Village Voice Choice Eats 2009

Village Voice Choice Eats 2009
Tuesday March 31, 2009
6:30 – 9:30pm
The 69th Armory at Lexington Avenue
68 Lexington Ave @ 26th Street, NYC
Official Site
My post for the 2010 event
I already got my ticket, so hopefully I will see you there. I can feel the sickness coming for that day… I may have to call out of work ( I work nights ).

Same price as last year: $35. It’s a lot, but you probably will never have a sampling like this again in your life. This year, Robert Sietsema AND Sarah DiGregorio pick the restaurants to be featured at the extravaganza. Should be an interesting affair.

What am I looking forward to?
Sheep Station
Momofuku Milk Bar & Bakery
Peppa’s Jerk Chicken
Urban Rustic Garden
Nomad
Among many others…
—- What are some standouts in your mind?

Last year was great. I think I sampled every place. I was stuffed at the end. Very stuffed. Even got to meet the collaborator himself.

Here’s a link to my review of last year.

  1. It’s actually just “Urban Rustic” no “Garden” in the name, although they do have a back patio! 🙂

  2. Considering that most tasting events in the city are $100+, this event is a real deal, esp considering they include alcohol! I love that they introduced a VIP ticket this year because the line to get in was unreal last year and all the pushing/shoving/cutting in line was out of control. Let’s hope restaurants actually bring enough food this year – there were a few last year that just sucked and left an hour into things when they ran out of food – boo!

  3. […] See my review from last year. […]
