When John D. Rockefeller entertained at the Casements, he and his guests dined on the best that Ormond Beach had to offer – great food and fine wines. The Taste of Ormond will repeat that tradition for the fourth year from 4 -7 p.m. Sunday, March 5.
This year, guests will dine on fare from 19 of Ormond’s best restaurants including; 31 Supper Club, Blau, Cakery Creation, Crab Island Café, Crabby Chris, Donnie's Donuts, Greektown Taverna, Grind Gastropub, Hershey's Ice Cream, Kale Café, Living Waters/Angel's Café, Lulu's Oceanside Grill, Maria Bonita, Ormond Beach Olive Oil Company, Rose Villa Southern Table and Bar, Stonewood Grill & Tavern, Thai Woodhouse, Toscana Ristorante and Virgola.
Eat like a Rockefeller without spending like one! Ticket holders may sample as many restaurants as they like, and there is no additional charge for each food item.
There will be a wine and craft beer tasting area offered by S.R. Perrott, and each table of 10 will receive two bottles of wine to share.
Live music and a charity raffle round out the afternoon with plenty of time to relax, enjoy the garden sunset and the company of friends.
Taste of Ormond is a fundraiser for Ormond Beach MainStreet, the local non-profit that works to grow and enliven Ormond’s core district along Granada Boulevard. The money raised at this event goes to help new local businesses with marketing grants, fund new initiatives for downtown and bring new events, art and entertainment into the district.
Tickets are $55 each or a sponsor table for $500 and available online at OrmondBeachMainStreet.com or call 492-2938.
