25+ Barracks Row restaurants serve up their best!

Once a year its possible for a couple to eat at just about every restaurant on Barracks Row all in one afternoon.  Saturday, May 2 is that magic moment when 25+ Row restaurants serve tapas sized portions of their most famous dishes during Taste of 8th.
If you already have a favorite dining spot or two on the Row but you've been thinking about trying out someplace new, don't miss Taste of 8th. Wear your traveling cape - our restaurants will take you from Ireland to Belgium, back to the United States, on to Korea, and beyond.

A menu by course of what every restaurant will be serving will be available during the event so you can strategically plan a course-by-course, country-by-country sampling lunch... all for $20 per 5 Pack of tickets.
