Don’t Just Sit There, Go to Taste of Tribeca!

If you are going to do ANYTHING ANYTHING this Saturday the 13th, its to go to Taste of Tribeca!  This downtown culinary festival was founded in 1994 by the parents of children in Tribeca’s two public elementary schools, PS 150 and PS 234 (O’s school!!!).  This festival brings together Tribeca’s best restaurants in an amazing delicious experience!

A ticket ($40 in advance) or $45 day of the event gets your 6 delicious tastes from some of downtown’s finest chefs. Just a taste of who will be there: Bouley, City Hall, Chanterelle, Marc Forgione (my latest obsession).

Seriously Go! Run! Eat! 100% the money donated will be to raise money for Tribeca’s public elementary schools!


Date Night: Restaurant MARC FORGIONE fka FORGE

Our last true date night (just by ourselves) was spent at a fabulous neighborhood restaurant called Forge and it was truly amazing.  Laid back yet absolutely delicious, the $68 Seasonal Tasting Menu was SO tasty – every course was a complete surprise in terms of the combination of flavors.  

The atmosphere, like I said, was laid back, yet elegant.  Our server was so friendly, yet not overbearing.  We are definitely coming back, and probably having The Hubby’s birthday here.  Plus, they are a supporter of The Taste of Tribeca, which is the benefit that ends all benefits, that supports PS 234 and PS 150 here in Tribeca.  Which makes Forge even better in my book!

p.s. Starting in May, they’ll have a family-friendly brunch menu, which will make this date night restaurant to a family-friendly restaurant on the weekends!
