Parish Hall celebrates local flavors every day, sourcing many of their meats, grains and greens from their own Goatfell Farm and other regional purveyors. On Thursday, August 2nd, they’re taking the party closer to home with a feast focused on foods produced right here in the Big Apple.
The event marks the publication of Robin Shulman’s Eat the City, a new book that explores New York City’s cultural history through the stories of its “poultry minders, sugar refiners, cane cutters, beekeepers, winemakers and brewers.” Like Shulman’s book (which comes with the meal), the dinner is a celebration of the five boroughs’ flavor-makers. Eat the City is the second of Parish Hall’s Taste of a Place dinner series; in each, the restaurant gets intimate with a small geographic area. Taste of a Place, vol. 1, featured the flavors of the northern Catskills region.
Hungry for the story behind the Domino Sugar Factory, plus rooftop veggies and Bronx-bred sugar cane? Thirsty for local beer and Red Hook rum? Then it’s time to Eat the City.
