Taste of the Lower East Side was hosted tonight by Grand St. Settlement, which raises funds for the community’s programs and services.  This is one of New York City’s most highly anticipated tasting events because of the partnership between the neighborhoods local eateries. This was a great event to bring food lovers together and show support by donating to the less fortunate families in the Lower East Side.
