Taste What Williamsburg and Greenpoint Have to Offer

It was the perfect way to spend a sunny Sunday: in a parking lot on the Williamsburg waterfront, hitting up one vendor booth after another, sampling morsels of pulled pork, fried chicken, mini-tacos, pasta, bruschetta, sushi, champagne ices, and more – and then washing it all down with sangrias, wine, and Brooklyn Brewery beer.

The second annual Taste Williamsburg Greenpoint at CitiStorage was a hit – and a well-organized one at that – with hundreds, if not thousands, of people from across New York coming out to celebrate many of the best dishes that restaurants in northern Brooklyn have to offer – while raising money to help build a community space, the Northside Town Hall.

Over 50 vendors representing the area’s past and present were at the feast, including popular spots such as Teddy’s Bar & Grill, Maison Premiere, Station, Café Mogador, Nita Nita, Pies ‘N’ Thighs, Cubana Social, and Crif Dogs. Asked what they loved most about the event, groups of families and friends all said they enjoyed the “eclectic” variety of food, ranging from Spike Hill’s BBQ pulled pork sliders and Bellwether’s cold fried chicken sandwich with honey mustard and sour pickles, to La Nonna’s smoked-salmon-and-cheese-wrapped bread and Gourmet Guild’s wine sorbet.
