One of four food trucks at Tavern on the Green has served its last customer.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Ladle of Love, a Westchester-based soup and sandwich shop, is terminating its contract with New York City's parks department.

Owners say they could not afford the $100,000 annual fee and were unable to make money year round.

The food trucks are part of tavern's transformation from one of the nation's highest-grossing restaurants into a visitor's center and gift shop.
