Dovetail’s Fraser Pitches Central Park Cart and Café

By

Dovetail chef John Fraser has submitted a bid to open a gourmet food cart called Greenscart and a caf named Greensward, both in Central Park, Eater reports. Food for the cart would be prepared at the caf, Fraser said in his bid. The cart would serve a scaled down and more accessible version of Dovetails locavore fare, along with local wines and three kegs of local beer. Imagined menu items so far include heirloom tomato salads, hand-cut muffelatta, handmade duck sausage on ciabatta, gelatos and picnic baskets with Champagne, sandwiches, cheese, and salads. What, no sherry? For the caf, expect anything from a pig-head pizzetta to a big escarole salad with fried risotto, but nothing over $16. The names could be better Fraser Fast Food? Central Cart? There have to be better options but having seen how Fraser adapts his high-end food during the restaurants sizable, bargain Sunday suppers, we would be thrilled to see the projects under his tutelage.
