Brooklyn Chop House
After a successful month-long pop-up on the East End last August, Brooklyn Chop House will return to Southampton from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend at The Capri Hotel in Southampton. Robert “Don Pooh” Cummins, Dave Thomas, and Stratis Morfogen are the ownership team behind the restaurant.
This Hamptons seasonal summertime location will complement Brooklyn Chop House’s flagship in FiDi by offering guests a vacation destination to dine in that serves Pat LaFrieda steaks alongside Asian fare like Peking Duck and a variety of unique dumplings. DJs will spin in the restaurant’s lounge on Friday and Saturday nights, in addition to Sunday during Memorial Day, July Fourth, and Labor Day weekends.
Slow Food East End
Slow Food East End will host its next Community Potluck at the Shinnecock Indian Reservation. The event aims to forge understanding and new relationships with the Shinnecock people and the East End food and agricultural community. Following a wonderful meal of dishes brought by attendees, Shane Weeks, who is a Slow Food board member, artist, educator, and member of the Shinnecock Nation, will provide a presentation. The presentation will focus on the history of the Shinnecock Nation, their sustainability practices, and who they are today.
The event will be held on Sunday, May 19, from 4 to 7 PM at the Shinnecock Community Center in Southampton. Visit www.slowfoodeastend.org to reserve.
