Foodies Gasp: 'Brooklyn Eats,' As We Know It, Is Over

Why do we find this oddly disturbing? The Brooklyn Paper reports that the Olympics of Brooklyn food tasting -- Brooklyn Eats -- won’t be staged this fall. Organizers say it will return next spring — but in a leaner form.

In years past, 40 or so Brooklyn restaurants prepared delectable representations of their best morsels for paying guests (at the Marriott) to sample in a one night splurge.

“Brooklyn Eats is being reformatted,” said Maggie Beaute-Lucien, the director of special events for the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce. “We’re going to do Brooklyn Eats, but it won’t be the same. It will be smaller and more segmented.”

According to the Brooklyn Paper, Brooklyn Eats "will no longer be centralized under one fancy roof on one blowout night."
