The Taste of Roslindale: September 18

 The Taste of Roslindale

I am a tremendous fan of the restaurants in Roslindale Village. At times, however, this leaves me with a problem, sort of a culinary prisoner’s dilemma: Do I stop into Sophia’s Grotto from the Spanish antipasto and open faced ravioli or head over to Geoffrey’s for the chicken saltimbocca?

Now, at least for one night, September 18, I won’t have to torture myself with food scenarios. Many of my favorite eateries will all be under one roof, that of the Annunciation Church on VFW Parkway for the 2nd Annual Taste of Roslindale. Some of the others participating will be Boschetto’s Bakery, the Birch Street Bistro, Bangkok Cafe and Fornax Bread Company.

The event will also feature its own version of a Throwdown called a “Butcher Block.” Mayor Menino and Vinny Marino of the BrickHouse Cafe in Dedham will battle Roslindale’s Charley McCarthy and WCVB’s Susan Wornick in a unique food demonstration. 

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and tickets for $40-per-person can be purchased upon entry. I’m a board member of the Roslindale Village Main Street, which is sponsoring the event, with proceeds  to benefit the Jason Roberts Challenger Little League Baseball and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.
