Whiskey Feast was a one-day event in November that brought together a variety of restaurants and bars from across New York City to compete against each other in the cocktail and small bites categories. Held at Hudson Terrace, feast-goers were able to eat and drink till their heart’s content (or they were full, either/or).
To add to the revelry, Whiskey Feast featured a live DJ, spin art (who doesn’t like pretending to be a kid while getting mildly intoxicated?), a photo booth, and, the pièce de résistance: a doughnut wall.
Yeah, you heard me. An entire wall made of doughnuts (which were supplied by Underwest Doughnuts). The hard part was not finding the doughnut wall, nor appreciating its beauty. The hardest part was deciding which flavor of doughnut to take.
If cocktails weren’t your thing, they also had straight pours of various whiskeys, including Four Roses and Wyoming Whiskey.
At the end of the day, the ultimate winners were as follows:
- People’s Choice Dish: Natwerks
- People’s Choice Cocktail: The Passage, Astoria
- Best Cocktail: Queens Bully
- Best Dish: Rahi
- Honorable Mention: Tipsy Scoop
- Staff’s Pick: Wowfulls and Beehive Oven Biscuit Cafe
