September 9, 2017  •  The Williamsburg Hotel

The Future Food Expo is a showcase and celebration of what's next in food and drink! As America’s hottest test kitchen, Brooklyn has become an international epicenter of the food movement. This event showcases the future of food products, companies, startups, technology, media and innovators from right here in Brooklyn and around the world!


September 8, 2017  •  The Weylin, Williamsburg

We're thrilled to raise the curtain of year two of The Tastys: A celebration of what's inspiring the new generation of eaters, drinkers, and innovators hosted by Matty Matheson of VICELAND's Dead Set on Life. Nominees for 2017 are now in- check them out here!

We’re pushing the boundaries of what a food awards program can be, putting our focus on culture, innovation and diversity. With over 25 award categories including best food startup, best food Instagram account, and best non-profit, we're toasting chefs, restaurants, food media and more for their great taste. 

This isn't your regular golf-claps awards ceremony, either: our live show brings energy to the format with musical performances, engaging demos with chefs, comedians, and live storytelling — not to mention your favorite chefs and cultural influencers all in attendance. 

This year The Tasty's will take place on the first night of the festival: September 8, 2017 at The Weylin in Williamsburg. After-party to follow!
