Tickets are now on sale for the 2015 Taste of Sunnyside.
The event, organized by the Sunnyside Shines Business Improvement District, will feature more than 26 restaurants and will once again take place under the block-long tent on Queens Blvd (between 45th and 46th Streets) under the elevated 7 train.
The event, scheduled for May 19, will feature food and drink from Sunnyside’s diverse range of restaurants and attendees will be able to sample cuisine from each participating restaurant.
This will be the fifth Taste of Sunnyside, the second to be held outdoors under the big tent.
“Last year’s event exceeded our wildest expectations and we’re excited to be back under the 7 train again to sample all this delicious food,” said Rachel Thieme, executive director of Sunnyside Shines.
Given the diversity of neighborhood restaurants, the selections are likely to be vast. For example, there will be Peruvian food from Los Pollos Restaurant, Italian from Venturo Osteria and modern American from Salt & Fat.
The Taste of Sunnyside has traditionally been the BID’s most popular event.
“Bringing all the flavors of Sunnyside into one visible food festival is an amazing opportunity for local residents and visitors alike to discover their new favorite restaurant,” Thieme said. She added that it is also “a great way to help promote Sunnyside as a restaurant destination.
