Game of Thrones Food Trucks
Union Square West (bet. 14th and 15th streets)
Game of Thrones fans waiting for Tom Colicchio's Taste of Westeros may find the 300-person line to be "a little intimidating," but Union Square's "ambiance of skateboards and farmer's markets" makes for a comfortable backdrop versus a busy intersection like Times Square, which "would be insane." First-time rabbit eaters find the tender meat to be "gamey in an awesome way" and say it "tastes like chicken." The stewed pistachios are a big hit among diners who "don't know what these green things are but keep eating them." Itinerant foodies express "faith in Tom Colicchio" and note his wooden plates to be "a cool touch." The trout with almond butter is served hot even if the customers' "toes are frozen," and the famous lemoncakes are "filled with ooey-gooey goodness" and "not overpoweringly lemony." Overall, line-standers agree that "it's all worth the wait."
