Dozens of restaurants participated in the 2014 Taste of Sunnyside, a food festival to celebrate the neighborhood’s cuisine, culture, and community.

Food lovers from all over New York City were invited to dine out on Queens Boulevard on Tuesday, May 20, between 45th and 46th streets, under the elevated No. 7 train.

The neighborhood, known for its Irish pubs and spirit, is showing the world that while it still honors its past traditions, it’s also become a haven for new talent.

Taste of Sunnyside is hosted by Sunnyside Shines in partnership with Edible Queens. A portion of the ticket proceeds benefit beautification projects in Sunnyside.
