Last week we got our eat on while attending THE VILLAGE VOICE EIGHTH ANNUAL “CHOICE EATS” TASTING EVENT. There were so many restaurants attending and so much to chose from. Not only was there food, but we drank hard and ate dessert as well.

The companies that participated in the event and had the pleasure of feeding us were the following: The Blue Stove, Brucie, Bustan, Butter Lane, Carlo’s Bakery, Coppelia, Delaware and Hudson, Doughnut Plant, Edi & The Wolf, Egg, El Atoradero, Fay Da Bakery, Fort Defiance, Genuine, Grandaisy Bakery, Juliette, Los Tacos No 1, Luca & Bosco Ice Cream, Papa’s Kitchen, Pickle Shack, Recette, Rubirosa, Sigmund’s Pretzels, Sugar Couture, Venturo Osteria, Veselka Restaurant, Wilma Jean, Xe May Sandwich Shop, 2 Duck Goose, 606 R&D, Ample Hills Creamery, applewood, Awadh, Baz Bagel & Restaurant, Bobwhite Lunch & Supper Counter, BOOMwich, Box Kite NYC, Brooklyn Kolache Co., Butter & Scotch, Calle Dao, Casa del Chef, Casa Mono and Bar Jamon, Commerce Restaurant, The East Pole, Fletcher’s Brooklyn Barbecue, Gloria’s Carribean Cuisine, The Gorbals, Huertas, John Brown Smokehouse, King Bee, Kuma Inn, Littleneck, Luke’s Lobster, Mable’s Smokehouse, MAX, The Meatball Shop, Mexico Lindo, No. 7, The NoMad, Queens Comfort, The Queens Kickshaw, Red Hook Lobster Pound, Robicelli’s, SCRATCHbread, Spicy Pot, Tabata Noodle Restaurant, Thai Rock, and Tuome. Whew!!!

The event, which was held at the Metropolitan Pavilion was from 6pm to 10pm and I’m so glad I arrived there at a decent time because everyone was running out of food around 8pm. The good part was that there was complimentary craft beer pairings, wine and liquor beverages plus another floor dedicated just for dessert.

Now I can’t wait for The Village Voice’s next food event, which will actually be “Choice Streets”. This is a food truck event being held Tuesday, May 5th at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. If it rains the rain date will be Friday, May 8th. See you all there.
