BBQ, Oysters and Cookies — at Tomorrow’s Hester Street Fair

Must Read

Daisy Duke's BBQ.

Hardly any Lower East Side restaurants took part in New York Restaurant Week this year. But do not despair!  The organizers of the Hester Street Fair suggest you use a little imagination — and join them for a delicious-sounding three course lunch this weekend.  They recommend you…

Start off with an oyster appetizer from one of our newest food vendors, Brooklyn Oyster Party.  The world is your oyster with these 100% raw, cold water growing, fresh oysters.  Move on to land with hearty Daisy Duke’s BBQ for your main course.  A savory pulled pork sandwich covered in vinegary slaw will definitely hit the spot.  Last, but certainly not least, end your meal on a sweet note with another newbie food vendor: e.e. cookies!  Baker Kori Staton of e.e. cookies offers all natural, small batch, gourmet cookies in classic flavors such as Triple Chocolate with Pecans, Old-Fashioned Chocolate Chip, and Oatmeal with Dried Cranberries, Blueberries, and Walnuts – just like mom used to make!  If you have a particularly big sweet tooth, maybe you’ll even want to eat dessert first!  With a whopping 9 dessert vendors this week, that definitely will not be a problem!  Try a treat from first-time vendor Filled with Sweets who offers delicious desserts with Asian-inspired flavors such as Vanilla Taro Cupcakes and Matcha Black Currant Cupcakes.

The Hester Street Fair is held every Saturday from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. in the tree-lined space next to Seward Park (where Hester and Essex Streets meet.

  1. It’s extremely odd that none of the food vendors highlighted here are from the Lower East Side. The Hester Street Fair isn’t actually particularly supportive of Lower East Side restaurants/businesses, so it’s odd that you found it necessary to point out a random fact about Restaurant Week containing few L.E.S. businesses. I like the Hester Street Fair, but think it would be important to the community if they actually actively featured more sellers who live or work in the neighborhood the fair pretends to champion. It’s especially odd that the LoDown, an awesome site for neighborhood news, doesn’t mention this. It’s a shame, really.
