We’re pleased to tell you that one of the most delicious food events in Queens, Taste of Sunnyside, is back this year! It takes place on Tuesday, May 23, from 6:30-8:30pm (5:30pm for VIP ticket holders) at the same location as in past years—Queens Boulevard and 46th Street, under the 7 train in Sunnyside. Tickets are $40 general, $70 VIP.

Having attended in the past, I will say that the VIP tickets are pretty nice. You get to enter the event (AKA start eating and drinking) an hour early at 5:30pm, which makes maneuvering through the vendors much easier than when it gets more crowded later on. We’ve been told that tickets sold out ahead of time last year, and there are no tickets at the door.

Here’s who you can expect as far as food goes next Tuesday:

  • 43 Bar and Grill (Irish American Pub)
  • Arriba Arriba (Mexican)
