Twenty-five borough restaurants - including Blue Ribbon Sushi in Park Slope, Henry’s End in Brooklyn Heights and Veliis in Fort Greene - will be serving tastes of their specialties at Share Our Strength’s "Taste of the Nation" on June 13.

Marc Lahm (pictured), the chef and owner of Henry’s End, is participating in the benefit for the first time. "This is such an important event and for such a worthy cause, how could I not be apart of it?" he asked. One hundred percent of the ticket sales for "Taste of the Nation" will go to organizations like City Harvest and God’s Love We Deliver that offer aid in the form of food and education to low-income individuals.

On Tuesday, from 7 pm to 10 pm (6 pm for VIP admittance), foodies can lend their support by attending this fabulous event that offers dining, an art exhibition and local authors signing their latest books. The benefit will be held at DUMBO’s Tobacco Warehouse, a huge, open-air brick structure that makes an ideal setting.

In addition to great food, a catwalk - with models wearing local designers’ wares - will be erected center stage and Southpaw’s owner Mikey Palms will play DJ, spinning tunes throughout the evening.

Share Our Strength’s "Taste of the Nation" takes place at the Tobacco Warehouse (26 New Dock St. at Water Street in DUMBO) on June 13, from 7 pm to 10 pm. Pre-sale tickets are $75 per person ($90 on the day of the event). VIP tickets ($125 per person; $150 at the door) allow partygoers to enter at 6 pm to preview the eats. Included in the VIP ticket price is a special lounge where ticket holders can sample canapes and cocktails and receive a goody bag filled with treats from area businesses. To order, visit, or call (877) 268-2783.
