"The 5th Annual Taste celebrates the culinary diversity of Downtown and Northside restaurants and rewards the Iowa City community with sample portions from more than 40 menus! Food tickets for Taste of Iowa City are available on the 22nd at multiple ticket tents throughout the Downtown District. Participating restaurants include: Bo James, the Brown Bottle, Coldstone Creamery, Bread Garden Market, Oasis Falafel, Donnelly's, Graze, Mondo's Saloon, Givanni's, Joseph's, Basta, the Airliner, Takanami, Z'Marik's, Formosa, Capanna Coffee, Mesa Pizza, Which Wich, Yotopia, Molly's Cupcakes, Pizza on Dubuque, Atlas, Linn Street Cafe, Panchero's, Share, Quinton's, Mama's Deli, the Pit, Cured Deli, Hamburg Inn, El Bandito's, Sports Column, Orange Leaf, Devotay, Masala, Wake Up Iowa City, Cheba Hut, One Twenty Six -- and more to come!"
Last year, each ticket could be purchased for $1 and the participating restaurants charged 1-3 tickets per food item. Most food items were a sample size or just a tad bigger. This is a great way to try most of the downtown restaurants without breaking the bank.
