Save Next Saturday for the Grub Street Food Festival


For four years now, Grub Street has introduced you to everything from Lower East Side sushi speakeasies to Yemeni upstarts in Bay Ridge. To celebrate, we’re throwing a block party! On Saturday, October 16, we’re teaming up with the Hester Street Fair, plunking some of our favorite food vendors alongside some of theirs, and bringing you a cornucopia of street eats. Patacon Pisao will motor down from Inwood to bring you Venezuelan plantain sandwiches, and Gloria’s In & Out is coming in from Crown Heights to warm your hands with piping-hot West Indian doubles. Try the new trucks you’ve heard so much about (Kelvin Slushy and Mexicue), and decide which lobster roll you dig better (Luke’s or Ditch Plains). There’ll be tacos from Cascabel; barbecue from Char No. 4, Malbon Bros, and Georgia’s Eastside; sandwiches from Cheeky, Mile End, An Choi; balkan burgers from Employees Only; baked goods from Grandaisy, Hot Blondies, Pies-N-Thighs, and Pain D’Avignon; and coffee from Kickstand to wash it all down. Check out the forty vendors below. Entry is free— just join us at the intersection of Hester and Essex anytime between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., rain or shine, and bring your appetite.
