Baykeepers and Dinner at L&W Oyster Co

Hello Oyster Lovers,

I'm excited to announce our next Meetup will be at L&W Oyster Co! We'll be gathering for dinner on Monday, February 25th at 6:15 pm at 254 Fifth Ave (and 28th). And for the first time, we have invited a guest speaker from NY/NJ Baykeepers. The Baykeepers are tireless advocates for the protection of NYC waterways and they are leaders in oyster bed restoration. Oyster Program Director Meredith Comi will give a short talk on the Baykeepers' projects, how oyster beds impact our watershed, and what we can do to contribute to their efforts.

Then, we'll dig into dinner at L&W Oyster Co, a new oyster bar and seafood restaurant from the team behind Almond. Chef Jason Weiner and manager Antonio Rappazzo have been hard at work on the following menu, which I can't wait to try!

Assortment of East & West Coast Oysters

Brussels Sprouts Two Ways
in the style of Caesar salad, smoked & grilled oysters

Nantucket Bay Scallop Hash
inspired by oysters Rockefeller

Family-Style Entrees:

Housemade Cavatelli
shrimp, sausage

Red Wine Braised Short Ribs

The price for this dinner is $45 plus tax and tip. If you order any drinks or other menu items a la carte, please settle those with the server on your own. Our group is capped at 12, so if you're interested in joining the fun, sign up today before we're out of space! Note: refunds will not be issued for this event, so please be confident that you can make it.

See you there!

    BTW, like Marty - my favorite oysters were Fire River, Shigoku, and always enjoy the Kumamoto. Thanks for the names again, Crystal.

    Wonderful meal, really nice folks (food obsessed and passionate about other things also), interesting conversation, and terrific organizer (thank you, Crystal) -- made for a great evening. My first with NYOL (hopefully with many more to come!)

    It was a great time. The Shigoku and Fire River were my two favorite oysters. The Nantucket Bay Scallop dish was a surprise and really good. Loved the conversation. Thanks.

    Is there anything higher than 5 stars? Without a doubt, always a good time with great food.

    Hi there, just realized that I am hosting a planning meeting for a bar association on the same evening. Oops! On any other day, the oysters would win. Is anyone interested in the ticket with a discount? Bridgette

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
