Zagat’s Tiny Cafe at NYC’s Astor Place to feature bite-sized free samples from top restaurants

Channel your inner tiny hamster — yes, the one with the burrito — and head to Zagat’s Tiny Cafe for a free taste of New York City’s best eats.

The Astor Place pop-up, open from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, will feature a selection of local cuisines presented in less-than-bite-sized samples. The cafe is opening to celebrate Zagat’s “2017 New York City Restaurants Guide,” which ranks the top restaurants around the city, and the tiny bites pay homage to Zagat’s short reviews.

The “tiny tasting menu” will feature miniature morsels, including the Emmy Burger and Luca Pizza from Pizza Loves Emily, the Adobada Taco from Los Tacos and chocolate chip cookies from Jacques Torres Chocolate.

Catch a glimpse of the tiny morsels before you head down to the corner of Astor Place and Cooper Square to taste the dishes for yourself.
