Food and drink table service may be coming to the pedestrian plazas in New York City's Times Square this summer.
The Times Square Alliance on Tuesday issued a request for proposals from area restaurants and vendors to take orders and serve food to people seated at the 100 tables and chairs in the car-free zone.
The business improvement district says up to five vendors will be issued contracts.
Proceeds from the vendor sales will go to the alliance for maintenance and security of the car-free area.
Alliance president Tim Tompkins says the nonprofit is constantly thinking of how to make the Broadway pedestrian plazas a great urban space.
The deadline for proposals is April 15.
