Curb Your Enthusiasm, But Food Trucks Can Now Sell Liquor!

Curb Your Enthusiasm, But Food Trucks Can Now Sell Liquor!

Food truck fever climbs higher with liquor licenses.

Valentina Park

It seems that food trucks are slowly but surely taking over the sidewalks of New York, whether it’s the Cool Haus Ice Cream Truck or the Rickshaw Dumpling Truck. It was only a matter of time before one of these trucks sought out the one license that has always been a money maker for restaurant establishments: the liquor license.

This past Thursday, the Pera Turkish Taco Truck became to first secure the right to sell beer, wine, and cocktails. Truck owner Burak Karacam proudly beamed, “we are honored to have been granted this singular, precedent-setting privilege.” The one year license allows Pera to serve $6 – $12 alcoholic beverages under the condition that consumers drink in the mobile truck’s assigned terrace area (67th Street and Central Park West). Other trucks in the area, Rickshaw Dumpling and Ladle of Love, have followed Pera’s lead and applied for liquor licenses as well.
