Previous Events — Abode

"Abode can best be described as a modern twist on home-style dishes. Sarah Ashley Schiear along with chef Gregg Drusinsky (Casa Mono, Lupa, Le Bernadin) utilized local, seasonal, and sustainable ingredients wherever possible. Highlights of the dinner included scallop sashimi, baby kale salad, buckwheat noodles with guanciale, egg, and Brussels sprouts, fisherman's stew (baby cuttlefish, razor clam, blue shrimp, mussel jus), and chocolate tart for dessert. The casually intimate setting and open kitchen conspire to invite interaction with other guests as well as the chefs, who are happy to chat about the ins and outs of each dish."
