Get your taste buds ready for some delicious dishes — it’s that time of year again, the 17th annual Taste of Weehawken returns to Lincoln Harbor Tuesday, May 2.
The popular culinary event is a fundraiser for the Weehawken Library.
Money raised at the Taste has benefitted a variety of library programs, such as art exhibits, guest lectures and special events, and underwrites the cost of additional children’s programming and the acquisition of new technologies.
Guests will have the chance to try samplings at the event from Hudson County restaurants, caterers and food specialty shops, as well as wine and beer tastings from West New York‘s Giannone Wines & Liquor Company.
From Continental to Cuban, American, Italian, Indian, Japanese, Greek and Mexican, the area’s best restaurants and eateries are featured: Acappella West, Ben & Jerry’s, Los Charritos, Chart House Restaurant, Del Frisco’s Grille, El Dorado Co ee Brewers, G.P.’s, Gladis Homemade Cakes, Halifax Restaurant, HAVEN Restaurant, Houlihan’s Weehawken, The Hudson Cakery, Jack Austin’s, Karma Kafe, Kathryn’s Confections, Lorraine’s Table, Luce’s Gluten Free Artisan Breads, Mitchell’s Fish Market Restaurant & Bar, Molos Restaurant, Pier 115 Bar & Grill, Porto Leggero, Robongi/Hudson Blue, Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Shakin’ Juice bar Café, Son Cubano Restaurant-Bar, Strata Confections, Touch of Spice, El Unico de Elena, Waterside Restaurant and Catering, Weehawken High School Culinary and Pastry Arts Programs, and more.
Preview-hour tickets are $60 and includes early entrance (6:30 pm) to the event and possible door prizes. General admission ($40) ticket-holders can enter at 7:30 p.m. and they are not eligible for door prizes.
