The count-down begins for Taste of Venice 2014, which will be held on Sunday, Sept. 14.
Starting at The Electric Lodge, Taste of Venice highlights Venice’s extraordinary culinary talent and features a unique restaurant walking/tasting tour where attendees sample signature dishes from chefs as well as enjoy wine, beer and cocktail tastings.
Highlights also include music, cooking demonstrations by favorite Venice chefs, and special presentations by celebrity hosts.
The event supports the Inside Out Community Arts Program of P.S. ARTS while celebrating chefs that make this eclectic and cosmopolitan community their home.
Taste of Venice consists of three courses: the opening ceremony, the tasting hour, and the post reception.

The tasting tour from 4-6:30 pm will be an opportunity to taste exclusive samples from top Abbot Kinney Boulevard restaurants.
The post reception from 6:30-7 pm will include coffee, treats, and drinks.
