Taste of Little Italy Returns with a Fresh New Style

| June 5, 2021 | 0 Comments

Foodies start making plans for Little Italy’s 13th Annual Taste of Little Italy.  To prepare for new guidance regarding the reopening California, Taste will now be held over two days, from 4 p.m. to 8 pm., Tuesday, June 22 and Wednesday, June 23. Attendees will be able to take in the summer air while walking through the neighborhood’s 48 square blocks, sampling mouthwatering bites from over 20+ culinary gems over both days. Each evening different restaurants will be showcased. A Taste Passportis provided to ticketholders as a guide, listing all participating restaurants, menu offerings and COVID-19 procedures.

“We are so excited to be able to bring back Taste of Little Italy for our 13th year, especially after such a difficult year,” said Chris Gomez, district manager of the Little Italy Association. “It’s an opportunity to enjoy the sights and delicious bites of Little Italy’s many eclectic and diverse restaurants, so be sure to bring your appetite. We encourage purchasing your tickets early, since the Taste of Little Italy sells out quickly.”

Upon arrival, attendees will check-in at their scheduled time in the Piazza della Famiglia where they will be given their Taste Passport. Guests will then make their way to each restaurant stop, taking away their “tastes” to enjoy at their leisure. Current participating restaurants include: Allegro, Ballast Point, Bencotto, Bobboi Natural Gelato, Buon Appetito, Caffe Italia, Civico 1845, Crack Shack, Craft & Commerce, Davanti Enoteca, Filippi’s Pizza Grotto, Farmer’s Table, Frost Me Café & Bakery, Graze by Sam, M Winehouse, Mikkeller Brewing, Monello, Mr. Moto Pizza, Nolita Hall, Not Not Tacos, Pali Wine Co., Parakeet Café, Puerto La Boca & Samsburgers.

To ensure the safest experience for everyone, attendees are asked to maintain proper physical distancing and are required to wear face masks when they aren’t sampling their “taste.” Attendees will also be split into two different time slots each day to disperse guests more evenly during event hours. After visiting every stop on their Taste Passport, guests can eat while they stroll or will be able to enjoy their bites and sips at one of the many open-air piazzas Little Italy has to offer. Tickets are priced at $50 for advance purchase, plus a small service fee, and increase to $55 one week before the event. A portion of every ticket sold goes directly back to the restaurants to provide some financial relief from the hardships they have suffered due to COVID-19.

Guests will be able to enjoy a variety of food samplings throughout Little Italy.
