Taste of the Island
The Block Island Times, in collaboration with the Helping Hands Food Pantry, will host the third annual “A taste of the island,” a tasting event that will feature 15 island restaurants offering small-plate samples of a selected item from their 2018 menu.
Admission to the event grants unlimited access to chef-prepared small plates, which range from starters to desserts. Proceeds from the event go directly to Helping Hands, the island version of a food pantry, which is headquartered in the basement of Harbor Church from mid-October to mid-May, providing food to those in need. For only $20, attendees will enjoy a taste of 2018 menu items from the island’s finest restaurants. The event will be held on Sunday, June 10 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Block Island Maritime Center in New Harbor. Tickets are available at the door. Don’t miss this kick off to the 2018 season and Restaurant Week!
