The Queens Economic Development Corporation (QEDC) and the Queens Tourism Council will host Queens Taste 2017 at the New York Hall of Science in Flushing Meadows Corona Park on Tuesday, May 2, from 6- 9 pm.
Last year we attended Queens Taste for the first time and experienced all that the borough has to offer. This year will be no different as there will be a diverse selection of food from Cypriot, French, Georgian, Indian, Italian, Japanese, Kosher, Malaysian, Moldovan, Paraguayan, Peruvian, Puerto Rican, and Thai cuisine.
Foodies can expect everything from crunchy to creamy, fiery to flaky, and sweet to savory. More than 60 restaurants, beverage purveyors, and dessert makers will offer samples of their products. Check out the complete list of participants. On the alcohol side, Chris Murillo, who owns the local distillery Queens Courage, will mix gin-based drinks. Four wine purveyors will pour and at least seven beer products will be on tap. Tea totalers will be able to quench their thirst with bubble tea provided by Chatime.
In addition, clients of the Entrepreneur Space, a food-and-business incubator that QEDC operates in Long Island City, will be on hand with their artisan specialties, such as gluten-free products and ethnic desserts.
