Brooklyn Eats is back!

The Brooklyn Paper

Dust off your bibs and elastic-waist slacks, “Brooklyn Eats” is back! The ultimate smorgasbord celebration of the borough’s restaurant scene, which was an annual event from 1997 through 2006 at the Brooklyn Marriott in Downtown Brooklyn, has announced its 2008 date and a new locale: April 30 at Steiner Studios in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

The tasting event — which was cancelled in 2007 to be “reformatted,” according to organizers at the time — will feature 30 restaurants. This year’s edition is a departure from previous “Eats” as it will be organized by neighborhood and will include representatives from the New York City Association of Hotel Concierges and Tour Operators and the Guides Association of New York City.

At the last “Brooklyn Eats,” in September 2006, 44 of the borough’s restaurants participated and scholarships were awarded to three New York City College of Technology hospitality management students, insuring that the borough’s culinary talent continues to flourish.

“Brooklyn Eats” will be held from 6 pm to 8:30 pm on April 30 at Stage 6 at Steiner Studios in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. For information, visit
