The 4th annual Taste Williamsburg-Greenpoint Food Fest took place last Sunday at the East River State Park. Over 40 local businesses—restaurants, wine shops, artisanal food producers—showed their flags and cooking chops.
A two-day chat n’chew event, Taste Talks, was organized by the Northside Media Group (publisher of the L Magazine) and curated by Chef April Bloomfield.
