New York Event: Taste Torino at the United Nations This Week

I so wish I was going to be in New York this week. If so, I would make a beeline for the United Nations Delegates Dining Room where all week the restaurant is celebrating the food of Torino with an all-you-can-eat-buffet for just $25 (plus drinks and tip). Torino, the capital of Piedmont and host of the 2006 Winter Olympics, has some of the best food in Italy. I’ve spent a total of about a month in the city, including three weeks during the Olympics and trust me, I ate my way through the place.

According to,”The Delegates’ Dining Room is open for lunch only, from 11:30 to 2:30 p.m. and only on weekdays. Reservations must be made at least a day in advance by leaving a message at (212) 963-7625. Jackets are required for men, and sneakers and jeans are prohibited. If you go, allow extra time to pass through regular U.N. security downstairs and show picture identification to get your special badge to go upstairs to the dining room. From the street, enter at the regular public entrance to the United Nations at 46th Street and First Avenue.”
