The BNP Paribas Taste of Tennis is one of our favorite events on the NYC eating calendar. We obviously enjoy sampling dishes from big-name chefs, which this year included Anita Lo, Kerry Heffernan and Michelle Bernstein. But it’s a little-known fact that Food Republic is staffed with a number of pro tennis freaks. Pro-Nadal tennis freaks that is. Next week we’ll be reporting on the food scene at the U.S. Open, which kicks off Monday in Queens, New York. Until then, here are some photos from last night’s action at the W New York hotel in Midtown.
