The Mac Daddy of food markets, Smorgasburg is free to the public and happens every Saturday, rain or shine! With the Manhattan skyline in plain view, you can eat, drink and buy dozens of different delicious gourmet goods. A few tips…bring cash (the ATM line can be horrendous sometimes), wear sunscreen (with the exception of the vendors tents there is no shade), and come hungry! My favorite Smorgasburg vendors include Baby Got Back Ribs, Danny Macaroons, Brooklyn Soda Works, First Prize Pies, Liddabit Sweets, People’s Pops, Tin Mustard and Solber Pupusas!
Join Next Food Network Star and Chopped All Stars Chef Michael Proietti for a good old fashioned clam bake on City Island (where the Bronx meets New England)!
Spend the day on a private beach learning how to make a classic clam bake (which I first experienced last year), eating said meal of clams, mussels, oysters, crab, potatoes, and corn on the cob, not to mention the delicious, hot clam juice, and drinking (event is BYOB- but iced tea and water will be provided) on this magical summer day! Tickets are $75 and the event is limited to 12 people, as of this morning 6 tickets remain! For more information on the event, Chef Michael and to score tickets click here!
