There are thousands of amazing restaurants in New York, and it’s almost impossible to try them all, but Just Food, a nonprofit organization that strives to connect local farms with communities in need, is giving you the chance to taste bites from some of the big names in New York’s restaurant scene, such as Franny’s, Northern Spy Co., and Dirt Candy. Opting for a V.I.P. ticket also gets you an extra hour of tasting, complete with cocktails and oysters. When it comes time for dessert, be sure to hit up OddFellows Ice Cream Co., which is known for churning out wacky flavors like chorizo and buttermilk biscuit.
