New Yorkers are a bit hedonistic regarding food. This can be seen from the number of food fairs and festivals during the summer season. The locals love street food and gourmet restaurant treats. At food festivals and fairs there's plenty of both! Among dozens of food events happening during the summer season, there are some that should be highlighted.
