Food trucks to find new home at Syracuse warehouse-turned-beer garden

Renderings of what Harvey's Garden will look like show a place for food trucks to set up and plenty of outdoor gathering space.

A first-of-its-kind eatery coming to Syracuse aims to bring community members together over good food and beer. The upcoming Harvey’s Garden will turn an old warehouse on East Water Street into a food truck park and beer garden.

The idea comes from Micheal Greene, also a Syracuse common councilor, who was inspired by his visit to Rayback Collective in Boulder, Colorado.

“I took that idea and put a Syracuse spin on it and came up with Harvey’s Garden,” Greene said.

He said the goal is to create a gathering space that features revolving culinary options.

“In my travels throughout the community, we don’t always have a place where people of all different walks of life can come together. I thought that was a hole that was missing in our community so I created it," said Greene, who is partnering with the Syracuse Food Truck Association.

Popular food trucks such as Birdsong Cafe, Limp Lizard and Toss & Fire Wood Fired Pizza are expected to serve customers at the re-purposed warehouse, but food options will vary in flavor and cost.

"There'll be different price points, different cuisines, different ethnic cuisines. So almost anyone can come here and find something that they personally like, and they'll feel comfortable here," Greene said.

The site will host three food trucks at a time, which will be shared online.

The Jordan Supply warehouse will be transformed into a food truck park and self-serve beer hall.

It will also include self-serve beer taps that will be operated with a gift card a customer buys from a bartender. They'll have to present ID at the time of purchase and can only buy two beers at a time.

Greene said he wants the atmosphere to feel comfortable.

“You can come and really meet people unexpectedly here,” Greene said.

He said he hopes to also include live music and lawn games at the space, which he hopes to open by the fall.
