Description

Happy New Year, ‘Nauts!

We're back! And to start us off on the right leg(s), we're bringing back an old friend. In 2017 he hosted the Gastronauts for an incredible double header dinner, in 2018 he blew up and got famous, and to start off 2019 we’re asking him back for another phenomenal experience. We’re talking about none other than Brooklyn Bugs Joseph Yoon, chef suprême la cuisine de l'entomophagie.

And this feast won’t be a “Waiter, there’s a cricket on top of my steak!” kind of entomophagy experience. No, this dinner will be the real deal. Rather than cast them as supporting actors, Joseph excels at making the insects take center stage of a dish. For this one-of-a-kind dinner, he’ll go all out, bugs all the way, baby. Insect protein and vegetables only. If you’ve ever wanted to know if this can work, now’s your chance. Take a look at the insane menu.

A dinner like this will require liquid courage but we're making this one BYOB. We'll email you wine and beer recommendations. Or you can enjoy stumping your oenophile friends by asking them what pairs best with Scorpions...
