Since 2011 High Line Food has offered all kinds of delicious bites to visitors of New York's railway-turned-park through a wonderful roster of food vendors. For the 2015 season I went behind the scenes at Blue Bottle Coffee,
Melt Bakery, La Newyorkina, La Sonrisa and L'Arte del Gelato to highlight how they make their delicious offerings. The series, Elevated Eats was featured on the blog of Friends of the High Line, the non-profit organization that manages the park.
