Taste of the New North

Taste of the True North

October 24 / 6:30 pm 9:30 pm

Top Restaurants from Around The Region Come Together for One Night of Culinary Excellence!

The 2021 Taste of the New North was canceled due to a lack of participating restaurants, citing severe staffing and supply shortages. It has been rescheduled for 2022.

Since 2002, Taste of the New North has celebrated culinary and performing arts excellence. 21+ restaurants, caterers, and hospitality providers take up all 5 ballrooms of the DoubleTree by Hilton, Pittsburgh-Cranberry in Mars, to offer a cornucopia of selections from their menus, as well as wine and beer tastings.  This refined gala also features music, Silent & Raffle auctions, and a cabaret-style floor show.

Much more than a typical ‘Taste’ event, Taste of the New North guests enjoy dedicated, ‘reservations-only’ seating, which enables them not only to enjoy the wide variety of menu offererings, but to relax with their friends and family at their assigned tables. As they sit and socialize, they are sereneded by a strolling violinist, and enjoy special music by one of our guest artists.  They’ll then be treated to a ‘sneak peak’ of upcoming shows at The Strand with our exclusive Taste of the New Season cabaret performance.

While enjoying the evening, guests are encouraged to visit our Silent & Raffle Auctions. Businesses from all over the Pittsburgh area provide an extensive variety of prizes and high-value items. If that weren’t enough, even more premium prizes are available with our special champagne and whiskey raffles!

Truly, there is nothing like The Strand’s annual Taste of the New North. It offer all of the culture and refinement of an upscale charity gala at pricing that offers a genuine value, with all proceeds benefiting the charitable Strand Theater Initiative.

This enchanting evening of culinary excellence and celebration of the arts is not to be missed.  Be sure to make your reservation today as this delightful gala tends to sell out quickly!
