Arriving at Taste of the Nation NYC 2017, I was elated to find Walters Hotdogs of Mamaroneck serving from there truck at the entrance. The venerable art deco pagoda was a regular culinary destination of my misspent youth in Westchester.While waiting for my dog, I chatted with Danny Meyer, honorary chair of the benefit for the worthy No Kids Hungry charity. The restaurateur was pleased with the turnout and told me that he was awaiting upcoming reviews of his newly relocated flagship Union Square Cafe.Inside the multi level space, I feasted on offerings from more than 50 purveyors of food and drink. Standout dishes included a delicious gnochetti with rabbit ragout from Freek's Mill and and a toothsome "eggs and ham" deviled eggs with prosciutto di Parma from restaurant Pig Bleeker.Upstairs there was a casino, where the restaurant from the Empire Casino served buttery lobster ravioli and prime beef sliders.Desserts included amazing strawberry and cream donuts from Underwest Donuts. Nobody left this splendid event hungry.
