The Lower East Side is undoubtedly one of NYC’s top culinary destinations, and we’re providing delicious proof with this benefit class, spotlighting recent neighborhood newcomer Mexicue. (While Mexicue’s food trucks are still roaming Manhattan and Brooklyn, the latest brick-and-mortar location is on Forsyth Street.) We’ll also sample the culinary creations of Tony Limuaco, longtime LES fermenting expert and e-book author. Stop by the Culinary Center tonight and help us celebrate the fun and vibrant neighborhood we love to call home!
All proceeds go to Fourth Arts Block, a nonprofit organization that supports various arts and community groups throughout the East 4th Street Cultural District.
