Taste of the New North
Monday ONLY!  April 12, 2021 
Top Restaurants from Around The Region, Together for a Night of Culinary Excellence at the DoubleTree by Hilton, Pgh-Cranberry

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.

Typically, this upscale event is held in the Fall. As we all know, however, the world was put 'on hold' for months due to COVID-19 outbreak. It's our pleasure to offer this exclusive program in the Spring, Monday, April 12 at the DoubleTree from 6:30 - 9:30pm. Doors to the auctiions open at 6pm.

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!
