Harvest in the Square, one of New York’s oldest food events, is back for its nineteenth year on September 18 in Union Square Park. Tickets are on sale now for the autumn harvest event that brings together 40 local restaurants from the nearby neighborhoods and selections from local wineries and breweries. The proceeds go toward Union Square Partnership in the upkeep of the park, plus each restaurant that participates uses fresh produce from the famous Union Square Greenmarket.
Harvest guests can expect to see favorites like Gramercy Tavern, Union Square Café and Blue Water, as well as some new faces like The Pavilion, All'onda, The Gander, and Cevich.
“We anticipate 1200 guests to sample food and wine, and the proceeds will go toward our landscaping in the park expansion of seating areas and free community programming,” said Jennifer Falk, director of the Union Square Partnership. “The unique thing about the event is each of the restaurants’ head chefs join us and you get to see how they put their menus together.”
