It was Saturday afternoon and the skies were grey but the crowd was bright and cheery because Taste of Tribeca was in full effect. With over 60 participating vendors and endless plates of delicious goodness, the streets between Greenwich Street and Hudson Street were lined with what seemed like unlimited small plates of some of the best chef’s creations in New York City.
Everything from scrumptious Steak Tartare at American Cut, to an entire ice cream cone filled with a cold creamy concoction at The Odeon, to an entire Pulled Pork Sandwich at Walker’s, there was something for everyone and then some. Some of my favorites included Grilled Chicken Wing Over Ancient Grains and Ramps by Marc Forgione, the Mini Bagels Topped With Lox by Zucker’s, and of course a perfectly prepared slice of pizza by Bar Cyrk (well, because this pizza princess can’t go anywhere without indulging in her kryptonite).
Sometimes I think I am a large man who can eat endlessly, but unfortunately that is not the case. Despite me telling my self I could do it, and wanted to do it, I simply could not sample all the tasty treats at the festival. Oh, the struggle.
