Village Voice's Choice Eats getting tastier and tastier? We hit up the 5th Annual event at the Lexington Armory last week and here are some of our favorite bites...
Fried Brussels Sprouts from Tanoreen. Why don't we get out to Bay Ridge more often?
Shrimp Roll from Luke's. Tender, sweet Maine shrimp, toasted Freihofer bun...need we say more? This was worth braving the line for a second helping.
Doughnut Plant doughnuts. Just the right size so you could have more than one...
Hello, Butterscotch Semi-freddo from Del Posto! You were intensely delicious.
I wish this photo did The Meatball Shop's Chicken Marsala meatballs justice. These were stew-like and hearty.
Rich and creamy tiramisu from Sotto Casa.
Craving one of Danny Macaroons' salted caramel macaroons. RIGHT. NOW.
If you ever have a chance to try fresh mozzarella from SCRATCHbread, do it. You have to do it. So good. So very good.
There are few things as pretty as a Robicelli's cupcake drizzled with honey.
We had a minor panic attack when we didn't spot our beloved Four & Twenty Blackbirds. Fortunately we found them in the VIP lougue area serving up their Salty Honey Pie. Mmmm. Salty, sweet and just generally goooood.
If you missed out on Choice Eats, I'm sorry to tell you that Choice Streets (on the INTREPID, yes, that Intrepid) has just sold out. Next year, keep tabs on the events by following @ChoiceEats.
