One of our all-time favorite areas of the city is the historic South Street Seaport. It is a gem that we still don’t think many Manhattanites and visitors know about, even though it is a quick 5 minute walk from the Fulton Street subway stop. On October 21st, this area and parts of the Financial District’s best of the best of food and beverage will be celebrated with the 8th annual Taste of the Seaport!
Some of the best restaurants are participating, including ones that we have written about for Manhattan Digest in the past! What’s even better is that proceeds from the event benefit arts and enrichment programs at two public elementary schools, PS 343 Peck Slip School and PS 397 Spruce Street School.
Some of the major talent at this event include mixologist Adam Seger, who helped open up The Tuck Room. The Tuck Room happens to be one of our favorite spots we have reviewed as of recent at Manhattan Digest, and rightfully so. They recently hosted pop superstar Fergie for an exclusive listening party of her new album and even created a “Fergie” themed menu full of delicious burgers and fries.
One of the other big talents who will be there is Executive Chef Raymond Weber of CUT by Wolfgang Puck. Some of the big restaurants that are participating include Broadstone Bar & Kitchen (which we’ve reviewed as well), Clinton Hall, Keste Pizza & Vino and for the sweet side… Insomnia Cookies.
The entertainment side, called KidZone, is sponsored by Weill Cornell Medicine and New York-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital, and will feature a ton of great acts from The Crafty Kids, Flip’N’Cheek Classic Games and so much more. This is definitely a fun event that is worth checking out this weekend!
