Chef’s special!

Industry City is bringing the culinary goods to Sunset Park as Edible Brooklyn and Manhattan’s world class restaurant Gramercy Tavern will host Chef’s Lab, a one-day pop-up, on Sunday, June 10, featuring brunch with all the delicious eats and cocktails for which Gramercy Tavern is renowned.

Meg Savage of business development and experiential initiatives for Edible Brooklyn is excited to collaborate once again with the massive and growing waterfront complex.

“We did our first event in January,” she said. “We have a long standing relationship with Industry City and we had this idea to bring in influential chefs and restaurants and create a unique experience.  We’re doing them throughout the year.”

This event promises to be different from the previous two which featured dinner. This time, the main focus is brunch.

“The focus will be on their pastries and cocktails so the head pastry chef Miro Uskokovic is spearheading the menu for the brunch and their head bar manager Ben Howell is making cocktails for each dish they serve.”

The first of four courses is Pea and Radish Salad with whipped ricotta, lemon and mint. The next featured dish is Kim Chi Shakshuka, with shrimp, cheddar, and buckwheat pita. The third course is Green Waffles and Buttermilk Fried Chicken. The final course is Miro’s Pastry Basket with seasonal jams and cultured butter.

“Gramercy is high end and a bit of aspirational restaurant, but this is going to be a far more approachable way of dining at the Gramercy Tavern,” Savage said.

Renowned chef Michael Anthony will also be involved in the event.

Tickets are $75 for a multi-course meal with cocktails. Everything is included and guests can expect a cocktail waiting for them upon arrival.

“It’s a full dining experience,” Savage said. “Afterwards, we are opening up a courtyard in Industry City. They have a lot of games like shuffleboard. It’s just a fun Sunday. It’s a way for people who haven’t experienced Industry City before to come check it out. We love working with them because we see them not only as a hub for innovation but also as a hub for some of the best food makers, so we are really trying to get people to see it as a culinary destination as well. Chef’s Lab is just adding to that.

“What excites us most about this is that Brooklyn is a culinary destination but really only certain areas in the borough are seen as that, and it’s nice to be able to bring people to Sunset Park and also have these opportunities and fine dining events available to the Sunset community,” she said.
