Time has come once again to prep for Choice Eats, our annual tasting event that brings together some of the city’s best restaurants under one roof. We have a fantastic lineup of eateries in the works, and our tickets go on sale next Wednesday — though you can get yours early for being a Fork in the Road blog reader. Just keep on reading this post.
Choice Eats moves to the Metropolitan Pavilion (125 West 18th Street) this year, but it will, as always, feature more than fifty restaurants handpicked by the Fork in the Road team. Want a sample? Here’s the list of our first eighteen confirmed participants:
2 Duck Goose
Bobwhite Lunch & Supper Counter
Butter & Scotch
The East Pole
Fletcher’s Brooklyn Barbecue
John Brown Smokehouse
You’ll get unlimited bites from these restaurants (and the rest of the restaurants that join the event) plus complimentary desserts, beer, wine, and spirits. Spring for the VIP ticket, and you’ll get to enter the event an hour early, plus you’ll receive access to the VIP lounge and take home a VIP gift bag. Early Entry Preview tickets get you in the door a half hour early. General Admission tickets are $65, Early Entry Preview tickets are $85, and VIP tickets are $99. You can also purchase Choice Eats/Choice Streets combo tickets for an additional 10 percent off. Both VIP combo tickets ($170) and GA combo tickets ($115) are available, and will offer guests entry to Choice Eats plus tickets to the Choice Streets Food Truck event at The Intrepid on May 5.
Choice Eats hits town on Friday, March 13, from 7 to 10 p.m. (doors open at 6 if you hold a VIP or Early Entry Preview ticket).
You can get pre-sale Choice Eats 2015 tickets at 10 a.m. January 7 when you enter the EATSED pre-sale code. (Tickets officially go on sale January 14.)
Part of the proceeds from the event benefits Slow Foods. Head to the Choice Eats website for more information.
We hope to see you there.
