Rouge Tomate’s Central Park food cart is back, with a brand-new menu

The food cart returns to Central Park this week. Expect divine burgers and ice cream sandwiches, all made with the restaurant's nutrition-focused standards.

Rouge Tomate Food CartCentral Park hot dog vendors beware: After rolling onto the scene last year, Rouge Tomate’s gourmet food cart returns for a second season this week, with a revamped, burger-themed menu.

Executive chef Jeremy Bearman designed the menu using the same seasonal, nutrition-focused standards you’re treated to at the restaurant.

Burger options ($6–$8) range from grass-fed buffalo with wild arugula and pickled ramps to a Greek-inspired portobello patty with local tomato and cucumber tzatziki. They’ll be served on freshly baked whole wheat rolls with a side of pickled greenmarket vegetables.

The cart will also stock fresh juices from Rouge Tomate’s juice bar, soups, and the most scrumptious-sounding house-made ice cream sandwiches ($4) we’ve maybe ever heard of: Think semolina lemon shortcake with rhubarb-strawberry yogurt or coconut-blueberry macaroons with coconut lemongrass sorbet. Michelin is going to have to start rating food carts.—Lisa Elaine Held

The cart parks at 64th St. and Fifth Ave., at the northeast entrance of the Central Park Zoo, daily 10 a.m.—6 p.m., or @rougetomatecart on Twitter.
