It may be chilly out but you can take a quick trip south with the next Oyster Lovers Meetup at Mayfield! I’m excited to announce a six-course dinner at one of Brooklyn’s most lauded restaurants on Tuesday, February 24th at 6:30 pm.
Chef Lev has come up with a fabulous oystercentric menu for us, featuring raw oysters, cornmeal fried oysters, roasted oysters, oyster chowder, and their house special fried quail. Check it out:
1st Course: Montauk Pearls (LI), Moon Shoals (MA), Kusshi (BC)
2nd Course: Cornmeal-fried Blue Points, house smoked salmon, celeriac remoulade, horseradish cream
3rd Course: Roasted Island Creeks, creamed chard, prosciutto chip, lemon, sauce Choron
4th Course: Oyster chowder, potato, scallion, jalapeno
5th Course: Buttermilk fried quail, spoon bread, collard greens
6th Course: Ricotta donuts, cinnamon sugar, Nutella
By now, you may have guessed that Mayfield is named after Curtis Mayfield, the soul singer, songwriter and civil rights activist. As the NYT puts it, “To aspire to soul is at once laudable and hazardous. It’s a welcome surprise that the chef, Lev Gewirtzman, gets so much right, starting with the earthy, flawless collards, spoon bread with the body of a soufflé and the heart of a pudding, and buttermilk-fried quail, like a Southern Christmas breakfast.”
So, join us for a Southern-influenced meal with Brooklyn sensibilities! This dinner will be $48 plus tax and tip. Our group is currently capped at 14, 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.
