LuckyRice to Return to New York, Expand Beyond


LuckyRice, the Asian food festival that debuted in New York this year, has plans to return next year and will also expand to San Francisco and Los Angeles. Per Crain’s, the five-day Asian food fest will run from May 4 to 8.

The first festival, which attracted some 6,500 attendees, featured a roster of star chefs, including Daniel Boulud, Anthony Bourdain, Eric Ripert, and David Chang, who hosted the popular Night Market under Manhattan Bridge. That particular event will return next year, although the celebrity chef participants have yet to be announced.
