New Restaurant Will Open In A Moving Subway Car

comments

You might balk at the thought of food anywhere near the subway, but Boqueria is about to change that. The popular Manhattan eatery recently launched El Tren, a tapas restaurant inside a refurbished "Redbird" car that runs on the A line every Thursday-Sunday from 6 p.m. to 12 a.m.. On the outside, you might think it's a regular passenger train, but peep inside and that old-world marble bar will have you transported straight to the Orient-Express.Though right now it's strictly B.Y.O.B,, the moving eatery has an informal "don't ask, don't tell," policy, meaning your hip flask will pass without comment. Also on tap? A revolutionary air filtration system that means you won't have to smell the person next to you. There's also a small lounge area in the back of the car, meaning that now you have no excuse not to ask that hottie you see on your commute every day for a bite to eat. You'd be a strap-hanging fool not to check it out. (The Rundown)
