Continuing its tradition of matching great wines with great food, theRIVERHEADPROJECT will team up with Empire State Cellars to create a series of monthly dinners pairing a New York wine with family-style cuisine.
There’s a lot of information here about what’s going on in March at the Riverhead Project for colorectal cancer awareness, but it’s worth a read to find out the many ways you can donate to a good cause and put yourself in the running for some great prizes. And if you like the ceremony of the Academy Awards, the restaurant has a great way to celebrate. Dress up and walk the Blue Carpet.
Trending topics that have kicked off the month of February on the East End of Long Island are the arctic blasts and the Riverhead Farmers Market — polar opposites: an oppressive freeze and a nourishing thaw.
If summer is the season for working hard in the food and restaurant business, winter is the time when cooks and restaurateurs on both forks test new dishes, menus and promotions.
Oktoberfest is hosted in Munich, Bavaria, Germany, but you’re currently in New York. No sweat, though. You can still celebrate with Oktoberfest Bestfest, Edible’s compilation of five Oktoberfest-themed events.
Although the East End is small portion of our entire island, we still represent when it comes to food. Don’t just take our word for it. Newsday knows it too.
It’s been a busy couple of weeks in the East End kitchens, as many restaurants are ushering in new chefs.
This past May, we attended an unforgettable wine-pairing dinner in the refurbished bank vault below the Riverhead Project restaurant. The meal featured 8 different roses from Channing Daughters, each paired with a course from Chef Gregory Ling–hamachi “meatballs” with merlot rose, baby beets with refosco rose. And now, for the fall and winter, the restaurant is reviving this concept with Sunday winemaker pairing meals dubbed the Wine Project.
To kick off the upcoming summer when many of us switch to red wine Channing Daughters Winery will hold a “Molti Rosati” dinner at the Riverhead Project.
Where some might see a defunct bank building, Dennis McDermott sees a path lined with grapevines, a double-sided fireplace, the marble floor he’s always wanted (but couldn’t afford), a bank vault that doubles as a speakeasy-like cocktail bar and private dining room, and crowds of people lounging outdoors, Palm Springs-style, while supping on tapas, oysters and other casual comestibles.
