Try delicious food, network, and learn the winners of the StartUP! Business Plan Competition!

On May 2, 2017, we expect more than 60 restaurants, beverage purveyors, and dessert makers to provide samples of their products to at least 700 attendees. It's Queens, so diversity will be on display from first bite with everything from creamy to crunchy, fiery to flaky, and savory to sweet. Astoria's Sabor de Cuba will probably offer shredded beef with plantains, while Zenon Taverna might give away haloumi and octopus. The Nest, a Guyanese/Trinidadian eatery in Richmond Hill, usually dishes out curry, jerk, and BBQ chicken, and Bayside's Bareburger should bequeath beer-braised bacon with stout onions on a mustard pretzel bun. So delicious!

Proceeds support the Queens Economic Development Corporation's ongoing efforts to attract, create, and maintain jobs in the borough through business services, neighborhood development, the Entrepreneur Space (our food-and-business incubator), and marketing attractions through the Queens Tourism Council and the It's in Queens and Discover Queens brands. As QEDC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, proceeds are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.
