As part of our fourth annual Eat Drink Local Week–which kicks off on June 23rd– we challenged chefs and home cooks around the city to cook with eight local ingredients: spinach, eggs, goat (milk, cheese, yogurt, meat, etc.), radishes, rose wines, porgy, fava beans, and hops.  In answer to our challenge, CITY GRIT Culinary Salon, host of supper club-like gatherings in a 70-seat dining room in an old school house in Nolita, has planned an elaborate 5-course meal called “Edible Eat Drink Local Feast” on Thursday, June 28th featuring four of the featured ingredients, plus rosé wine pairings for every course (see the menu below) from the various wineries represented by our Eat Drink Local Week sponsor, New York Wines!  For more info or to get tickets for the dinner, click here.
