Sorry Jewish Holidays, but this weekend's upcoming New York City Wine & Food Festival is really stealing your thunder. As we've been hyping for a while now, the Food & Wine Mag-sponsored event is going on this weekend, September 29- October 2, and promises to forge a complete foodie-overhaul on our town.
In addition to the undisputably fantastic eats, the weekend also promises to bring together some of the most exciting chefs and culinary personalities from around the country. A-list eaters such as Eric Ripert, Anne Burrell, Guy Fieri, Anito Lo, Alex Guarnaschelli, Bobby Flay, Michael White and Sandra Lee are among the headlines who will be in attendance during the three day ride. Oh yea, there's also a Times Talk with Ferran Adria hidden in the middle but, sadly, it's already completely booked.
While many of the parties have been sold out for weeks, there are still tickets left for a number of events around town. Of course, we don't want to pick favorites... so check out their website for more information on purchasing and availability. And if your wallet strings are currently as stretched out as pants will be, take a look at the complimentary offerings that are starting right now.
In the meantime, you might want to lay off the noodle kugel this afternoon.
