Homearama’s Taste of Suffolk will delight visitors’ palates

It’s not just what you’ll see, but it’s also what you’ll smell and taste that will make for a delicious evening at Tidewater Builders Association’s Homearama. Mark your calendars now to sample the finest of fares from five Suffolk eateries during Homearama’s Taste of Suffolk from 6 to 8 p.m., Monday, Oct. 24, in The Riverfront at Harbour View in north Suffolk.

During this event, sponsored by Hampton Roads Magazine, chefs from five Suffolk restaurants will face off in a friendly food competition and for a chance to win the Critics’ Choice and People’s Choice awards. Participating restaurants include:

  • The Broken Egg Bistro with bread pudding with Bailey’s cream sauce
  • River Stone Chophouse serving Korean barbecue short rib “sliders”
  • Primo 116 Bistro Italiano offering ricotta gnocchi with a crumbled sausage sauce
  • Smithfield Station with roast pork sliders
  • O’Doodle Doos Donuts with a selection of specialty donuts

After sampling the fares, visitors will be able to vote for their favorite to determine who will win the coveted People’s Choice Award. A contingent of local food writers, led by Hampton Roads Magazine’s Patrick Evans-Hylton, will determine who wins the Critics’ Choice Award.

In addition to the culinary experience, visitors also will be able to see not only what’s new and innovative in today’s new homes, but also what resort living is all about. The homes will be open to the public Oct. 15-30 from noon until 9 p.m. Ticket sales stop one hour before closing. General admission is $10 for a one-day pass and $17 for a two-day pass. Active duty and retired military guests and seniors (62 or better) get a $2 discount Monday-Thursday. A $3 discount coupon is available courtesy of HomeTalk.com by visiting www.homearama.tv.
