The post-pandemic return of the annual Taste of Larchmont was a big success, according to Hope’s Net executive director Brandy Muñiz. More than 300 Larchmontians and neighbors greeted one another walking up and down the Boulevard on Sept. 19, sampling food tastes from local eateries at the traditional Monday evening event.

LEVAIN BAKERY, to open next year adjacent to Vernetti, flew its director of marketing and communications, Pam Lewy, and boxes of cookies from New York to share with diners at this year’s “Taste.”

TROOP 10 SCOUTS helped manage the 2022 Taste of Larchmont.

The city’s surface parking lot, adjoining the Larchmont Village clock, was headquarters, with a balloon entry and multiple tent pavilions. In addition to ticket sales, the tents housed displays of raffle prizes and silent auction items. Boy Scouts oversaw a couple of tents with beverages, and there were tents featuring desserts for the purchasers of the Taste of Larchmont passports. All proceeds from ticket sales and donated food and prizes go to the important work of Hope Net in stocking 12 food pantries in the surrounding area.
