If you mapped all the restaurants we wrote about in New York, you'd notice a big cluster around the Lower East Side, one of the city's most active and interesting food neighborhoods. Which is why we're pretty excited about the restaurant lineup for this year's Taste of the Lower East Side. Edi & The Wolf, Il Buco Alimentari, Il Laboratorio del Gelato, Mighty Quinn's, Russ & Daughters, wd~50, and 45 other restaurants will be serving up dishes come the 25th.
What's more, they're doing so as a fundraiser for the Grand Street Settlement, an organization that provides essential services for children, adults, and the elderly in the Lower East Side and Bushwick.
Tickets ($195, $300 for VIP) are going fast, but we're giving away two right here. To enter, tell us your favorite restaurant on the Lower East Side in the comments below by Thursday, April 18th at 5 p.m. The standard Serious Eats contest rules apply.
