Hungry for Harvest in the Square

by | Aug 14, 2017 | Coming Up, Dining, Events

Good news, foodie friends! This year’s Harvest in the Square looks to be a tasty one.

Today, the Union Square Partnership unveiled the exclusive lineup of restaurants for its 22nd annual food festival in Union Square Park.

The festival returns on Thursday, September 14th for a day of culinary treats in all shapes and forms. Everything over savory dishes and sweet desserts from 50 of the area’s hottest spots to wonderful wines and boss brews from wineries and microbreweries in New York State.

The popular restaurants will offer tastings of signature dishes, featuring fresh produce from the Union Square Greenmarket, and serve them with carefully selected beverages from the wineries, microbreweries and other beverage companies.

The long list of participating restaurants reads tried-and-true favorites such as Breads Bakery, Blue Water Grill and Rosa Mexicano, to name a few, as well as newcomers like Nur, Ando and Salt & Straw. Is your mouth watering yet?

Gadi Peleg, owner of both Breads Bakery and Nur, will serve as Restaurant Chair of this year’s event.

“I start my day at Breads Bakery, cherishing my walk back and forth to Nur several times a day. I always walk through the market, saying hello to my favorite farmers, other restaurateurs and chefs. The stretch of Broadway, just north of Union Square Park, feels like a small town,” said Peleg.

“The Union Square Partnership’s Annual Harvest in the Square brings together these incredible eateries and chefs which make up this neighborhood for a wonderful evening, and I am always proud to be part of this exceptional event,” he added.

As for quenching your thirst, you’ll find offerings from Cantina Frentana, Warwick Valley Winery and Irving Farm as well as many more.

All proceeds of the annual celebration will support the Union Square Partnership’s work to beautify, improve and program Union Square Park. For more information on the event, learning more about the sponsors and for tickets, go to Harvest in the Square’s website.
