2004_10_food_tasteny.jpgIf you're anything like Gothamist, there are dozens of restaurants in the city that you're dying to try, but you can never seem to get around to actually trying all of them. That's one of the reasons we love tasting events, and we particularly like them when they're for a good cause. On November 8th, New York Magazine is hosting A Taste of New York at the Puck Building to benefit City Harvest. And although we won't be able to knock off all the spots on the list that we've been keeping, we'll be able to sample the cuisine of over 40 restaurants, including 5 Ninth, Extra Virgin, Dinosaur BBQ, and rm, along with champagne, wine and cocktails galore. Tickets, which are $110, can be purchased online.

A Taste of New York, November 8th, 7-9 pm, Puck Building, 293 Lafayette at Houston St.
