Miscellaneous Whole Foods on Bowery
A celebration of food featuring the gods and goddesses of the culinary world, this fest features the likes of TV chefs Alice Waters, Bobby Flay, Lidia Bastianich, Gordon Ramsay, Giada Laurentiis, and Rachel Ray along with fun events and panel discussions allowing you to get up close and personal with your favorite food makers and some top notch food. Those looking for good and inexpensive Italian food should most definitely check out Supper. Do yourself a favor and try the “Priest Stranglers” pasta with Marinara and soft Ricotta di Pecora cheese. A good nearby bar is 2A. With two floors of windows, it’s great for watching the remaining hipsters who can still afford to live in the city pass by. If all your dinner/drink plans fail and you need an all-in-one, the Whole Foods on Houston Street is your upscale go-to-grocery store for dinner and snacks.
