Last night’s Choice Eats tasting event went off smashingly, if we don’t say so ourselves. Yes, it was crowded, but that’s unavoidable given the allure of tasting food from 56 restaurants, representing 37 different cuisines. These restaurants are scattered across all five boroughs, so having them all in one place was a thrill. Plus, there was plenty of booze.
Here’s a look at what others thought.
Midtown Lunch laments the fact that Margon Restaurant was the only midtown respresentative, also enjoys Cheburechnaya and Tortilleria Nixtamal
Joe DiStefano, writing for The Feedbag, loved Sheep Station’s lamb sandwich, Porchetta’s porchetta and Dirt Candy’s portobello mousse
Shelbs and Cheese has a comprehensive run-down, including hits and misses. Big miss: Mama’s Food Shop’s mac and cheese. Big hit: Dirt Candy’s portobello mousse.
Kathy at A Passion for Food reportedly got around to every one of the 56 tables! She liked Peaches Market’s short ribs with grits and No. 7’s vanilla pudding with miso bananas.
Plus, B and B have a comprehensive slide show of the event on Flickr
