Eat For a Cause at 7th Annual Taste of Gramercy Neighborhood Festival

On Saturday, September 21st, from 12:00 to 4:00 PM, the 7th annual Taste of Gramercy Neighborhood event will take place at Irving Place between 17th and 18th Streets.

The ultimate food-lover’s affair, Taste of Gramercy Neighborhood features many of New York City’s top restaurants. Some of this year’s participants include favorites such as Bouley at Home, Boucherie, The Breslin, Irvington Bar and Restaurant, Taco Electrico, The Clocktower and many others.
“It’s been a true delight to see our event grow year after year,” said Alan Krevis, President of Gramercy Neighborhood Associates. “We have been fortunate enough to meet and help promote some extraordinary businesses who have sponsored our event and have seen a real impact on their growth subsequent to their participation.”

Tickets will go on sale on August 1st and will be available for purchase online at

Epicures act fast because early bird pricing ends on September 4th and last year this much-anticipated event sold out quickly!

Patrons can purchase six tastings or a full tasting which includes a tasting from each of the nearly two dozen participating restaurants. A few of the gastronomic delights available this year include lobster rolls, North Haven Oysters “double-crunch” style with pomegranate and sesame seeds and arancini with beef ragu, buffalo mozzarella and saffron.

Taste of Gramercy Neighborhood, sponsored by the Gramercy Neighborhood Associates, promotes local businesses and introduces residents of NYC to the wonderful array of food that Gramercy and its surrounding area has to offer. Every year net proceeds benefit healthy meal programs at local public schools, including PS 40 and School of the Future. In an attempt to let no food go to waste, all leftover food goes to feed the homeless via the Bowery Mission.

Taste of Gramercy Neighborhood event would not be possible without the generous support of its many sponsors, including Gramercy Neighborhood Associates, Halstead Property, Con Edison, Premier Pediatrics, Royal Orthodontics, Mount Sinai and Starry. Product Sponsors such as Breads Bakery, Irving Farm Coffee Roasters, FOCO Coconut Water, Insomnia Cookies and Kombucha will also be giving away samples for ticket holders only. Raffle items will be provided by Barry’s Bootcamp, Le Coq Rico, Kiehl’s, Sal Anthonys, Baked by Melissa, Racked, Tosler Davis and many more. For a full listing of our many participants please visit
