In just under two weeks, on Wednesday, May 7, a fleet of the city's best food trucks will take over the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum Complex on Pier 86 (West 46th Street and Twelfth Avenue), where they'll dole out stellar tastes of their wares to the crowds. Have you purchased your ticket to Choice Streets yet? General Admission gets a taste from each truck plus unlimited booze; an Early Entry fare gets you access half an hour before the event officially starts -- which means less waiting in lines.

To further entice you -- or, perhaps, to give you a taste of what you'll be enjoying, if you've already sprung for a ticket -- we present this year's menu of tastes, which features everything from rendang chicken to shrimp rolls to ice cream sandwiches.

La Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels Now Pouring in Nolita

When Romée de Goriainoff, Olivier Bon, Pierre-Charles Cros, Xavier Padovani, and Benjamin Sormonte opened their first Experimental Cocktail Club in Paris, they were attempting to bring a bit of New York City innovation to the City of Light. "Eight years ago, there was no cocktail bar in Paris," says Sormonte. "The only cocktails you could drink were in a hotel, and usually they were a mojito or piña colada. We brought the concept of the speakeasy from New York to Paris." And later back to New York, when the partners opened an Experimental Cocktail Club here on the border of the Lower East Side and Nolita.

Now, they've brought Paris to New York with their new wine bar La Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels (249 Centre Street), which started pouring earlier this week.

With three weeks to go, they've already hit $20,000. Pizza lover and fellow group member Gabe Zimmer took time to discuss the group's origins, underrated slice shops, and the scope of the project.

Tabata Noodle Opens a Third Location in Hell's Kitchen

Thumbnail image for ramtabata1.jpg
Tabata launched as a non-descript ramen joint on one of the least picturesque corners of Hell's Kitchen, under the overpass on West 39th Street and Ninth Avenue, but it quickly garnered our favor for its unique bowls of noodle soup. Last year, a second Tabata opened just a couple of blocks away, this one specializing in grab-and-go fare and aimed at midtown office workers and Penn Station commuters.

Now, the duo becomes a trio with a third outlet at 245 West 51st Street, which will host its grand opening this Friday.
