Village Voice Choice Eats and I swear the event gets better and better each year. Going into the event I was naturally looking forward to nibbles from some old favorites on the list: Ample Hills Creamery, Danny Macaroons, Del Posto, Jimmy's No. 43, La Newyorkina, Liddabit Sweets, Luke's Lobster, Ovelia Psistaria, Peanut Butter & Co., Robicelli's, and SCRATCHbread among others. On numbers alone this year exceeded past years with a record-breaking 86 restaurants participating. 86! Here are some of my favorite bites....
@ChoiceEats on twitter. All throughout the day they were tweeting mini previews of what would be served. That's how I found out that Kuma Inn was bringing lechon (whole roasted pig!). With that extra bit of intel, I hit Kuma Inn's table early on before the lines got too long and before they ran out of piggy.
If you missed out on Choice Eats, tickets for the second annual Choice Streets (on the INTREPID, yes, that Intrepid) are on sale. But don't delay. They sold out super early last year. Next year, keep tabs on the events by following @ChoiceEats.
