ANNADALE — Diners will be able to sample dishes from dozens of eateries in three South Shore neighborhoods this weekend, with a trolley to shuttle them around.
The first "Taste of the Town" restaurant crawl, hosted by the South Shore Business Improvement District and Councilman Joe Borelli, will offer unique food and drinks from 23 spots in Annadale, Eltingville and Great Kills on Sunday, organizers said.
"This event is not only going to highlight the beauty of our towns, but also showcase the great restaurants and businesses we have here on the South Shore," Borelli said in a statement.
The $15 in advance, $20 day-of ticket gives diners the ability to sample food from spots like Alfonso's Pastry Shoppe, La Iguana Azul, Campania, Joyce's Tavern and Il Sogno from 1 to 6 p.m.
The BID plans to have two trolleys running nonstop to shuttle eaters between neighborhoods all day. Organizers also encouraged people to use their own cars or the nearby Staten Island Shore Railroad to visit the different spots.
Attendees can also vote for their favorite location in the crawl, and the restaurant with the most will get a "Best of the BID Award" at the end of the event, organizers said.
Guests will be able to check in at the Richmond County Savings Bank in each of the neighborhoods, where they'll get a map of participating locations.
This will be the first crawl hosted by the BID, which launched in 2015.
"We’ve held some great events on the South Shore, but this one is going to be truly special,” said Gary Fleming, owner of Emerald Studios and President of the BID.
Aside from hosting events, the BID also spent $10,000 last to outfit "hot spots" with security cameras to make the neighborhoods safer.
