Business Association to Host 10th Annual Taste of Bayside on Jan. 23

Attendees will be able to sample food from as many as 25 local eateries.

Northeast Queens residents will be able to get a savory sampling of the best their local eateries have to offer at the 10th annual Taste of Bayside on Jan. 23.

The event, which is held by the Bayside Business Association, will take place from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Adria Hotel and Conference Center, which is located at 221-17 Northern Blvd.

Attendees can pay $30 in advance for tickets or $35 at the door for a vast sampling of food and beverages.

“We’re showcasing the wonderful restaurants in Bayside,” said Judith Limpert, president of the Bayside Business Association. “They typically bring their signature dishes. It’s a good price. For $30, you get to taste a good sampling of our local restaurants.”

Limpert said attendees will be able to get sizable portions from eateries serving Italian, Spanish, Mexican, American, Indian and Greek cuisine.

And she said the event, which is now in its 10th year, is a great way to meet local business owners.

“It’s a great night of networking,” she said. “The event has grown from about 100 people to 400 people. This year, we’re spreading out into three rooms. It’s gotten crowded.”

Restaurants that have already agreed to participate include Bare Burger, Bourbon Street, Cascarino’s, Marbella, Papazzio, Tequila Sunrise and White Castle.

But Limpert said more would sign on as the event nears. Typically, as many as 20 to 25 vendors participate.

Desserts at the event will be offered by Francis Lewis Pastry Shop and Maggie Moo’s.

Beverage vendors include Manhattan Beer, Angry Orchard, Curious Traveler, Primo Vodka, Cacao Prieto and Riazul Tequila.

not worth the money.

Last year I understand that Habana Cigars was a participant and I heard they might be there again this year. Tobacco products and the ability to taste good food do not mix and the Taste of Bayside is sending the wrong message if they continue to invite this vendor. Customers attend this event to sample many of the food vendors in Bayside, however, Habana is not permitted by law to allow the same sampling due to its products proven to cause cancer and other diseases.
