Can't speak to his stance on the issues that impact the diverse downtown district, which includes Murray Hill, Union Square, Gramercy Park, Kip's Bay,the East Village, the Alphabets and portions of the Lower East Side. (Thinking that my ignorance is excusable, since I live in Brooklyn.) But I must give the candidate kudos for his gourmet platform, at least on the fundraising event front:
Gur for City Council
Discover the Taste of District 2
232 East 9th St.
btn 2nd & 3rd
6 to Astor Pl.
Twenty-five district restaurants under one roof, including:
Butter, Frank, Lavagna, Franchia, Le Tableau, Penelope, Ali Baba, Med' Cafe, Raga, General Store, Haveli, Cosette, Mercadito, Cafecito, Alphabet Kitchen, Pinch, Veselka, La Paella, 2nd Avenue Deli, The Sunburnt Cow, Bao 111 ... and more!
Plus a silent auction.
Silver Sponsor, $100
Gold Sponsor, $175
Platinum Sponsor, $250
In my book, good food transcends party lines - and district boundaries too. Besides, that's a darn tasty collection of restaurants that Tsabar's supporters have rounded up. If you're interested in purchasing tickets, use this link.
