Brooklyn is entering the Food & Wine Festival circuit.
The magazine announced today it’s adding the borough to its calendar for the first time, with the Brooklyn Food & Wine Festival set for Feb. 17-19, 2017. Details are still sparse, but the three-day culinary event will bring together 150 local restaurants and shops for walk-around tastings, cooking, wine and cocktail demos, a VIP dinner at the 40/40 Club & Restaurant and afterparties with the chefs (aren’t you curious how Mario Batali gets down?)
“Brooklyn is one of the most exciting culinary destinations in the world,” says Nilou Motamed, Food & Wine Editor in Chief and a Brooklyn resident. “With access to brilliant chefs, authentic local food and ingenious tastemakers and artisans, this will be a celebration of Brooklyn’s singular contribution to the culinary zeitgeist.”
Tickets for the Brooklyn Food & Wine Festival go on sale Thursday, Oct. 20, beginning at 10 a.m. on Ticketmaster.
