New York Taste, our favorite food event of the year, is coming up on Monday, November 2. Tickets are still available, but we've secured VIP access for one lucky Grub Street reader and a guest. (VIPs enter the event one hour before the rabble.) We're excited to sample bites from some 40 restaurants invited by culinary editor Gillian Duffy, including Marea, Aldea, and Abe & Arthur's. Read on to learn how to win tickets!
RULES: In an e-mail, tell us what bite you would serve from your own cooking repertoire at New York Taste. Genuine ability has little to do with it — one of the best bites we make involves only red potatoes, butter, and dry Italian dressing. Briefly describe the bite and what makes it so delicious. Our favorite entry will win a pair of VIP tickets (valued at $250 each). Entries must be received by 5 p.m. on Thursday, October 29. We'll announce the winner on Friday. Need some inspiration?
