On Sunday, March 11, FarePlate is bringing the wonders of Irish cuisine to New York City. In its third year of operation, FarePlate celebrates Ireland’s contemporary craftsmanship and centuries-old recipes in a one-day event.

“FarePlate is a celebration of Irish food and drink that brings this experience to life in a one-day event in New York City,” said FarePlate founder Bridget Bray. “Geared to foodies, Irish heritage lovers, food and drinks buyers, fun seekers and all those intrigued to learn more.”

The event will take place in Houston Hall, a grand beer hall and brew pub in the West Village. The venue’s chic industrial accents ground the mix of modern and old style drinks and recipes that will take place at the event.

Event planners use the Internet to find venues approximately 49% of the time. However, this is the second year FarePlate has chosen to use Houston Hall as its venue, originally hosting the event at the Refinery Rooftop in 2016.

Foodies won’t have to worry about any lack of flavor at FarePlate. Menus at FarePlate typically include signature cocktails and meals that highlight traditional Irish ingredients.

Some recipes even call for the use of a smoker, which up to 71% of cooks say they use for increased flavor. With interactive events, competitions, and vendor tables, there’s truly something for everyone to enjoy.

According to IrishCentral, which is fully producing the event for the first time, past companies who took part in FarePlate include Butler’s Chocolate, Just Great Mash, Ó hArtagáin, Teeling Whiskey, Flahavans USA, Kerrygold, McDaid’s Beverages, Ballymaloe Relish, and Donegal Rapseed Oil. Additional visitors included Imen McDonnell, author of The Farmette Cookbook.

Irish roots run deep in New York City. In fact, the Irish are the second largest white non-Hispanic ethnic group living in the Big Apple. It’s this statistic that makes FarePlate such a highly anticipated event, especially in the midst of Time Square Irish bar Langan’s announcement to close after 25 years.

Langan’s, which has served big names over the years such as Meryl Streep, John McCain, and Alec Baldwin, is set to close on January 18. Unfortunately, Lagan’s is just one of the most recent restaurants set to close its doors due to a high rent increase in Time Square. According to Lagan’s co-owner Des O’Brien, the landlord of the restaurant wanted to increase the rent from $16,000 a month to $53,000.

While Irish restaurants and pubs aren’t a rare sight in New York City, Lagan’s will be missed in Times Square. The authenticity of the Irish cuisine and craft brews only makes FarePlate that much more anticipated by Irish New Yorkers.

Tickets for FarePlate are set to go on sale early this year. For more information on sponsorships and company bookings for the event, contact IrishCentral at advertise@irishcentral.com.
