This event goes off the menu.
At Tasting Brooklyn, enjoy dishes that you can’t get at your favorite restaurants in an event that celebrates the borough’s dynamic culinary scene.
“I myself love food, and I think Brooklyn as a community just loves food,” said Sharon Beason, organizer event, which happens tonight. “I wanted to get on the bandwagon and celebrate the food culture.”
With that, there’ll be stewed mushroom crostini from The Castello Plan in Flatbush, lamb sliders from Cobble Hill’s Clover Club, braised short rib ravioli from Fornino and Park Slope, and chicken and pork adobo from Ditmas Park’s Purple Yam.
Among the dessert options, you can’t go wrong with chocolate truffles and chocolate drizzled caramel popcorn from, of course, the Chocolate Room.
Tasting Brooklyn at DUMBO Loft (155 Water St. at Anchorage Place in DUMBO, no phone), April 5 at 6:30 pm. Tickets $45, $60 for a 5:30 pm VIP hour. For info, visit brooklynexposed.com.
