Gourmet Food Circle: Walking Food Tour of Flushing, Queens

Flushing Chinatown, also known as “Mandarin Town” is one of the largest and fastest growing ethnic Chinese enclaves in New York City. With such a sizable Chinese community, it is hardly surprising that Flushing has become a hot spot for some of the best Chinese food that New York has to offer. On Saturday July 29, join China Institute as we partner with Flushing Town Hall to host a walking food tour of the neighborhood, part of our ongoing Gourmet Food Circle, programming series. Participants will have a chance to learn more about the area’s dynamic history, as we sample neighborhood favorites from local cafes, restaurants, and shops with Queens-based food writer, Joe DiStefano. The tour will start on Main Street, and end at Flushing Town Hall, where participants will have a chance to view the center’s upcoming exhibition, Taking it to the Streets: 1950s NY through the Lens of Flushing Photographer Frank Oscar Larson.
