New York City is known for many things: High Fashion, Hip Hangouts, Shopping Galore…and Fabulous Eats. I think someone once said you could make your way through NYC eating at a different restaurant every meal for a year and still not have tried them all. Of course, you might have to buy bigger pants along the way but hey…like I said, we’re known for great shopping, too.
Time Out New York invites you to celebrate your inner gourmand and honor the foodie within by joining them in their annual Feast Fest. Tempted by duck breast confit with foie gras? Beleaguered by dreams of buttermilk fried chicken bites with honey Tabasco? Dreaming of mini miso chocolate cakes? Well, get thee to the event and your dreams will materialize…on a silver platter, no less!
TONY (as we like to call em, because we roll like that) has selected 40 of its favorite restaurants to showcase some of their yummiest yums just for me! Errr…You. OK, Us. Sample signature dishes as you dish with other discerning diners at Eat Out 07. And when it comes time to wash it all down, you’ll have your pick of bars hosted from the likes of Chopin Vodka, Stella Artois, POM Tea, Starbucks and San Benedetto.
When and where is all of this fabulous noshing going on? I’m getting to that part! (If you hadn’t starved yourself for Fashion Week you might be a little more patient!)
When: 6:30-9:30pm, Monday, September 24, 2007
Where: Skylight Studios (275 Hudson St at Spring Street)
How Much: Tickets are $100 and may be purchased at TimeOutNewYork.com/eat
And since we all like to do good deeds: A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Food Bank for New York City. This is important, people. We’ve learned that the donations for NYC’s Food Bank are down this year to less than half of what they normally have and they need our help. They are out there doing the work it takes to care for the needy in our great city…and they are relying upon us to help them in any way we can.
