Join us on a dinner walk to explore the best of culinary NoHo. The curated stops represent the best of the neighborhood's hip dining scene. No reservations required on weeknights, just your appetite. We'll start with cocktails at a speakeasy and move on to French-Vietnamese appetizers, Italian pasta for mains, pop-Japanese for dessert and a historic Irish pub to cap the night.
