Life in the big city, and everything in between.

The Village Voice’s 4th Annual Tasting Event

In Food on March 30, 2011 at 2:55 pm

This year not only did I get to attend the Choice Eats at the Armory, but I got to participate alongside Porchetta. Handpicked restaurants from Manhattan and the surrounding boroughs that have been featured in The Village Voice, served up some pretty stellar food, as well as complimentary craft beer pairings, wine, and liquor. The Armory was packed full of great food and drinks ready to be sampled by the thousands of people that were lined up outside. You name the cuisine and it was probably there. Everything from Peruvian and Greek to Liberian and Nigerian food.

My favorite, besides the delicious pork ragu at Porchetta of course, was the ceviche I sampled from Peruvian restaurant, Coney Island Taste. Some of my other favorites included sandwiches from Nicky’s, mini arepas from Caracas Arepa Bar, and the chocolate and eggplant dish from Del Posto.

Yummy Porchetta pork ragu. It can't get any better than this.

I think we may have gone a little overboard. Our little piggy is still hangin in there.

No More Pork. We had a lot of sad faces.

Although we brought twice as much as last year, we still ran out!
