Village Voice: Choice Eats 2009

Unlimited food & open bar (wine, beer, sodas) for $35 in Manhattan . That should be enough to sell it to anyone. To top it off, the food is a unique collection of The Village Voice picks from all the boroughs.

Here is the official text from the Village Voice:

Featuring handpicked restaurants from Robert Sietsema’s Counter Culture AND Sarah DiGregorio’s Fork in the Road.

In recognition of the tantalizing and eclectic cuisine featured by resident food critics, Robert Sietsema and Sarah DiGregorio, The Village Voice is proud to present our second annual Choice Eats tasting event. We have scaled New York’s eclectic culinary landscape to bring together Robert’s and Sarah’s tastiest picks from years of unearthing the five borough’s best-kept secrets.

Set amid the backdrop of the historic 69th Armory on Lexington Avenue, guests will be invited to sample delicious cuisines that would otherwise require days of travel. Featuring over 50 restaurants, and representing foods from all nations, this is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for Voice readers to treat their taste buds to a trip around the world.

I went last year and enjoyed it immensely. While some of them clearly didn’t bring the best they had to offer for the event, some were absolutely delicious and I am wondering why I still haven’t had time to pay them a visit. There are a couple repeats from last year, but plenty of new places that have opened up since recently as well. I have a post on one of them, Top Cafe Tibet, and been to a few others like Mercadito & Back Forty and haven’t had a chance to write about them yet.

The price this year went up from $25 to $35 but it is still a great deal and a portion of the proceeds will go to a City Harvest.

Tickets go on sale tonight at midnight.

For more details and the official list, check out the official page.

The proceeds are actually going to a Slow Food program called “Harvest Time”…not City Harvest. The Slow Food program helps raise awareness of nutrition in school districts by teaching kids about good, clean, healthy fare. They have also organized farmers markets on the school grounds in places like Harlem and Marcy.

Sorry, my mistake. I saw “Harvest” and automatically assumed “City Harvest”. Thanks for correction!
