The Taste of LIC is This Tuesday! Check out more than 50 restaurants!

For the ninth year in a row, the Taste of LIC food festival is taking over the waterfront at Gantry Plaza State Park, located at 49th Avenue and Center Boulevard. The event starts a 5;30 pm on June 3rd, and is ticket only! Online sales have closed, but you can by tickets at the door starting at 4:30.

The event is always a great time, and it’s hosted annually by The Chocolate Theatre Factory, a non-profit theater company. The proceeds from the event go to the organization, and help put on their events throughout the year – so everybody wins. You get amazing food, and they get to keep putting on phenomenal shows and events.

The master of ceremonies is Jimmy Van Bramer, and there’s a list of honored guests including Borough President Melinda Katz, State Senator Michael Gianaris, and State Assemblywoman Catherine Nolan.

The line-up of restaurants is HUGE, and we’ll include a full list with links below, so you can check out everyone that’s going to be there! Here’s some of the restaurants who are participating, and who’s food we love. We’re excited to see how they’ll be translating their sit-down meals into festival friendly choices!
