Tabla Street Cart


Like Mario Batali and Daisy May’s Adam Perry Lang, not to mention his boss Danny Meyer—who, you may recall, used to run a humble little hot-dog cart out of Madison Square Park before he turned it into a full-fledged shack—Tabla’s Floyd Cardoz has entered the pushcart business. He’s set up right outside his restaurant, across from the park, and within paratha-tossing distance of the dreaded Shake Shack line, hoping, perhaps, to steer some of that sweet action his way. On the brief takeaway-only menu: a chicken tikka roti roll with mint chutney, a Bombay bhel puri, and a chocolate kulfi pop dipped in more chocolate like an Eskimo Pie. — Rob Patronite and Robin Raisfeld
