TRIBECA — Bites of some the city’s best restaurants will once again hit the street for Taste of Tribeca this year, with tickets for the 20th annual fundraiser set to go on sale starting March 1, organizers said.
More than 70 Dowtown eateries — including Laotian newcomer Khe-Yo — are slated to line Duane Street on May 17 for the outdoor food festival, which raises thousands of dollars for arts and enrichment programs at P.S. 150 and P.S. 234.
"Twenty years running is a big milestone for Taste of Tribeca," said Shari Bayer, a spokeswoman for the benefit. "Several of our restaurants, including Tribeca Grill, Duane Park Patisserie, Bouley, The Odeon, Walker's, Bubby's, and the Bubble Lounge have been with the fundraiser since the beginning."
A general tasting ticket, which buys any six “tastes” of your choosing, costs $45 if purchased in advance, or $50 the day of the event.
Premium tickets, which are only available for advance purchase, are $350, $680 or $950 for tables of two, four or six, respectively. Those tickets include personal food runners, reserved seating, designer t-shirts and a gift bag from the Taste of Tribeca sponsors.
Taste of Tribeca will take place May 17 from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Duane Street between Greenwich and Hudson streets. For more information, and ticket purchase, check out the event's website.
