The Lower Manhattan food scene has changed a lot in three years, which you can taste first hand when the neighborhood's food festival returns.
On Sept. 30, rain or shine, Dine Around Manhattan will gather more than 40 vendors in Chase Manhattan Plaza for a food festival showcasing the neighborhood’s restaurants and cafes. “Food Network Star” winner Aarti Sequeira will serve as the event’s celebrity guest host.
Participants — including Bobby Van's Steakhouse, Ulysses' Folk House and Num Pang Sandwich Shop — will be selling signature menu items for $3-$7. In addition to local fare, the event will welcome two visitors from Shanghai: Lubolang and Nanxiang Steamed Bun restaurants.
