A local food guru will lead a restaurant tour through Elmhurst and Jackson Heights this weekend to benefit a charity launched in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
Joe DiStefano, a Queens-based food writer and culinary tour guide, will guide participating foodies in an international cuisine crawl through the two neighborhoods on Saturday, July 11 and Sunday, July 12.
Proceeds from the crawl tickets will benefit Queens Together, a restaurant advocacy group that supports local eateries and feeds residents in need. The group was founded in response to the pandemic and was originally called Astoria Together.
