Restaurants and food trucks that have never participated before are indicated with an asterisk in the list above.

Each restaurant will serve a healthy option with fewer calories, less sodium and fat, as well as a smaller Taste portion of their signature menu item.

“Our hope is that you can try more food at a variety of restaurants without filling up too fast,” Ralph Basile, chair of 2017 Taste of Buffalo presented by TOPS, said.

The Taste of Buffalo will be held 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday July 8 with live music in the Niagara East Beer Tent until 11 p.m., and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. July 9. Admission is free. Food items cost between two to ten tickets each  ($1 to $5). Tickets are valued at $0.50 each and are sold in $5 sheets at three ticket booths located throughout the event.

Beginning June 11, participating Tops Markets will sell pre-sale food ticket vouchers at checkout and guests who purchase a $50 voucher will receive a coupon redeemable for four free non-alcoholic beverages at the Taste.

Menu items and additional event details will be announced next month. Visit tasteofbuffalo.com for more information
