A taste of Red Hook tonight

Explore the Red Hook culinary scene tonight as the Red Hook Initiative (RHI) hosts the third annual “A Taste of Red Hook” fundraiser, from 6-9 p.m. at Kidd Yellin Gallery, 133 Imlay Street.

More than 20 local restaurants have confirmed their participation, including The Good Fork, Baked, Kevin’s, Brooklyn Botanica, Calexico, Home/Made, Hope & Anchor, Defontes, Fort Defiance and Fernando Martinez, a neighborhood favorite vendor from the Red Hook soccer fields.

The best restaurants in Red Hook and vicinity will serve a sampling of the signature dishes that have made them local and critical successes. Aside from enjoying culinary delights from Red Hook restaurants, attendees also have a chance to bid on items from the silent auction such as designer clothing, accessories, signed books, gift certificates, and more.

The event is being coordinated by Roquette Catering in Red Hook. Local Red Hook musicians who regularly play at Sonny’s and other local music venues will provide the music.

All of the proceeds from the evening will go to the Red Hook Initiative, a community-based organization run by more than 50 residents of the Red Hook Houses who are working to create their own social change. RHI employs more than 30 teenagers, many of whom will be present at the event to share their work.

Tickets are $100.
