Queens Eats was a benefit at "The Foundry" in Long Island City to benefit the first Queens food Co-op named the Queens Harvest Food Co-op. A brilliant industrial space featuring some top Queens restaurants including M Wells, De Mole, Testaccio, Vesta, Market and Bareburger. Bakeries such as Cream and the fabulous Astor bakeshop sweetened the pot. Standout savories included the frank with beens and homemade slaw from my beloved M Wells and brisket and slaw sliders on brioche roll from Market. The Astor baker rocked out with red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing with some granulated sugar on top.
