Public Fare, Danny Meyer's new venture at the home of Shakespeare in the Park, is slated to open on Wednesday but Serious Eaters Dyan and James of Fat of the Land got a little preview, and sent over these photos of the food. The goal is "upscale concession stand," so even the BLT is made with all the finest: Benton's hickory smoked bacon, bibb lettuce, deep-red tomatoes, and black pepper mayo on Tom Cat Bakery's sourdough. The vegetarian option, pictured here, somehow looks meaty with all those big hunks of roasted tomato, zucchini, and riccota on toasted Sullivan Street Bakery's stecca bread.
Other menu highlights: root beer floats, whoopie pies, marshmallow toffee chocolate cookies, and strawberry and espresso scoops from il laboratorio del gelato.
Take Central Park entrance at 81st Street and Central Park West. Follow the footpath to the Delacorte Theater.
