Puerto Rico Meets New York City
Puerto Rico Meets NYC (PR Meets NYC) -- from Wednesday, September 30 – Sunday, October 4 -- encompasses a series of multi-day, multi-format events that celebrate the bounty and beauty of this Caribbean island’s culinary legacy. By shedding light on the Puerto Rico’s best chefs, the rums, and the accompanying food and travel intersection, Puerto Rico Meets NYC will give this sunny destination the epicurean respect and exposure it deserves. Tapping into the deep network of Nuyoricans inhabiting New York City and surrounding, as well as food world interest resulting from recent media spotlight in such esteemed publications such as the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times, this idyllic commonwealth is ready for a turn on New York’s culinary stage.
Puerto Rico Meets NYC is the second global destination to be featured under the Meets NYC brand, which began with Baja Meets NYC in 2014. In addition to highlighting the breadth and talent coming from Puerto Rico, it also aims to highlight the Nuyorican connection by including a host of incredible local culinary talent who are opening their New York restaurants to our visiting Puerto Rican chefs. Two islands, una cocina is the goal of Puerto Rico Meets NYC.
