Butcher Paper Dinner: Summer Eats with Momo Sushi Shack
Summer's heating up but we're not slowing down with our Butcher Paper Dinners! We are making them a little bit later since it's staying lighter longer, but they're more bountiful than ever. Later dinners mean you can spend a full day on the beach and still make it back for your favorite rooftop feast!
Momo Sushi Shack is bringing some asian flair to the farm with seasonal seafood and ever-popular pork belly, all in very finger friendly formats. The guys making the magic happen, Phillip Gilmour, Chance Johnston, Ismael Alvarez and Makoto Suzuki, opened Momo Sushi Shack in 2010, combining fresh American ingredients with traditional Japanese technique.
The result is a tremendously popular spot in Bushwick that has received rave reviews from Yelpers (a true achievement), as well as a Michelin Guide recommendation. Their food is enough to win anyone over, but we love them even more for their commitment to sourcing locally from places like Heritage Food, Bushwick Campus Farms, and Brooklyn Grange!
So pop on up, ready your palate, grab a brew from Queens Brewery or some chilled white wine courtesy of Boundary Breaks, and kick back for a summery Sunday Butcher Paper Dinner!

ABOUT BUTCHER PAPER DINNERS:
This series of fun, inventive dinner parties to be held spring through fall at Brooklyn Grange's flagship rooftop will center around the farm's massive, reclaimed white oak communal table down the length of which organizers will roll butcher paper. A rotating lineup of the city's most innovative chefs will bring their unique culinary stylings to play with the farm's fresh, seasonal produce, serving family-style meals directly atop the paper-lined table. This style of hands-on dining allows guests to really engage with their food, and their neighboring diners around them. Participating chefs will hail from all over the New York City area but will draw their inspiration from the eclectic diversity and bold flavors of Queens' signature culinary culture.

ABOUT BOUNDARY BREAKS:
In 2007, owners Bruce and David Murray, purchased a 120-acre farm in the Finger Lakes that had been in the same family since 1850. It had been a crop farm; no vineyards had ever been planted on the property. The Murray's goal was to develop a vineyard that could yield Finger Lakes Rieslings that were comparable to some of the great Rieslings of Germany and Alsace. They planted their first vines in 2009 and released their first vintage in 2012. Seems like they made the right moves, as several months later the New York Times ranked the finest Finger Lakes Riesling! You're in for a treat, folks.
