Harlem’s bustling Restaurant Row will have a fleet of new four-wheeled competitors beginning next month.
A week after a successful dry run, food trucks and vendors — including some from the community — will be a recurring fixture each Saturday on Frederick Douglass Blvd. when Harlem Eats returns May 10, organizers told The News.
“It’s going to be an eclectic mix of food trucks and gourmet street food vendors,” said Jessica Chornesky, founder of Harlem Eats, which originally launched under the name Harlem Food Truck Rally on April 5.
