Live Like the Irish: New York’s Best Food Trucks to Toast St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day 2020 is almost here and that means New York’s iconic St. Patrick’s Day parade and celebrations throughout the city. If you’re planning on “going green,” why not beat the crowds and bring N.Y.C.’s finest food trucks serving up toast-worthy beers and classic Irish cuisine right to your own St. Patrick’s Day party. 

It’s almost that time of year again when having a few pints and a slice of Shepherd’s Pie before noon is socially acceptable and there’s no better place to be on St. Patrick’s Day then New York City. But, ditch that pitcher of stale green beer and bag of green bagels and host your St. Patty’s Day party with the finest craft brews and authentic Irish fare from the most popular food (and alcohol) trucks in New York.  

St. Patricks Day



Elevate your St. Patrick’s Day and add some class to your St. Patrick’s Day event with craft beers (and Italian Prosecco, still wines, and crafted cocktails) from NYFTA member Bubbles and Brews. Whether your event is a grand affair celebrating “the luck of the Irish” or an intimate gathering to say “sláinte” (that’s “cheers” in Gaelic) with friends and family, Bubbles and Brews has two trucks to suit your needs (and budget).

The Creamsicle is a fully-restored vintage “mobile bar” offering two onboard taps ready to serve up pints of Guinness, Smithwick’s, or the Irish ales of your choice. But, if you want your private event to be the St. Patty’s Day party of the year, The Ape is your party animal on wheels. With service for up to seven drinks of your choice you have the ability to host your own Irish pub (and even a tap for some fine Irish whiskey). 

With customizable packages available, service with a smile, and even graphics that can be tailored to your St. Patrick’s Day theme, make your private event as green as a four-leaf clover with one of Bubbles and Brews vintage trucks. 


Now that your event is well-stocked with the finest Irish brews, what about some authentic eats to pair them with? NYFTA member Superlicious NYC has got you covered with made-from-scratch Irish cuisine. From freshly baked scones, to traditional fish and chips, and a classic lamb Shepherd’s Pie, Superlicious is the perfect partner for your St. Patrick’s Day event.

Their menu also includes an eclectic fusion of Pan-Asian, Mexican, Irish, and American delights that’ll satisfy the palate of all your guests. So, on top of those classic fish and chips, you can also offer up loaded Chicken Tikka fries, spiced ground beef tacos, and more. 


NYFTA has over a decade of professional food truck experience in the New York area, and knows the best food trucks and carts to select, with the best service and the highest quality food and drinks. From the moment you book your truck and create your custom menu, to the end of your private party or event, NYFTA sweats all the details and works with you every step of the way. 

So, make your St. Patrick’s Day gathering the place to be that’ll have your guests feel like they’re saying “Erin go Bragh” while kissing the Blarney Stone!
