Times Square Alliance Hosts Taste of Times Square Week with Local Restaurants & Live Entertainment Starting Today to June 14

Published

on

26 RESTAURANTS WILL OFFER A $35 3-COURSE PRIX FIXE MENU FROM JUNE 7–14 FOR A VARIETY OF DINING OPTIONS

The Times Square Alliance announces the launch of Taste of Times Square Week today, which begins Monday, June 7 and will run through Monday, June 14.  The weeklong promotion supports local businesses who have struggled to serve customers during the pandemic and welcomes people back to Times Square as we await the return of Broadway. During Taste of Times Square Week, the twenty-six participating restaurants will feature a special three-course prix fixe menu — appetizers, entrées, and dessert — for only $35 (beverages, tax, and tip not included). Diners can sit indoors or outdoors or get their food delivered or to go as the restaurant offers. Details about participating restaurants (also listed below) and their menus can be found at www.TSq.org/Taste.  Taste of Times Square Week is presented in partnership with SEATED and sponsored by T-Mobile.       

On average, we are now seeing 180,000 daily pedestrians in Times Square and are thrilled to continue welcoming back New Yorkers and visitors to the neighborhood, emerging from the pandemic hungry to experience Times Square’s amazing restaurants,” said Tom Harris, President of the Times Square Alliance. “Take this opportunity to eat your way through Times Square and enjoy the live entertainment as the district comes alive this spring.”   

To enhance your dining experience, Tony’s Di Napoli will be activating the plaza at 43rd Street and Broadway with a pop-up, outdoor cafe area, complete with old-school checkered tablecloths and family-style Italian cuisine so that you can dine under the lights and signs of Times Square.  Tony’s Di Napoli is accepting both reservations (212-221-0100) and walk ins for this unique dining experience.    

To continue the tradition of live music at Taste, we have partnered with the Hell’s Kitchen Happiness Krewe, which uses artistic and musical performances to spread joy through the neighborhood and drive revenue to restaurants and other small businesses. These performances will pop up throughout the week in front of participating restaurants and will continue to employ artists and musicians who have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19.  

In addition to these pop-up performances, we will also showcase Brand New Day, featuring musical performances, a fashion runway show, and dancing in the streets on Friday, June 11 at 11am on the Broadway Plaza between 43rd and 44th Streets.  Hosted by NY1’s Frank DiLella and a surprise celebrity guest, this event will include dances choreographed by James Alonzo and “Pose” star / choreographer Jason A. Rodriguez, musical performances, and a live fashion runway show featuring summer looks from Macy’s private brands modeled by some of Broadway’s brightest stars.

The Times Square Alliance has been supporting local restaurants through Taste of Times Square for the past 26 years.  This past October the event pivoted to a weeklong promotion, which continues with this iteration.

A Toast to a Sparkling Fourth of July

Published

on

Fourth of July is just around the corner. Get ready to get your red, white and rosé on with these excellent selections. Your holiday will simply sparkle with these spectacular sip selections.

For a perfect start to your holiday luncheon and to kick off the holiday in a refreshing way try Mingle Mocktails Sparkling Raspberry Rosé.

This is a sparkling rosé in a pretty can option suitable for anyone whether you drink alcohol or not. We adore the bright bubbles that fizz out delicious notes of raspberry. Crisp and dry, it hits your senses perfectly and lingers with just a hint of sweetness on an end note. It is a wonderful drink to have as you start to talk to guests arriving for a wonderful day of holiday festivities.

For a sophisticated sip that will make you blush with wonderful joy try Minuty Prestige Rosé.

Minuty Prestige wines have been showcasing the terroirs of Provence for over 25 years. Subtle finesse comes with this crystal-clear cuvée with a delicate nose. This cuvée was born over 25 years ago out of Jean-Etienne and François Matton’s desire to offer a wide audience of Provence rosé lovers a wine combining aromatic expression and lightness on the palate with a thorough mastery of Provence’s terroirs.

We adore this breathtaking selection that delicately hits your senses with a smooth balance that bears a hint of bright reflection to add to your day. A perfect choice for the sun set before the fireworks.

For the perfect drink to have with the holiday bbq and when the fireworks pop in the sky try Cloudy Bay 2023 Sauvignon Blanc.

The color reflects perfectly with the fireworks illuminating over you as you sip on this gorgeous wine that speaks to you in grand voice with notes of juicy citrus.  Your pairing with your festive meal will be matched by the capricious and grateful attitude for all the party guests that surround you. We love the way it helps you see the night in a whole new beautiful way.

Here is to your own magical Fourth of July holiday with these incredible sips.

Delola has officially made ready-to-enjoy cocktails sips for the best summer ever!

Founded by Jennifer Lopez, the expansion of THE HOUSE OF DELOLA showcases a new Light Margarita Cocktail that will blow you away. Every sip in this collection sparkles with delicious joy!

Delola’s master mixologist, Lynnette Marrero, collaborated with Jennifer to craft the new Light Margarita, alongside the three original expressions, Vodka-based Bella Berry Cocktail, Tequila-based Paloma Rosa Cocktail, and Amaro-based L’Orange Spritz.

Delola Light Margarita is a lower in calorie twist on the classic Margarita cocktail, crafted with premium tequila and triple citrus. Delola as an easy, natural, lower calorie option for those who enjoy full-flavored cocktails. Delola Light Margarita is only 125 calories per serving and was recently awarded the coveted Gold Medal at the San Francisco Ready To Drink Competition.

“By introducing Delola to the world, we wanted to provide world-class cocktails without all of the calories and effort. The Delola Light Margarita is fresh and delicious with premium tequila and triple citrus notes. I think it’s the perfect ready-to-enjoy version of the most popular cocktail,” stated Lopez.

 

“The launch of Delola Light Margarita follows all the positive feedback we’ve received for our three initial cocktails. People today are more aware of the quality and ingredients in their drinks, and the fact that we’ve crafted mixology-level cocktails using natural ingredients is clearly resonating with consumers,” Lynnette reflected.

Delola Light Margarita is sold in a uniquely embossed glass bottle and will be available in 750ml  and 375ml sizes. Like all Delola Cocktails, is available in grocery and fine wine and spirit retailers, restaurants, and hotels nationally.

Both are great at Cane’s, but you only want the sweet version of Ice T!”
