The Fifth Annual Taste of the Seaport is a combination food festival and school fundraiser, with Seaport restaurants the food to support neighborhood schools. Hurricane Sandy hit the Seaport hard, so this event celebrates the rebuilding, along with tasty bites and family-friendly entertainment.
More than two dozen restaurants and cafes are participating, including several shut down for a year or more by the super storm, such as Nelson Blue, Keg 229 and Paris Cafe. The newly-opened Ambrose Hall bar is participating for the first time this year.
Taste of the Seaport raises funds for music, art and physical education programs for local elementary public schools, Spruce Street School and, the Peck Slip School, currently housed in temporary quarters while its permanent South Street Seaport building is under construction.
The day-long festival is 11 AM to 4 PM on Saturday, October 18th, outdoors along Front Street, between Peck Slip and Beekman Street.
Tickets are $35 for five tastes or $120 for a family pack of 20 tastes purchased in advance online, and you also get to avoid the lines for day-of ticket purchases, and save $5 per ticket.
