The Taste of Tribeca
If you live in Tribeca you may have received one of my tongue-in-cheek postcards depicting this scene of a local hot dog stand on the waterfront, at the corner of North Moore and West Streets in 1936 (photo: Berenice Abbott) making the point that Tribeca's industrial heritage has yielded to a more gentle residential neighborhood. It includes some of the best restaurants in the city today. This weekend, sixty-seven of them will be offering a sampling of their wares at the annual Taste of Tribeca fundraiser, supporting Arts and enrichment programs at Tribeca's two public elementary schools. Founded in 1994 by the parents of children at PS 150 and PS 234, this culinary festival brings together Tribeca’s best restaurants in an unforgettable and delicious experience. The event takes place this Saturday, May 16th and tickets can be purchased online here as well as at locations in Tribeca. For complete details, visit the Taste of Tribeca site.
Taste of Tribeca, Saturday May 16th from 11:30 AM to 3:00 PM;
