The Queens Economic Development Corporation and the Queens
Tourism Council are proud to announce that the borough’s premiere food-and-networking event
— Queens Taste 2016 — will take place at the New York Hall of Science in Flushing Meadows
Corona Park on Tuesday, May 3, from 6 pm to 9 pm.
The reasons to attend this 14th annual extravaganza are as many as the ethnicities in the world’s
most diverse borough. Foodies can expect everything from creamy to crunchy, fiery to flaky, and
savory to sweet. For example, Flushing’s Mulan will prepare Modern Chinese cuisine, while
Joe’s Crab Shack in Elmhurst will serve seafood, and Rego Park’s Marani will offer kosher
delectables with a Georgian (Russian) flare. Latin participants include Sabor de Cuba in Astoria,
while the Nest in Richmond Hill will dish out Trinidadian/Guyanese treats, and Shake Shack,
which just opened a branch at Queens Center, will share its famous hamburgers.
Plus, clients of the Entrepreneur Space, a food-and-business incubator that QEDC operates in
Long Island City, will give away samples of their artisan specialties. Then there are the drinks.
The Wine Store of Forest Hills headlines a beverage group that includes locally made Queens
Courage gin and caffeinated products from Coffeed. For sweets, Sabatino Store will offer truffles
and the Paleo Factory will give out a dairy-free, gluten-free, date-sweetened chilled mouse.
Finally, there’s the networking. Most of the 700 expected attendees either live in Queens or do
business in the borough (or both). So Queens Taste 2016 provides the perfect scene to meet likeminded
individuals, talk shop, and exchange business cards in a friendly atmosphere.
