Taste of Tribeca’s tickets are now on sale online. Just a few clicks from this blog you can take advantage of the early bird special price of $40. They’ll go up to $45 soon and on the day you’ll pay $50.
So mark your calendars for Taste of Tribeca on Saturday May 19th 11.30-3pm. Your ticket buys you “tastes” from some of Tribeca’s best eateries. These “tastes” range from Walker’s famous pulled pork lunchette to Takahachi’s succulent sushi, to tacos, to ice cream, to sausages and to more mouthwatering deliciousness than you could ever imagine.
Gourmelle’s advice for getting the most out of Taste is to buy a bunch of tickets, grab a bunch of friends and try everything. That can be quite a challenge with up to 70 restaurants to choose from. As well as Walkers and Takahachi, Sarabeth’s, Marc Forgione, Max, Tribeca Treats and City Hall have already signed up to serve fabulous food on the day. Tribeca newcomer Kutsher’s, which calls itself a modern Jewish American bistro will be setting up a stall for the first time.
Taste of Tribea is the perfect opportunity to show off the neighborhood to out of town visitors. Last year’s Taste was blessed with perfect weather and Gourmelle took along a friend who flew in from Islamabad. I’bad, as Julie likes to call it, is a great place to eat curry, but doesn’t have much culinary variety. So Julie was in heaven flitting around the different taste treats. Never one to stint on life’s little pleasures, she made a bee line for all the dessert options. I hasten to add she wrapped up some of them for later - another great strategy for making the most of Taste of Tribeca.
Perhaps the best part of the day, however, is that it’s a fabulous community event. Some of the best restaurants in the city donate top notch food to raise funds for our neighborhood schools P.S.234 and P.S150. It’s a fabulous act of foodie philanthropy that plays a huge part in making the schools the vibrant, stimulating places they are.
So don’t wait, click, click to buy tickets to a great day of al fresco dining right here in Tribeca.
