On Friday, March 18, Friends of the High Line released the first public request for proposals for food carts on the High Line for the 2011 Season. Since the High Line opened in 2009, park visitors regularly request food and beverage during their visits. FHL is looking for partners who will create food that is as thoughtful, creative, and interesting as the High Line itself and who want to build a strong partnership and active collaboration with the High Line.
The food and beverage will enhance the High Line experience, while drawing from the bounty of the region's sustainable farmers, ranchers, and purveyors. The food offerings, like the plantings on the Line itself, should reflect seasonality. Offerings should be welcoming, interesting, and accessible, and the menu should satisfy individuals visiting the park for a moment of quiet solitude, as well as groups of friends and families out to socialize and engage the city.
