Despite the fact that Cinco De Mayo is a Mexican holiday, that doesn’t mean you can’t eat your heart out right? Â Save some room for an eating tour being held by MOCA (Museum of Chinese America). Â It’ll feature the food establishments in Chinatown that have made a mark on NYC’s food culture. Â Did I also mention that there’s going to be a wine tasting to end off a great event?
Â That’s right – take a look at the description and vendors that are participating:
“Reserve your spot here:Â https://mocanyc.obsres.
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.
