Just nine months after North Brooklyn Farms dismantled its plot at Havemeyer Park, it’s returning at a new location and hosting some al fresco, farm-to-table dinners.
Next month, it’ll open the Farm on Kent just across from its former location. A website says the new plot, within the footprint of the old Domino Sugar refinery complex, at Kent Avenue and South 4th Street, will host “weekly farmstands, dinner series, volunteer and education opportunities.” The farm’s Sunday Suppers ($75 a pop, including booze) promise three-course meals that employ seasonal ingredients sourced from a maximum of 20 feet away.
Another series will be produced by Food Karma Projects, the company owned by Jimmy Carbone of Jimmy’s No. 43 in the East Village. According to an announcement that went out today, Food Karma Feasts will pair renowned chefs, local ingredients, live music, and drinks by craft breweries and distilleries. Among the participating chefs are Robbie Richter (original pitmaster at Fatty Cue and Hill Country BBQ) and George Weld and Evan Hanczor of Egg Restaurant in Williamsburg.
The announcement promises a “relaxed, interactive experience,” with chefs and suppliers on hand and seating available in the form of communal tables, cafe tables, and even rugs and pillows for a truly earthy experience.
The lineup for the series, which kicks off July 16, can be found here. Tickets ain’t cheap (you’ll have to dig up $85), but keep in mind that includes booze and a hell of a view.
