Hello Oyster Lovers,
What's better than oysters on the half shell? Oysters and pork, of course! For the next Meetup, we're going to put a twist on the traditional surf & turf with an oyster & BBQ dinner at Blue Smoke. This will take place at the original Blue Smoke (116 E. 27th St) on Tuesday, Sept 18 at 6:30 pm. Danny Meyer's famed temple to smoke has a newly revamped oyster program, so if you haven't tried the restaurant yet, this is the perfect chance to dig in. Chef Eddie Montalvo has created the following menu for us, including an oyster pan roast and oyster cornbread stuffing. This will be served family-style, a great way to try everything and get to know your neighbors too!
Warm barbecue potato chips with blue cheese and bacon dip Chilled East and West Coast oysters Cocktail sauce Mignonette Cholula hot sauce Housemade tarragon mayonnaise Black pepper sausage with pimento cheese Second Course:
Oyster pan roast Third Course:
Sliced Texas-style beef brisket with oyster cornbread stuffing Pulled pork with mac & cheese Applewood-smoked chicken with sesame cole slaw Dessert:

If you order any drinks or other menu items a la carte, please settle those with the server on your own. Our table is capped at 16, 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,
