Bikini season is coming, and I’m going to let you in on a little known secret: when you’re dining for charity, calories don’t count. So on Saturday, May 16, check your diet at the door and head downtown to Taste of TriBeCa, a food festival that benefits arts and enrichment programs at local public schools, P.S. 150 and P.S. 234. The festival features bites from more than 70 top chefs and restaurants of the neighborhood, including The Odeon, Nobu and Tribeca Grill. For its 21st year, Taste of TriBeCa is also launching a new addition to the festival: Beer Tour of TriBeCa, which allows participants to go to neighborhood watering holes and sample microbrews. We hope to see you there!
