Farm to Fork on the Roof

Thursday, August 15, 2013 (6:30pm to 10:30pm)

Travel from farm-to-table with us!

The Brooklyn Navy Yard - once regarded as America's premier shipbuilding facility — rich with history and unbelievable views of Manhattan — is now home to a unique cluster of artisans and independent businesses including NYC's largest rooftop farm! It's an amazing place to celebrate and congregate, and two neighboring tenants of the Yard are joining forces with Slow Food NYC to throw a great party filled with local, made-from-scratch fare in one of Brooklyn's most unique venues.

Parker Red is the catering and events division of Ted & Honey, specializing in carefully crafted, American-driven, farm-to-table cuisine. Brooklyn Grange is a 65,000-square-foot rooftop farm atop building number 3 at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

Partake in a unique experience that will begin with libations and small bites amidst the bounty of the Brooklyn Grange farm and hear from the founding farmers themselves as they speak about the history and future of the rooftop farm. 

As the sun sets, carry your glass and fresh-picked produce into the Parker Red kitchens where Executive Chef Christopher Jackson will talk through the night's preparations. While the culinary team whips up dinner, we invite you to enjoy additional cocktails and mingle with your fellow guests in the café and event space in BLDG 92, before sitting down to enjoy an interactive three-course dinner; one that will incorporate not only the freshest ingredients, but seasonal flavors as well.
