As Eat Drink Local Week approaches–our week-long tribute to our foodshed begins Saturday, June 23rd–we wanted to introduce the sponsors that have helped us organize the event and also support local and seasonal eating year-round.
CITY GRIT Culinary Salon, host of supper club-like gatherings in a 70-seat dining room in an old school house in Nolita, has planned an elaborate 5-course meal called “Edible Eat Drink Local Feast” on Thursday, June 28th featuring four of our Eat Drink Local Week featured ingredients, plus rose wine pairings for every course.
Join us at the Fifth Annual Taste of Greenmarket on Wednesday, June 27, 2012 where we’ll feast on fancy fare inspired by the summer’s bounty at our local Greenmarkets and sip seasonal cocktails, all in honor of pioneering women in agriculture.
At Edible, we’re all about encouraging excellent food and drink experiences. That’s why folks read our magazine and subscribe to our free weekly enews.

For one special night–“Absurdity at the McKittrick Hotel”–the folks at Underground Eats turned the McKittrick Hotel into a Depression-era speakeasy, complete with flappers, period cocktails and dancing.
Last week with the help of NY1 we gave you a behind the scenes peek in the back of the N&D deli in Ridgewood, Queens, which doubles as the factory for Mama O’s Kimchee.
At this month’s sixth annual Brooklyn Uncorked, over 700 wine and food enthusiasts flooded the former Williamsburgh Savings Bank–a spectacular building with soaring ceilings that’s better known as Skylight One Hanson–to nibble and sip the various food and wine offerings from over 60 vendors.
With help from NY1, we’ve got a sneak peek video tour of the construction of the Ur-BARN being raised at the Great GoogaMooga, two-day food and music fest produced by Superfly Presents that’s taking over the Neathermead in Prospect Park.
Well, folks, you dazzled us with your creativity this time. When we asked for captions for this dairy-filled cartoon, you did better than we could have imagined. So good, in fact, we need your help choosing the best entry. Can you help us pick the winner?
Eat Drink Local Week 2012 is made possible with help from these businesses, each of which does its part to support local foodsheds.
Each year we pick one locally available ingredient, food group or beverage to highlight for each day of Eat Drink Local Week, and encourage our partnering businesses and home cooks (that’s you) to try them.
We know we just urged you to vote for The Lower East Side Tenement Museum’s project to repair its crumbling walls, but The New York Botanical Garden also needs funding to restore the waterfall in its Rock Garden, a 2.5 acre landscape built under the Works Progress Administration between 1932 and 1936. Fear not. You can vote for this great project, AND still support the one we asked you to vote for earlier.
