Taste of Tribeca 2013

Jacqui and I took Henry to the annual Taste of Tribeca food festival this afternoon after returning from the Brooklyn Half Marathon. It’s a charity event that benefits the local public schools where neighborhood restaurants set up booths to serve sample-sized dishes. There are about seventy participating restaurants which offers a lot of variety to choose from and the opportunity to sample even some upscale places affordably. We were able to taste about a dozen samples ranging from unfamiliar new dishes to standbys like Duane Park Patisserie‘s warm molten chocolate cake for dessert.

Despite some rain, there was a pretty good turnout and we enjoyed ourselves.
