Head to Humboldt & Jackson on August 7 at 6:30 PM for the second installment of our Dinner Party series. Dinner Party No. 2 will feature Brooklyn Brewery Chef Andrew Gerson teaming up with Brooklyn Grange co-founder Ben Flanner. Over the past four years the team at Brooklyn Grange have become the world leaders in rooftop farming, tending to over 2 ½ acres of intensive green roofs in New York City that churn out a year-round supply of delicious fruits and vegetables. Their produce is sold in restaurants, groceries, farmers’ markets and CSAs, demonstrating how useful localized urban farming can be to the community as well as the environment.
Chef Gerson has been itching to work with Ben and his gang of funky urban farmers since he first set foot on their rooftops. He is particularly taken with their rogue ground cherries, which transform our Philly-born chef into a regular poet if you ask him about them. Each course will highlight the freshest harvest from the sunniest corners of Brooklyn Grange paired with some of the rarest and most interesting Brooklyn Brewery beers in our cellars for a thrilling culinary experience. Playful microgreens, succulent shiso, sungold and heirloom tomatoes, devilish peppers, opal and Thai basil herbs and more are all clamoring for a place at the table. Buy tickets below and see which ones make the cut.
