Essex Street Market To Hold Tasting Event and After Party
The Essex Street Market will soon present foodies with a veritable smorgasbord, by way of a tasting event and after party. Local vendors are lined up to showcase their finest, through unlimited bites and bevs. The event will also showcase Celeb Chef Brooks Headley of Del Posto, who will cook some tasty bits made exclusively from Essex Street Market vendor ingredients. After that, you and your food coma can roll on over to the dj’ed after party at the Essex Restaurant.
It seems that the considerable tasting events around New York often leave a bitter taste in the mouth; supply never satisfies demand and all that. Here’s hoping that the hosts, Time Out New York and the Lower East Side Business Improvement District, have figured out a happy medium that isn’t building capacity, and that attendees know “tasting” isn’t synonymous with “all-you-can-eat-buffet.”
The night of sampling is slated for February 20, 7 – 9:30pm, with the after party rocking from 9:30 til
the break of dawn close. Sorry kiddos, the event event is 21+. You can grab tickets ($30) at Time Out.
