There is always something going on in Brooklyn: It’s home of Coney Island, habitats hipsters (or Yuccies?) and brews some really good coffee. It’s where you can be a part of the underground music scene, while getting a great brewski and meal, too. And talking about brews and foods, we are going to recommend you head to Brooklyn this weekend to hang out with the cool kids at the 6th annual TASTE Williamsburg Greenpoint’s block party.
Forget your traditional Sunday brunch with your friends. This Sunday, you NEED to check out this mecca of a food party that will also have live music and so much more. With over 40 vendors going to participate, they are all waiting to give you a taste of their goodies. And trust us, everyone will be satisfied: There will be wineries, restaurants, bars and breweries. We highly recommend letting your food-freak fly at this one-day event. And don’t worry if you think you are going to be surrounded by little ones at this spot. Everyone has to be 21 and up. So, leave your little brother or sister at home, guys. Shit just got real. But let’s get even more serious for a second: Want to know another reason why you need to visit this event? All proceeds go to help build North Side Town Hall Community and Cultural Center. How cool is that?
We got to connect with 5 vendors who will be participating at TASTE Williamsburg Greenpoint. We asked them a few questions and got some visuals on some of their favorite dishes from their own places. You know, just to give you a slight tease. Check out some of the vendors below and make sure you buy your tickets for this awesome party here.
What’s your name and what position do you hold in your business?
Patti Jackson and I am the Chef Proprietor at Delaware and Hudson.
Please highlight a dish or drink off of your menu and why is it so special?
House-Smoked Trout on Buckwheat Pancakes. I love buckwheat; it’s delicious, summery fresh, and gluten-free. The trout is smoked in house and it’s always a great summer treat. It reminds me of fishing in the summers with my grandparents and cooking up some fresh rainbow trout.
What other restaurants are you excited about participating at the festival?
I’m excited to see everyone, honestly. We love the sense of community here in Williamsburg!
What do you love most about Brooklyn? What makes it so great?
The people! I love the ‘maker culture’. People here are constantly inventing and reinventing and it’s exciting to be around. I appreciate that this is a community of all types — young and old, people of all sizes and flavors. And the babies; I love the babies!
