More than 50 Park Slope restaurants and watering holes will convene April 10th at the Grand Prospect Hall for the legendary food-and-drink festival A TASTE OF FIFTH. The list of neighborhood hot spots participating runs the gamut from 12 new establishments (including Dram Shop, Pizza Secret and Amy Poehler’s Zula Wines) to Fifth Avenue favorites (Bogota Latin Bistro, Negril BK, Bricolage, Nunu Chocolates, Artichoke Basille’s Pizza, Maya Taqueria and Le French Tart, to name a few).
Walk into the Grand Ballroom and you can nosh on featured dishes from Fifth Avenue’s finest food spots – and then amble over to the pop-up speakeasy for free cocktails from Breuckelen Distilling. No one ever leaves hungry or thirsty.
While you eat and drink, you can catch up with the community and enjoy music from a local gypsy jazz group, the Hot Club of Flatbush, and DJ Ace, a cop at the 78th Precinct who moonlights as an old-school scratch DJ with a big following.
Since a third of your ticket ($60) goes to benefit a local non-profit of your choice, you can do a good deed while you fill yourself up.
