LETTERS FROM THE ISLAND: New location on the menu for Taste of Grand Island


Niagara Gazette — Corey anticipates some 27 restaurants, recalling that when he first proposed this, he kept hearing “Taste of Grand Island? How much pizza can you serve?” We don’t have a LOT of choices over here, but we’re pretty diverse, including the Japanese fare of Serene Gardens and the New Orleans aromas of Dick & Jenny’s.

It’s the standard protocol, 50-cent tickets sold in various batches and exchanged for the goodies. It starts at 10 a.m., winds down about 8. Last year we actually went three times. We sent a flier to Rockin’ Rodney, our Liverpool card, who inquired by return mail, “So what’s an Island taste like?” Almost anything you want.

Come visit. Bring a bib.
