This Week in New York Insider's Guide to Arts & Culture in New York City Since 2001




Multiple locations
Tickets go on sale Monday, June 23, at midnight
Festival runs October 16-19, $20-$300

Tickets go on sale to the general public for the feeding frenzy that is the New York City Wine & Food Festival on Monday, June 23, at midnight, and you better not wait if you want to get in to the coolest culinary events, which sell out extremely quickly. (In fact, the American Express presale has resulted in six sold-out programs already.) For four days, dozens of chefs and food celebrities will be serving special meals and mingling with gourmands at seminars, classes, late-night parties, intimate dinners, walk-around tastings, and demonstrations. Below are ten highlights from the more than one hundred events, which range in price from $20 to $300.
