Choice Eats Back and Bigger For Second Year

With less than a month to go until the big day, the line-up for the Village Voice’s Choice Eats event is almost completely solidified- and if you haven’t gotten your tickets yet, what are you waiting for?!?! A Midtown Lunchers dream, the event features over 50 (not too fancy) restaurants from all five boroughs, hand picked by Robert Sietsema & Sarah DiGregorio.  Just like last year, Midtown Lunch is only represented by Margon (sadly none of the chaat places written about in the Voice are participating), but there are a few honorary out of bounds ML favorites like Baoguette and Tiffin Wallah. (Not to mention a bunch of places I’m personally excited for, like Momofuku Bakery & Milk Bar, Motorino, Porchetta, Barbao, Fette Sau, Nicky’s, Pinche Taqueria, and Salumeria Rosi.)

Tickets are a pretty cheap $35, and I’m sure it will sell out.  It all goes down Tuesday, March 31st from 6:30 to 9:30pm at the Armory on 26th and Lexington.  See the whole list of participating restaraunts, plus buy tickets at  Plus you can read last year’s coverage here.


  • The chaat at the 6th Ave Newstand is replaced by a pizza station.

  • I ended up getting what I think was the last ticket to the event yesterday! It would only allow me to purchase one ticket so I figured I would get one and then go back through and order the second. Unfortunately, when I went to start over, it said it was sold out! Can anyone help me out with an extra ticket?
