Event – Tastes: Meatpacking meets Chelsea JUN4 – we’ll be there

RECAP: Today a heap of Culinary Talent took over the Cobblestone Streets of the Meatpacking District by storm. We checked out all the action including the merchandise, Old Navy van, as well as stage performances by a young talent. The event lasted from 11:30am-3:00pm, with the ticket format much like Taste of TriBeCa, except here you get 6 tastes instead of 5 for $35. Beverages were $2 and not inclusive. We didn’t get to try everything, but two of our favorites included Spice Market’s Green Tea Granita w/ red currant mousse as well as Pastis’s Chicken Liver Foie Gras Mousse w/ pickled red onions. Many were on hand to partake in the festivities as blue skies provided for the perfect backdrop to some of NYC’s great restaurants. Coupled with a great cause, good times were had by all. PICS HERE
