The city’s Parks Department is looking for restaurant vendor proposals for the kiosk at the corner of East First Street and First Avenue, according to DNAinfo. Veselka, the Ukrainian restaurant that has occupied the space for the past five years, may be moving out when its contract runs out in June. The Parks Department has said that the ideal eatery will be affordable and will “incorporate ethnically diverse and/or healthy food choices, such as salads, fresh fruit, yogurt, nuts, granola bars, protein bars, bottled water, juices, smoothies, etc.” Bids are due by March 4.
