A national tasting event celebrating your local restaurant community.

Taste America, presented by Capital One, is a nationwide initiative to bring together chefs, special guests, and diners from across the country to celebrate the local independent restaurants at the heart of our communities.

The walk-around tasting at Tribeca 360° will be an exciting gathering of chefs from the New York City culinary community and beyond. Food stations will be hosted by Chef Shenarri Freeman of Cadence in New York City, Chef Forough Vakili of Le Bon Nosh in Atlanta and many more. Each station’s offering will reflect the chef’s signature style and highlight the uniqueness of their restaurant and community.
