Categories: Events

Thumbnail image for cidercorn.jpg
There are too few places in this city where you can nurse along a budding cider obsession, which makes us incredibly grateful for The Queens Kickshaw (40-17 Broadway, Astoria, 718-777-0913). Owners Ben Sandler and Jennifer Lim launched the place with grilled cheese, good coffee, and nice beer, but they've since grown into a full restaurant that has one of the best cider collections in town.

The Kickshaw is celebrating summer ciders this week, and in addition to pouring six new ciders on tap -- plus myriad rare ciders in bottle -- the restaurant threw a pair of cider pairing dinners showcasing the work of new chef Kenji Hurlburt.

It's been eight years since the New York City Wine & Food Festival first convened, and in that time, it's established its unique place on the festival circuit, offering a collection of more than 150 events that range from big, pop culture gatherings to small intimate dinners.

"If you don't find an event in your budget or to your liking, then you're looking at the wrong website," he says.

This year will be no exception, he says, and as of today, you can start purchasing tickets.

Le Fooding hits the Rockaways
Since making its first appearance in New York City four years ago, Le Fooding, France's renegade answer to the Michelin Guide, has hosted cheeky celebrations of the cutting edge of the dining scene, spotlighting innovative chefs and restaurateurs while pushing them out of their comfort zones via themed parties like the round-the-clock pop-up The Exquisite Corpse and last year's Time Mach'Inn, a look back at the contributions of the previous three eras of food. This summer, Le Fooding heads to the Rockaways -- highlighting the explosive nature of the restaurant industry out that way -- where it will host a three-day shoreside pop-up called Sanpellegrino Fruitstock at the Rockaways featuring Momofuku Milk Bar's Christina Tosi and Rockaway Taco's Andrew Field, with appearances by Ivan Ramen's Ivan Orkin, Ludo Lefebvre, and Enrique Olivera of Mexico City's Pujol.
