Taste of the Upper West Side returns on Friday, May 15 and Saturday, May 16. The first night will have a “Grillin’ in the City” theme, with restaurants including Cafe Frida, Ostera Cotta and Bareburger focusing on summer BBQ dishes. Tickets are $99 each.
The second night, called “Best of the West”, will feature lots more restaurants, including 8th Hill, RedFarm and Maison Pickle. Tickets are $135, with VIP tickets going for $215.
Now through March 16th, tickets will also be offered at 15% off for general admission and 20% off for VIP by using the promo code EARLYBIRD at check out.
The event will honor local female chefs and business owners. Proceeds go to the Columbus Avenue Business Improvement District, a nonprofit.
