BBQ and oysters? While it may be a little unusual, after our phenomenal dinner last year at Blue Smoke, I can vouch wholeheartedly that this is the ultimate in surf & turf. So, I’m excited to announce a new Meetup at Blue Smoke Jazz Standard (116 E. 27th St b/w Park & Lexington) on Thursday, Dec. 12th at 6 pm.
Chef Eddie Montalvo is a long time oyster fanatic and friend of the Oyster Lovers Meetup, with an incredible level of knowledge and passion for seafood. I can also vouch that Chef Eddie’s talents extend far beyond the kitchen, and that he is graceful while digging a geoduck clam out from 3 feet of wet sand. He has designed the following menu for us, and it promises to be a fantastic night:
Trio of Oysters:
Smoked Rockefeller, Chilled with Creme Fraiche, Trout Roe and “Stuffie” Fennel-Raisin Bread, Tasso, Celery Leaf, Paprika
Oyster Pot Pie
Smoked Chicken with Alabama White Sauce and Crispy Brussels Sprouts
Pulled Pork with Cole Slaw
Beef Ribs with Mac and Cheese
Sticky Toffee Pudding
Fried Apple Pie with Vanilla Ice Cream
So, please join us in Dec for the last Oyster Lovers Meetup of the year! This dinner will be $50 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 currently capped at 16, so if you’re interested in joining the fun, sign up today before we’re out of space.
See you there!
