On March 22, 2010, join Village Voice's food critics Robert Sietsema and Sarah Digregorio at Choice Eats, The Village Voice's Third Annual Tasting Event, and feel like food critic yourself. Carefully selected by Sietsema and DiGregorio, Choice Eats will host over 50 restaurants from over 35 nations, which include Vietnam, Italy, Brazil, Russia, Cambodia, Tunisia, and many others.
With over 50 restaurants, and a diverse variety of cuisine, I suggest that you try to limit what you eat throughout the day, because getting full after the first couple restaurants is not an option. Restaurants include Porchetta, The Vanderbilt, Motorino, Fatty Crab, Mama's Food Shop, Lucy's Whey, DuMont, Jimmy's No. 43, Egg, Agnanti Restaurant, Dirt Candy, and dozens of others. Handpicked by the two critics, their goal was to bring these culinary hidden treasures out to shine. Great food is not just found in Craft, Eleven Madison Park, and Per Se.
You are definitely going to need something to wash down all this delicious food. Choice Eats is offering complimentary beer, wine, and cocktails. Some of the sponsors include Southern Wine & Spirits, Nicolas Feuillatte, Michael Collins Irish Whiskey, Sierra Nevada, and Blue Point Brewing Company, which is why this event is only open to people 21 and older.
If you have the extra $30 to spend, splurge on the VIP ticket. VIP ticket holders are allowed into a VIP room an hour early and able to sample food from a handful of the restaurants selected to appear at Choice Eats. Complimentary beverages and other surprises await you in VIP.
