a fairly lucrative operation. Selling low cost, low priced food in one of the busiest sections of the busiest city in the country should be a slam dunk, right? Well apparently not, because the Steak Truck (which has one of the better spots in the city on Park Ave. and 47th) is considering packing it in, and moving to a different part of the city.
The truck most certainly saw a bump in business after their good showing in Street Meat Palooza 2, but it’s clearly not enough. According to the owner, there is just too much competition in Midtown- and the number of people working in the area has gotten smaller while the number of carts and trucks have increased. For those who believe that the current vendor invasion will weed out the under-performers, this will be seen as a sign of capitalism at work. But that will be little consolation for the fans of the Steak Truck. The move is not set in stone, so if you are a Steak Truck fan- and don’t want to lose their waffle fry topped chicken and lamb over rice plate- you may want to start eating there a little more often.
