Calling all foodies and philanthropists alike Eat for a Cause is taking place on Saturday, September 21st, from 12:00 to 4:00 PM, the 7th annual Taste of Gramercy Neighborhood event will take place at Irving Place between 17th and 18th Streets. 

This is a dream for the gastronome! The Taste of Gramercy Neighborhood features many of New York City’s top restaurants. People travel from all over the world with recommendations to dine in Gramercy. This year’s participants include favorites such as Bouley at Home, Boucherie, The Breslin, Irvington Bar and Restaurant, Taco Electrico, The Clocktower and many others. A few of the gastronomic delights available this year include lobster rolls, North Haven Oysters “double-crunch” style with pomegranate and sesame seeds and arancini with beef ragu, buffalo mozzarella and saffron. 

 Every year net proceeds benefit healthy meal programs at local public schools, including PS 40 and School of the Future. In an attempt to let no food go to waste, all leftover food goes to feed the homeless via the Bowery Mission. 

Tickets are available for purchase online at 

Taste of Gramercy Neighborhood event would not be possible without the generous support of its many sponsors, including Gramercy Neighborhood Associates, Halstead Property, Con Edison, Premier Pediatrics, Royal Orthodontics, Mount Sinai and Starry.
