Just a Taste

Bathing-suit season be damned: Three food festivals bring out their calorific wares, all on the same weekend.

  1. 1. New York Culinary Festival

    Pier 94, 54th St. at Twelfth Ave.

    Dishes from restaurants ranging from the Original Soup Nazi to WD-50, plus live music, cooking demonstrations, and—in case you pull something, perhaps—massage therapists ($20 admission; dishes from $2 to $6. May 19 to 21; visit

  2. 2. International Food Festival

    Ninth Ave. from 37th to 57th Sts.

    Tube-sock buyers, mark your calendars: The granddaddy of all street-food extravaganzas returns for its 33rd anniversary (May 20 and 21).

  3. 3. Taste of Tribeca

    Duane St. between Greenwich and Hudson Sts.

    A $45 tasting card buys you six nibbles from the 59 participating Tribeca restaurants, including Bouley and Blaue Gans. Proceeds go toward arts programs at P.S. 234 and P.S. 150 (May 20; call 866-468-7619 to purchase tickets in advance).
