Nothing says summer in New York like a big plate of oysters on the half-shell and a glass of well-chilled wine. Chef Jason Audette and resident wine-geek Michael Fisher will teach you how to make the magic happen at home--from the basics of picking oysters at the store and shucking them (safely!) for your friends to pairing them with a few different kinds of wine. We'll get you set to kick your next summer get-together up to the next level--including a shucking-knife and a safety glove to take home with you--then leave you to enjoy the dozen you shucked yourself and a glass of whichever one of the wines you liked best. And when you're done.... stay for our awesome oyster happy hour!
When & Where
Contrada is a neighborhood restaurant in the East Village committed to the idea of conviviality. We believe in the power of friends and even strangers coming together around a table--for food, for wine, for the exchange of ideas and the airing of dreams, for long talks that stretch into the night. Our food is Mediterranean inspired and East Coast executed; and our guests are from all walks of life--theater-goers, foodies, readers and writers, artists, climbers, bon vivants of all kinds.
