Hello Oyster Lovers,
Summer travel season is here, and my thoughts naturally turn to to seaside villages and lazy Riviera afternoons. But you won't have to jet across the pond to capture that spirit if you come to this Meetup event! We'll be meeting at Left Bank (117 Perry St at Greenwich St) on Tues, August 19th at 6:30 pm for a dinner themed "Just Back from France." Chef Laurence Edelman (formerly at Mermaid Oyster Bar) is someone who was "born to love oysters," and I am thrilled to present the following oyster-centric menu from him:
Eastern Oysters on the Half Shell
Baked Stuffed Oysters, Mustard, Spinach Cake
Soup de Poisson, Rouille, Gruyere
Pan-Seared Boulette, Potato Puree, Fried Oyster Salad
Parisian Chocolate Mousse, Market Berries, Cream
For some lovely photos and quotes from Chef Edelman, do check out Julie Qiu's interview with him: http://www.inahalfshell.com/interview/chef-laurence-edelman (http://www.inahalfshell.com/interview/chef-laurence-edelman/)
So, join us for a French-influenced meal with New York sensibilities! This dinner will be $50 plus tax and tip. If you'd like to use PayPal instead of Amazon Payments, just send me a message. If you order any drinks or other menu items a la carte, please settle those with the server on your own. Our group is currently capped at 16, so 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!
