Bhatti Indian Grill
Bobwhite Lunch and Supper Counter
Brooklyn Koloache
Butter & Scotch
Dirt Candy
Fletcher’s Brooklyn Barbecue
Indian Clove
Jimmy’s No. 43
Kaia Wine Bar

Red Hook Lobster Pound
The Kati Roll Company
The Meatball Shop
Xe May Sandwich Shop

We’ll have more than 60 vendors in total.

The party takes place Tuesday, March 25, from 7 to 10 p.m. at Basketball City (299 South Street). General admission tickets are $60, and they get you unlimited tastes of food and drink. Spring for VIP for $85 and you’ll get early access to the party plus other perks. Check the Choice Eats website for more details — including how you can sign up to volunteer, which gets you a free general admission ticket to our Choice Streets event later this year.
