Need help seeking the legend of "CART"

Nick F. | Aug 31, 2005 08:36 AM

On the recommendation of this board and of the Times (I apologize, I know that's somewhat shameful to admit), I ventured uptown to the late 40s to go to Rangole, and in this respect I was not disappointed. At Rangole the food was excellent, the buffet as inexpensive as would be expected for its location and quality, and the service pleasant despite the line. However, as a freshman at NYU, I have heard whispers and muttering among the upperclassmen about a place in the upper 40s/50 on 5th or 6th Ave known only as "CART". Now the carts I'm used to as a New Yorker are the Halal Chicken Carts (which vary in quality) or the crappy Pretzel/Nut/Hot Dog Variety. However I have heard at this magical place referred to as CART, you can get platefuls and platefuls of food at ridiculous quality for astonishing prices, provided you have somewhere to eat it. Now, from my previously explorations in that area, I know that there are several carts in that area, all with different food. But I am sure there are a few in the late 40s bet. 5th and 6th, that are suited to be this place of legend. Any ideas as to the best?
