Oysters, Clams & Cocktails, Oh My!
Kicking off Sustainable Seafood Week NYC 2013 will be an oysters, clams & cocktails benefit produced in collaboration with Village Fishmonger, Riverpark, and Future of Fish.
This event will set the tone for a week of culinary and educational programming by showcasing some of the most sustainable seafood products in the region -- oysters & clams, both wild-caught and farmed -- along with participation by the growers and baymen that bring these products to market.
There will be an opening introduction by Chef Evan Hanczor of Parish Hall. Shellfish will be sponsored by Parsons Seafood, Heritage Shellfish Alliance, Forty North Oysters, Maxwell Shellfish, Blue Island Oyster Company, and Fisher Island Oysters. Luke's Lobster will be serving up their delicious clam chowder. Beverages will be sponsored by Brooklyn Gin, Frederick Wildman, Sixpoint Brewery, Bronx Brewery, and Bacardi.
Event proceeds will benefit New York Harbor Foundation which seeks to restore and celebrate New York Harbor through 'Harbor School's Billion Oyster Project'.
