Choice Eats 2017

This year’s Village Voice‘s Choice Eats is another great food event that took place at the Metropolitan Pavilion on Friday. There’s lots of great bites provided from the fifty or so restaurants and shops like Chefs Club, Doughnut Plant, Glasserie, La Vrai Raclette, The Lucky Bee, Pinto Garden, The Black Ant, Buka, The Gander, The Handpulled Noodle, Raclette, Huertas, ilili Box, and Underwest Donuts. We really adored the plmeatates of shrimp noodles salad and spicy wontons from Mooncake Foods. Great, balanced flavors from both dishes and they were cooked very nicely. The shrimp salad was savory, a little sweet from..

Choice Eats 2016

The 9th annual Choice Eats 2016 taken place on March 11th at the Metropolitan Pavilion was another fun and food filled evening hosted by the Village Voice. 56 restaurants and bakeries were out doling their delicious fare. There was a huge Stella Artois bar in the center of the main floor, Herradura Tequila, and other craft beer and spirits to aid kicking off the weekend on a good note.

Recap of Choice Eats 2015

Steak au poivre mac & cheese by Queens Comfort This year’s Choice Eats is (finally) on a Friday and in the Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea. As its usual atmosphere, it’s festive, fun and crowded with the DJ blasting music. Over fifty participating restaurants and food and beverage vendors churning out as many food tastings as possible to quench and satiate the hungry crowds. Here’s the highlights for favorite bites of the evening: The lechon (Filipino-style roast suckling pig) by Kuma Inn is a crowd pleaser, at least if you love pork. Crispy pork skin with a nice layer of fat..

Recap of Choice Eats 2014

Last night was the 7th Annual Choice Eats by Village Voice. This year they moved to a much larger, brighter location despite being further downtown on the edges of the Lower East Side/Chinatown area. This colossal food event has a nice assortment from delicious ethnic eats that would warm your bones while waiting on line outside yesterday like the turkey dandan simmering in that chili broth seen above from Spicy Bampa to sophisticated yet unique squid dish from The Pines (seen below the simmering pot photo). There were also plenty of booze that most attendees who came to Choice Eats..

Choice Eats 2013

Italian style braised beef sandwich & Red Wine Marinated Egg at VIP Preview Last night’s 6th annual Choice Eats 2013 taken place in the 69th Armory was an intense food fest featuring over fifty (50) restaurants, bakeries, and other food vendors who were in Village Voice’s “Fork in the Road.” Since there’s so many to choose and remember after my food comatose (and possibly tipsy from the beer and spirits) state, here’s a couple of dishes I really enjoyed: (more…)

Choice Eats 2012

Last night was the 5t Annual Choice Eats 2012 with over fifty NYC-based restaurants picked by The Village Voice food critics Robert Sietsema, Lauren Shockey (who will leave her position this week) and the staff of Fork in the Road. Like last year, it’s packed, both people and food. If you did attend, you are bound to be eating at least an entire day’s worth of calories and then some. (As I’m typing this post, I’m not remotely hungry and just drinking my morning manual drip cups of coffee.) Some restaurants are familiar faces (e.g. The Meatball Shop, Spicy Bampa,..

Choice Eats 2011 Recap

Last night The Village Voice‘s Choice Eats 2011 was out in full force at the 68th Armory. About 70 restaurants and savory offerings were represented and 12 sweets, from boroughs of NYC. It’s fun and the amount of food offered here can certainly fill you up for two meals. Red Hook Lobster Pound: Shrimp Rolls Highlights of this event were the Red Hook Lobster Pound‘s shrimp rolls. These shrimp rolls were phenomenal. Warm, lightly toasted rolls stuffed with lots of shrimp. It helps they dressed it light before it gets too overwhelming. Del Posto’s desserts I loved Del Posto‘s desserts..
