Attention, food lovers! Another neighborhood-specific food festival is going down in NYC this weekend, so get your stretchy pants ready.  

The tenth annual Taste of the Upper West Side is a two-evening affair celebrating the best grub and restaurants the ’hood has to offer. The fete kicks off this Friday, May 19 with its Summer in the City: Surf & Turf event hosted by chef Alex Guarnaschelli of Butter as well as intrepid food and travel explorer Adam Richman.

Expect summer-appropriate dishes from 40 restaurants such as Maison Pickle, The Fat Monk, Levain Bakery, Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer, Momofuku Milk Bar, Shake Shack and more. Tickets ($105 per person) include grub, unlimited wine, signature cocktails and a DJ dance party.

Can’t get enough? The festivities (and eating) continues on Saturday, May 20 with Best of the West Presented by Park West Village, which features a food sampling from a different set of chefs in the area. Some of the restaurants involved include AG Kitchen, Bareburger, RedFarm, Carmine’s and many more. Tickets are around the same price ($135) as the previous bash.

We’re salivating just thinking about the spread! Luckily, there will also be a DJ at this event, so you can dance off some of those calories.
