“Dine Around Downtown” Lunch Fest Brings 40 Restaurants to 28 Liberty Plaza on May 22
Dine Around Downtown will bring 40 Lower Manhattan restaurants to Fosun's landmarked plaza at 28 Liberty for the neighborhood's biggest lunchtime festival on Tuesday, May 22, 11a-3p. The event will also mark the public debut of dishes from Manhatta and Bay Room, the newly announced projects from Danny Meyer's Union Square Hospitality Group that will be opening on the 60th floor of 28 Liberty this Summer.  
In addition to Manhatta and Bay Room, first-time Dine Around participants this year will include Brushstroke, City Acres, Blue Ribbon Bakery, Juice Brothers, Sprinkles Land and Underdog.  National Jazz Museum in Harlem All-Stars will return to perform music throughout the event.
"Dine Around Downtown brings all of the neighborhood's diverse flavors together for one decadent taste testing," said Downtown Alliance President Jessica Lappin.  "Skip breakfast, postpone your afternoon meetings and come join us for our biggest and most delicious event of the year."
"Fosun and 28 Liberty are pleased to welcome back Dine Around Downtown, a top favorite of area workers, residents and visitors," said Bo Wei, chief executive representative of Fosun Group in the U.S. and Vice President of Fosun Property Holdings. "We are excited to bring together yet another year of unforgettable community experience by bringing in Lower Manhattan's best culinary offerings," he added.
Participants are encouraged to post photos of their plates on Instagram and tag them with #DownIsWhatsUp for a chance to win a staycation in Lower Manhattan. The prize includes a two-night stay at The Conrad, a $250 gift certificate to the hotel's restaurant ATRIO Wine Bar | Restaurant, complimentary breakfast and two free Prosecco Pops at the Loopy Doopy Rooftop bar.
