Choice Eats 2012: We Came, We Saw, We Ate (A LOT)

Susan and Lobstah Gaga from Red Hook Lobster Pound
Is it just us or is the 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...

Tanoreen Fried Brussels Sprouts

Fried Brussels Sprouts from Tanoreen. Why don't we get out to Bay Ridge more often?

Shrimp Roll from Luke's

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

Doughnut Plant doughnuts. Just the right size so you could have more than one...

Del Posto Butterscotch Semifreddo

Hello, Butterscotch Semi-freddo from Del Posto! You were intensely delicious.

Chicken Marsala Balls from the Meatball Shop

I wish this photo did The Meatball Shop's Chicken Marsala meatballs justice. These were stew-like and hearty.

Sotto Casa Tiramisu

Rich and creamy tiramisu from Sotto Casa.

Danny Macaroons

Craving one of Danny Macaroons' salted caramel macaroons. RIGHT. NOW.

SCRATCHbread fresh mozzarella

If you ever have a chance to try fresh mozzarella from SCRATCHbread, do it. You have to do it. So good. So very good.

Robicelli's Cupcake

There are few things as pretty as a Robicelli's cupcake drizzled with honey.

Salty Honey Pie

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.

food looks pretty good, but the event looked way too packed to be enjoyable.
