Only a few weeks until the New York City Wine and Food Festival, held from October 8-11. And we've saved the best tickets for last: the Grand Tasting.
Once you're inside the tasting tent at Pier 54, you'll be able to sample plates from dozens of New York's best restaurants--Aldea, Resto, Market Table, and Matsuri among them--along with just as many drinks, from Antinori Wines to Double Cross Vodka to Partida Tequila. That's an awful lot of tasting to pack into three hours, but we're guessing you'll get your fill.
Tickets are still available for the events, at $150/head, but we're giving away two pairs right here.
To enter, just answer the following question in the comments: In your fantasy New York grand tasting, whose food would you get to try?
Two winners will be chosen at random from among eligible commenters. Each will receive two tickets to the event above. All ticketholders must be 21 or older to attend. Contest will end and comments will close at 9AM ET, Wednesday, September 30, 2009. One entry per community member. The standard Serious Eats contest rules apply.
