STIRRING THE POT: Sip & Shuck with Seamore’s at Rosie's
WITH FLORENCE FABRICANTBuy Tickets
For years Seamore’s New York seafood restaurants have brought Montauk to the city – now, they’re headed back to the East End. This unmissable Stirring the Pot, in partnership with Rosie’s, will bring the ultimate oyster shucking and wine pairing to Amagansett. A hands-on class in opening the bivalves will be instructed by Jay Wainwright, Seamore’s owner. Guest will slurp the oysters and sample white wines from Paumanok and Palmer Vineyards to decide which is the best match for the mollusks.
