Get your tickets to the Taste of the South End

TOSE, AIDS Action CommitteeThis is my favorite food tasting event in Boston. Sergio and I started attending “The Taste” nearly 20 years ago when I was working at AIDS Action and it continues to be one of my favorite charity events to attend and support.

For one night in March, AIDS Action brings together 40+ South End restaurants for a delicious evening of bite-sized servings, live cooking demonstrations, silent auction, as well as wine tastings and beer sampling. Tickets have been on sales since late last year so if you’ve yet to purchase your tickets don’t delay since the event generally sells out before the night of the event.

Taste of the South End: Tuesday, March 3, 2015

TOSE, AIDS Action, AAC, South End restaurantsI previously wrote about this fun annual tasting that raises money for the AIDS Action Committee of MA, but I wanted to give one more shout out for those of you who may have been contemplating attending but had yet to buy tickets.

Taste of the South End, Tuesday March 3, 2015

More than 40 of the neighborhood’s restaurants will share tempting bites that range from the savory to the sweet.  In addition there will be plenty to drink and entertaining cooking demonstrations from some of the neighborhood’s most admired chefs.   If you have any questions about this social South End event, feel free to reach out to me.  Otherwise, grab tickets while they last.  Here is a quick video from a Taste of the South End from a few years back.

Taste of the South End 2013

Taste of the South EndAIDS Action deserves a lot of credit for hosting another successful Taste of the South End.  I’ve attended many tasting events put on by different neighborhoods and organizations and this annual event held in the South End remains my favorite.  The number and variety of food and drink is impressive, the crowd is always friendly and the money goes to such a worthy charity.

Taste of the South EndAs usual, there were some real stand outs, my favorite was the tuna tartare with soy and ginger served on cripsy wontons from Mistral. The tuna melted in the mouth and I had all I could do not to swipe one of the platters holding a dozen or more of these treats from their table.  Additionally, Myers + Chang’s served their restaurant’s popular salmon + honeycrisp apple tartare with spicy soy, spinach and sesame crisps; mental note to order it on my next visit there.

Taste of the South EndOn the sweeter side, PICCO wowed me for the second year in a row with their “adult float” which combines a fruit flavored lambic (this year was peach) poured over either vanilla or chocolate ice cream. Also adicting was The Gallows miniature fluffernutter pies which were conveniently next to PICCO.

In addition to eating great food and getting the opportunity to chat with friends, attendees find out about changes at neighborhood restaurants.  For example, did you know Estelle’s has started serving lunch on Saturdays and Aquitaine has a newly expanded lunch menu which they offer weekdays. 

Taste of the South End: March 6, 2012

Next Tuesday is the Taste of the South End.  This event which draws 40 of the neighborhood’s restaurants and cafes to showcase some of their favorite bites and more than a few cocktails is an absolute must for Foodies. The fact that the money raised helps the AIDS Action Committee is a bonus.

As with years past, I’ll be in attendance; no doubt overeating and loving every minute of this very friendly and highly social event.  Several new restaurants will be joining the event for the first time, but I’m most interested in sampling the food from Cinquecento the new restaurant from The Aquitaine Group which will open this spring in the space previously occupied by Rocca.
