"Taste of Tribeca" - what restaurants should I pick to sample from?
We are going to the Taste of Tribeca Festival tomorrow. It is a benefit for two public schools. I am looking forward to a day with my husband and son and my best friend's family, enjoying the beautiful weather, music, art, kids activites, etc. But, mostly I am looking for the opportunity to try food from some restaurants that I have not and likely won't be able to have a meal at in the near future. The basic ticket includes a tasting card, allowing six "tastes" for $50. My husband and I will get a total of twelve tastes (we are hoping to be able to try as many as possible, so we will share each taste), and we will share a bit of ours with our two year old. I suppose we can buy an extra ticket which will allow us six more tastes, but I think we will stick to twelve. I have no idea what a "taste" consists of, but I hope each is at least a small appetizer-like portion. If anyone knows what you do get, I would appreciate the info. Here is a list of the participating restaurants. If you could only choose tastes from 6-12 places, what would you pick? I want to make the most of the opportunity!
Oh, I am not too concerned with bakery selections - unless you think they are out of this world. A variet of savory choices is my preference.
