At New Taste in 2012, Caffe Storico served chilled spaghetti tossed with cauliflower sauce and topped with caviar, bookended with a meaty clam on the end of a fork.
The New Taste of the Upper West Side, the largest local food festival, kicks off on Thursday, and there are still tickets available for each of the three nights.
New Taste features more than 80 local chefs, including leaders of restaurants like The Meatball Shop that have yet to open. Drinks are also plentiful. The event benefits the Columbus Avenue Business Improvement District, Wellness in the Schools, and the Theodore Roosevelt Park fund.
The festival will include three events — a cocktail fundraiser in Theodore Roosevelt Park on Thursday, May 29, and two large food sampling events on Friday, May 30 and Saturday, May 31 in the playground on 77th and Columbus. We first wrote about it a couple of months ago. General admission ticket prices range from $105 to $150.
