EVENT DESCRIPTION
A great woman once said, “Just try new things.” and so the inaugural Brooklyn Grange fish fry was born. We’re New Yorkers, you don’t have to tell us twice.

Chef Orion’s at the helm serving up crispy fried fish with all the DIY taco fixins’ your heart can dream of. Think: fresh pickled veggies, plenty of sauces and succulent porgys battered and fried to Rhode Island perfection & we’re not skimping on the sides either.   It’s a down and dirty feast so get ready to have some fun! This ain’t your grandma’s supper club, it’s a Butcher Paper Dinner!

This finger-licking feast is brought to you by the standout team behind  Greenpoint Fish and Lobster, a local Brooklyn eatery with a commitment to sustainability and low waste. So much so that their appetizer bite will be made entirely of fish scraps that usually end up in the compost- we know, sounds weird, but we promise it will taste great - and is good for our planet to boot!

Enjoy that official start to summer by watching the sun dip below the manhattan skyline as we feast. Beach beer in hand, wine glass in the other (hey - we’re not judging) That’s how you celebrate the summer solstice.

ABOUT ORION

He met the founding partners of Greenpoint Fish and Lobster through the music industry, as that was the line of work they were in at the time. Vincent Milburn knew he had a knack for cooking seafood and asked if he could lend a hand in the opening of his new restaurant. He said he’d help for 2 weeks and stayed for 9 months. With no proper training as a chef, he went back to music, only to have the kitchen call once more. He began working at Delmonicos the infamous steakhouse to learn the industry. He stayed there for the better part of the year and then took a job as head chef for the opening of 21 Greenpoint, then chef de cuisine at the infamous Five Leaves. He worked at Five Leaves for almost two years until recently when Vincent asked if he could return to the place it all started.

 ABOUT ROCKAWAY BREWING

These days, we make all our beer by hand at a brewery in Long Island City, Queens. But before that, we were homebrewing in our Far Rockaway backyards – mainly so we’d have something to sip on after a day of surfing. The times may have changed, but we still handcraft every batch with the same fresh ingredients. You can snag RBCo all over Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan – or swing by our brew house to grab a glass, fill up a growler, tour the place, and jam to some reggae.

ABOUT BEDELL CELLARS

Past, present, future.

Kip & Susan Bedell planted their first grapevines here in 1980, with Kip earning the moniker “Mr. Merlot” in Wine Spectator Magazine. IN 200, Bedell Cellars was sold to the Lynn family. Today Bedell stands at the forefront of creativity and excellence in the modern American wine industry, and is widely regarded as the benchmark winery in the eastern US.

ABOUT LEOPARD AND PEAR

Leopard and Pear is a collaboration of Erin and Eric- both celebrated chefs who earned their stripes in the pastry world. Together, they’ve teamed up to create a premiere dessert and pastry company offering unique, interactive and experiential tables. They also have an 18th century inspired tea cafe and garden opening in summer- The Awkward Scone- where house blended herbal teas, fresh pastries and sandwiches all dance with subtle infusion of aromatic herbs and florals.

ABOUT JAMES MULRY
