What happens when some of the hottest names connected to the Huntington culinary scene set up shop at Appliance World and invite the area's most ardent local foodies to sample the tasty bites and creative cocktails they've concocted?
Over 200 guests show up ready and willing to indulge in a wild array of delicious flavors and learn more about the major players that keep the local dining scene buzzing!
The annual Huntington Taste of the Town event was a huge success this year with 10 participating restaurants (including Besito, Old Fields BBQ, The Shamrock and many others) and a smiling crowd of enthusiastic guests!
The Rotary Club of Huntington organized this benefit with Appliance World. Maryanne Desimone Interthread Embroidery spearheaded the event this year alongside President of the Rotary Club, David Borg.
The proceeds went to support the General Needs non-profit organization that helps homeless veterans on Long Island.
Living Huntington was on the scene (you can see our photo gallery below) - and while the entire event and everyone attached to it deserves an enduring round of congratulatory applause, we especially enjoyed visiting with Old Fields Barbecue (to taste their smoked suckling pig) AND A La Lisa (to witness the decadent intricacy of their 'charming and delicious specialty homemade desserts, made with love' - trust us, the flower pot cupcakes they brought to the event looked amazing and tasted even better)!
Thank you @applianceworldny for hosting such a great fundraiser for the Huntington Rotary! And we hope everyone enjoyed the smoked suckling pig!
