It is the 14th year for the event.
More than 30 of the city's finest restaurants and eateries will serve tastings, in a celebration that also features live music, dancing, and plenty of family fun.
The tastings will be served at three locations: under canopies at Columbus Circle; along Broadway between 62nd and 64th Streets; and at Richard Tucker Park between 65th and 66th Streets.
Tony-Award winner Brian Stokes Mitchell, Rosie's Theater Kids, and Frank London's Klezmer Brass All-Stars will make special appearances, along with Eyewitness News Anchor Sade Baderinwa, who will begin the event by lighting the Upper West Side Holiday Tree in Dante Park.
Winter's Eve will take place in Lincoln Square, at Broadway and 63rd Street, from 5:30 until 9 p.m.
