    San Francisco's Recreation and Park Department is in dire need of generating new revenue and that's good news for street food lovers.

    The City is moving forward with its plan to welcome food vendors into its parks and Tuesday a list of who will be selling what where was released.

    Golden Gate Park will become the home to mobile versions of Blue Bottle Coffee and Annie's Hot Dogs behind the band shell and Let's Be Frank would park itself in front of the Conservatory of Flowers. Annie's will also sell at Civic Center Plaza and near Spreckels Lake in Golden Gate Park.

    Justin Herman Plaza will get Let's Be Frank, La Colombe Bakery, La Cucina and Onigilly while Blue Bottle will get a second location at Mission Dolores Park, which is not going to be completely closing for renovation after all, possibly.

    Rec and Park hopes to generate $145,000 a year in revenue once the vendors are up and running by this summer. It's a small step to closing a $12.4 million shortfall.  Meanwhile Supervisor and mayoral hopeful Bevan Dufty is still looking to bring non-corporate street food vendors out of the shadows.
