More than 4 dozen Bushwick restaurants, bars, shops and businesses will gather at the outdoor space to celebrate the neighborhood’s vibrant culinary life while offering tastes of their food and drink. Representing a diverse cross-section of Bushwick’s culinary scene, participants include the new celebrated Caribbean-American BBQ spot Sally Roots; a veritable “battle of the Tony’s” with slices from Knickerbocker Ave favorites Tony’s Pizza and Tony’s Pizzeria & Restaurant; Bushwick’s very own dumpling factory Chef One; new brews from the Kings County Brewers Collective, and returning favorites such as Michelin-starred Faro, FINE & RAW Chocolate Factory, Montana’s Trail House, Tortilleria Mexicana Los Hermanos, Bushwick-brewed Bruce Cost Ginger Beer, innovative brewery Braven Brewing Company and much more. The After Party will be hosted by Syndicated Bar • Theater • Kitchen with drink specials immediately following the event.

All proceeds from the event benefit the neighborhood’s OBIE Award-winning non-profit theater The Bushwick Starr.
