Hester Nights is back starting this Thursday, May 2nd for a second year, with food stands in the open air plaza by the Eventi Hotel (851 6th Avenue between 28th and 29th Street). It happens every Thursday this summer from 5pm-10pm, until September 26th.
Each Thursday features different vendors and themes, and here is the current lineup.
Khao Man Gai NY: “serving up one of the most popular Thai street dishes rarely seen in NYC -khao man gai (chicken with rice). This one plate dish of all natural chicken, slowly poached with garlic and ginger, served over fragrant Thaijasmine rice, accompanied by a sauce that balances the four main Thai tastes of sour, sweet, salty, and spicy will certainly be a favorite.”
