It is that time of year again. Our days are longer, the sun is shining, and festivals start taking over NYC. One of my favorite festivals is the Taste of Times Square Food Festival. This will be my fourth year going in a row, and I have seen it grow, and evolve over the years. If you like all types of food from all over the world, then this is the event for you! All along 46th Street, between Broadway and 9th Ave, they will have booth after booth set up serving up BBQ, Italian, Cuban, French, and more from the city’s top restaurants. The serving sizes are all individual, samples sizes, ranging in price from $1-$6, enabling you to try a bunch of different cuisines for cheap. Also, as if the food wasn’t enough, they will have live music, dance classes, and performances going on that you can enjoy as you stroll along NYC’s Historic Restaurant Row. It does get crowded, so my best advice is to get there as early as you can, and stand in line for the foods that you must try, because they do run out (and if your mouth is watering for it, I can guarantee that so is everyone’s). So if you are looking for a delicious culinary adventure that starts at the crossroads of the world, the Taste of Times Square Food Festival is the place to be.
