Community Board 8 had tried to keep food carts away from Central Park, but reps for Rouge Tomate tell us that the restaurant will have a cart at 64th Street and Fifth Avenue starting June 15. To make sure the so-called Rouge Tomate Cart in the Park is low-impact, itll have solar panels for electricity, will be made from recycled materials, and will use biodegradable paper products (hence its certification from the Green Restaurant Association). The ingredients that will go into the salads, sandwiches, and seasonal soups will be largely local and sustainable (the BLTs bacon and lettuce, for instance, will come from tristate farms). A final menu is still in the works, but tentative plans at one point included seasonal juices, and homemade ice cream and fruit soda.
