The inaugural Bite of PhinneyWood tasting event on Sept. 17 was a scrumptious success! More than 500 neighbors came together to meet and try food from amazing local restaurants, cafés, and bars. The sold-out event raised more than $20,000 for our essential programs and services while celebrating our incredible local food scene.

Bite attendees were invited to vote for the Best Bite of the event. And the winner is… up to you! After counting the results several times, the contest is tied between North Star Diner‘s Left Coast Reuben and Thaiku‘s Gaeng Krua Sapparod. We need your help to break the tie! 

Vote for your favorite dish between North Star Diner’s Left Coast Reuben and Thaiku’s Gaeng Krua Sapparod by eating both and then emailing our Small Business Advocate Chris at chrism@phinneycenter.org with proof of purchase (receipt, etc.) and your choice. We’re excited to announce a winner soon!
