Emboldened in their unified opposition to Williamsburg Walks, a number of Bedford's business owners are turning on the neighborhood's food trucks. It's dog eat dog out here!
The ever-popular Endless Summer taco truck and Van Leeuwen Ice Cream truck were both mentioned in a Brooklyn Paper article by storefront merchants looking to lay blame on falling profits.
“They affect business in the area in a pretty detrimental way,” said Blackbird Café owner Emmanuel Cris. “It’s tough enough to pay rent in this neighborhood.”
Maybe if Blackbird Café hired competent waitstaff who put customer service ahead of smoking outside with their friends, we would patronize their restaurants. Until then, I choose fantastic and quick burritos from street carts.
