The Village Voice's Choice Eats 7th Annual Tasting EventBasketball City @ Pier 36 (299 South St New York, NY 10002) Map it $60
Whether you're a casual nibbler or a full-on foodie, you aren't going to want to miss this flavor-filled tasting adventure that features some of the best eats New York has to offer. For its seventh edition, Village Voice's Choice Eats leaves Murray Hill and heads downtown to Pier 36. And while the scenery may be different, ticket holders can expect the same scenario of sampling various cuisine from restaurants across the five boroughs. In total 75 of the Village Voice’s favorite eateries have signed on including Louro, Luke’s Lobster, Dirty Candy, Queens Comfort, Brooklyn Kolache Co., Charles' Country Pan Fried Chicken, and Swine. Just imagine how much it would cost you in subway fare alone if you tried to hit up all those spots in one night. And this savory bargain buffet doesn't end at the first course: desserty fare is available in the "Choice Sweets” section from sources such as Ample Hills Creamery, Doughnut Planet, Liddabit Sweets, and Grandaisy Bakery, plus complimentary beer, wine, and cocktails are poured throughout the night and indie rock band DIIV are djing. VIP tickets sold out in minutes; we suggest snatching up your general admission ticket now before they’re all gone.
