A Food Event Midtown Lunch’ers Can Totally Get Behind…
Finally, we cheap-eats hounds have a tasting event we can call our own! Counter Culture columnist, hidden food gem guru and Midtown Lunch hero Robert Sietsema from the Village Voice, has hand picked a ton of eclectic restaurants from all 5 boroughs, for a new tasting event called Choice Eats. Sponsored by the Village Voice, it all goes down on March 11th at the Puck Building downtown, and costs an unbelievably cheap $25 in advance for the opportunity to sample food from over 30 different ethnic restaurants.
Margon(Midtown Lunch Readers’ Poll Choice for Best Latin Food) will be in attendance, as will honorary Midtown Lunch, Tiffin Wallah (if only it was a few blocks farther North). Plus, I’m pretty sure Albert’s Mofongo House, located in Inwood, is connected in some way to the International Food House Buffet on 35th btw. 7+8th.
A complete list of participating restaurants, after the jump…
Albert’s Mofongo House
El Anzuelo Fino
La Maison Du Couscous
Peppa’s Jerk Chicken
Queen of Sheba
Xunta Tapas Bar
Yeti of Hieizan
The list is subject to change, but they say many more places will be added between now and the event. For $25, I’m guessing this one is going to sell out pretty quickly. For more info go to http://www.choice-eats.com/
