Family Foodie Fare 2017

Many of the area’s top restaurants made their way to Engine 15 Brewing Co. Downtown for the second annual Family Foodie Fare on February 26. Adults were treated to grown-up eats, while the kids (and kids-at-heart) dabbled in all the mac n’ cheese or meatball dishes they could get their hands on. After sampling each dish and dessert from restaurants like V Pizza, Sweet Pete’s Candy, Culhane’s Irish Pub, Uptown Kitchen and Black Sheep, moms, dads and their little ones each cast a vote for best dish and best dessert. The Bearded Pig took home all the honors—the kids choice and best overall award—with their coleslaw and mac n’ cheese topped sliders, while Good Dough’s doughnuts took home the best dessert award. Guests were also encouraged to bring donation items such Goldfish or applesauce for Feeding Northeast Florida’s SnackPack Program, where over three barrels of food were collected for children in need.
