      Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month at the Riverhead Project

      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.

      Sunday Wine Dinners at the Riverhead Project

      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.

      Riverhead Renaissance

      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.
