Brooklyn's food street cred is getting big, especially as Aska makes it onto Bon Appétit's best new restaurant list. Luckily for adventurous Manhattanites, Sept. 22 will bring out all the tasty foods without you having to venture to the G train (eek!).
Tickets are $45 for eight tastes and four drink tastes in the pre-sale here ($25 for four food tastes and two drink tastes), with the event taking over the Smorgasburg lot at 90 Kent Ave. at North Eighth Street. Our picks? Aska, BrisketTown, Maison Premiere, and, of course, the ever-loveable Meatball Shop. Meanwhile, New York Night Train DJ Jonathan Toubin and DJ Queen Majesty will be spinning beats for the event, while Brooklyn Brewery, Jameson Black Barrel, Jim Bean, Maker's Mark, Sauza Hornitos, Brooklyn Allied Bars and Restaurants, Broadway Stages, and CitiStorage have sponsored the event. We can only hope this means some pretty stiff cocktails. Check out the lineup below.
