Our neighborhood may be small, but it is bursting with generosity towards our schools and our children. This year’s 20th anniversary edition of Taste of TriBeCa will feature over 70 local restaurants, each donating their time, resources, and culinary expertise to raise critical funds for PS 150 and PS 234.
From the buttermilk fried chicken of Dirty Bird To Go to the haute Korean cuisine at Jungsik, Taste promises a rich and eclectic range of food offerings. Italian, American, and Japanese restaurants will be most predominant, but we are also pleased to offer dishes from restaurants representing the cuisines of Mexico, India, Argentina, Laos, Ethiopia, Denmark, Spain, and China, to name just a few. So whether you tilt eastern or western, are a carnivore or herbivore, or prefer salty or sweet, we’re confident you will find more than a few dishes to please your palate. In short, there will be tastes to suit every taste.
In the coming weeks, we will be highlighting many of our participating restaurants and their dishes. Check back often, or sign up for our mailing list, like our page on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter and Instagram for the latest updates.
