Neighborhood foodies assembled at the Baron DeKalb Knights of Columbus to test the tastes of 20 local eateries during this year’s “Taste of Sheepshead Bay” — and their pallets weren’t disappointed.

“The food was great,” said lovely local and food-lover Diana Manakhimova.

Fifteen restaurants who served-up mouth-watering treats at last year’s event, including Il Fornetto and Chop Stix, came back, and were joined by five newcomers, including the family-owned Uzbeki kabab joint Chayhana Salom, which celebrated its grand opening at the event

The crowd favorites, however, were both returning restaurateurs.

“I think the hero guys (Jimmy’s Famous Heros) were good, and the frozen yogurt people (Arbuz), they were good too,” said Irina Khristidi. “Those were my favorites.”

The event was sponsored by the blog Sheepshead Bites, a local blog.
