If You’re Planning a Summer Party, These Local Food Trucks Are a Must

Summer is certainly the time for parties, whether to be for graduations, birthdays or just a good old fashioned summer get-together. However, it’s not easy to feed all of those people. These days, though, you can forego the catering and instead, book one of our local food trucks.

Around the Upper West Side, we have lots of options for food trucks so you can support a local business while also keeping all of your party guests happy. Check out some of these trucks and their tasty eclectic fare!

The Casbah, located at 160 W 66th St, New York which is a seven minute drive from your Sagamore apartment, is a Halal truck serving fresh Middle Eastern budget snacks from falafels to gyros and shish kebabs.

If you love Halal food, then this is the truck to book for a meal that all of your guests are sure to be talking about for weeks to come! Plus, it’s healthy, high-quality meat so you can enjoy it with a clean conscience.

Tony Dragon’s Grille, located at Madison Ave & E 62nd St, New York which is a 12 minute drive from your Sagamore apartment, started off as a small stainless-steel push-wagon: the platform from which Antonio would begin selling hot dogs and pretzels and eventually led to what has become an institution of fine gourmet Greek/Mediterranean food.

From common hot dog pusher to pioneer street-burger flipper to artisan chicken-breast griller, Tony’s commitment to continually reinventing himself quickly gained him the attention of some of New York’s most prominent media outlets, including The New York Times and New York Post, as well as a slew of loyal customers.

Schatzie Prime Meats, located at 2665 Broadway, New York which is a 15 minute walk from your Sagamore apartment, is a stalwart butcher shop known for prime and organic meats, plus sandwiches made with house cuts.

Schatzie believes a big part of taking care of customers is selling you only the best of the best and that means USDA prime beef, the highest possible beef grade available. Schatzie uses the same high standard when it comes to the quality of his Colorado lamb, milk-fed veal, pork and sausages.

Harlem Shambles, located at 2141 Frederick Douglass Blvd, New York which is a seven minute drive from your Sagamore apartment, is a stylish shop for high-quality, house-butchered beef, lamb, pork, poultry and more from New York farms.

They have a terrific staff helping you, from a butcher with 40 years of experience to a newer butcher who worked his way up from the back room of a local supermarket chain. Everyone who works at Harlem Shambles lives within one mile of the shop. Local, just like all of their products!
