With November storming around the corner , it’s time to prep for my favorite annual feast. Yes, Thanksgiving is always a great harmonious day to spend with your love ones, stuff your face with turkey and maybe get a head start with holiday shopping. Sure I like going to Walmart and go toe to toe with hundred other shoppers but Cyber Monday is more right up my alley.
The sweetness of November usually starts of with probably the best walk around tasting event in New York. The New York Taste 2017 is surely not an event to miss.
The reason I think its one of top events. New York Magazine always has a lineup of some of the top buzzing restaurants and chefs in the city. Ticket prices are really reasonable. For the low pricing your gonna leave that venue stuffed. Always great entertainment. Get your tickets now at eventbrite.com/e/new-york-taste-tickets-37281711603.
Expect bites and sips from Greg Baxtrom of Olmstead , Paul Donnelly of Chinese Tuxedo and Kenta Goto of Bar Goto.
I hope to see all my New Yorkers subscribers on November 6th.
We are in the midst of brisk crisp weather and a over load of pumpkin spice flavoring everywhere. Oh the joys of the festive months of October. Lots of events coming up before the holiday season. Stay tuned !

In my book, one of the most solid neighborhoods in the food and drink scene is Williamsburg. So many dope spots opened up this year alone, joining some old classics. Stop all that noise, good ol’ Billy Burg is still the place to hang especially is your questing for food. Can’t hit every restaurant so I suggest you go to the Taste of Williamsburg/Greenpoint for a foodgasm .

Always a great debate. Where is the best dining neighborhood in Manhattan?
My answer probably will be Flatiron. Though pretty small in area, Flatiron is packed with some powerhouses. To get a sample of some of the best bites the city has to offer, I recommend attending Celebrate Madison Square Chefs on July 18th. Some of the featured restaurants include Cosme, Sugarfish and The Nomad. This is not to be missed. Scoop your tickets here : madisonsquarepark.org/news/cmsc-tickets
