A good meal starts on the farm. And in this case, it ends there too. On October 6th, Edible Queens and Brooklyn Grange — a rooftop urban farm in Long Island City — will launch Butcher Paper Dinner: Farm-to-Table Dinner Party Series, which will happen sporadically during the warm weather months. For the first supper, Will Horowitz, chef of Ducks Eatery in Manhattan’s East Village, will sling fresh oysters, followed by a crab boil. The seafood will be enhanced by wine from Bedell Cellars on the North Fork of Long Island, suds from Queens Brewery and music by celebrated DJ and saxophonist Neal Sugarman of Daptone Records. Dinner will be served on a massive, reclaimed white oak communal table, covered by butcher paper. For future meals, other accomplished chefs will prepare dishes using victuals from Brooklyn Grange, which grows more than 40,000 pounds of organically cultivated produce every year, most of which ends up in local restaurants.
