Cinco De Mayo: Eating Tour Anyone?

Taken by Vivienne Gucwa

Despite the fact that Cinco De Mayo is a Mexican holiday, that doesn’t mean you can’t eat your heart out right?  Save some room for an eating tour being held by MOCA (Museum of Chinese America).  It’ll feature the food establishments in Chinatown that have made a mark on NYC’s food culture.  Did I also mention that there’s going to be a wine tasting to end off a great event?

 That’s right – take a look at the description and vendors that are participating:

Every restaurant is a story.

There are stories of legacy: Chinatown’s sons and daughters who grow up to be entrepreneurs and restaurateurs. Stories of diversity: the flavors of China’s regional cuisines converging in New York City. And stories of evolution: a constant weaving between the classic and modern, the old and the new.

Join the Young Professionals of MOCA for “Beyond Takeout: A Culinary History Of Chinatown.”

A MOCA educator will lead you on a tour through Chinatown to learn about the past and ongoing histories of some of your favorite eateries. End the day at the Museum for a food and wine tasting while mingling with your fellow MOCA YPs, members, and friends.
