Over the past couple of weeks, I've been providing some inside looks at some of the vendors and to give you even more ideas on where to eat, check out my guide below.
First - some tips on doing Project: EATS right:
1) Bring water
2) Bring sunscreen
3) Bring friends to share
Most of the vendors do accept credit cards, but it's always helpful to have some cash on hand as well and if you're over 21, don't forget ID for the bars.
Best Bets for Vegans
Salt and Seed - New to the event this year, Salt and Seed is bringing vegan tacos like walnut chorizo and carrot asada along with a variety of vegan desserts. Sunday only.
Eemas Cuisine - Their hugely popular Hawaiian-inspired musubi and plate lunches are available with a crunchy, flavorful tempeh katsu.
House of Gains - Known for their healthier interpretations of favorite meals, they'll be offering up a special falafel bowl.
Koro Koro - Japanese-inspired rice balls with several vegan options and all naturally gluten-free.
The Guac Spot - vegan avocado lovers, this is your spot. They offer both meat and plant-based dishes, but best of all, avocado is incorporated into every one. Sunday only.
Bread and Spoon - Bread and Spoon will be debuting a new dessert concept, Dreamboats, including vegan varieties. Saturday only.
Milk Sugar Love - As always, Milk Sugar Love will be providing a non-dairy ice cream to help cool you off as the day warms up.
Just BeClaws - Seafood with a Vietnamese-Cajun twist including a lobster roll, perfect for celebrating summer.
Brooklyn Oyster Party - Freshly-shucked oysters make a great snack but leave plenty of room to try everything else.
Angry Archie's - A delicious take on seafood in a streetfood style. Don't miss the crabcakes or the crab poutine fries if they're available.
Tidal Poke Co. - After debuting at last year's Project: EATS and now opening a storefront, poke bowls are back and even better.
There are quite a few new vendors this year, but some major ones to look out for are:
Louie's BBQ Pit - Bringing brisket, pulled pork, and more, their Cuban-Mojito Barbecue sauce sounds like a can't miss. Sunday only.
Moffle Bar - Mochi+waffles=colorful deliciousness.
Gusti Di Sicilia - Authentic Sicilian specialties with lots of variety.
Suwanna Food - Get your taste of Thailand with these bites - and some Thai Iced Tea.
My Personal Must-Haves
Ace's Wings - I have yet to try Ace's Wings but have heard nothing but good things about these super-crispy, flavorful wings served in flavors ranging from Salt & Sichuan Pepper to Peanut Butter & Jelly. They'll be available Sunday only.
