The intimate dinner invites guests to preview a private, subterranean space in the new hotel on Williamsburg’s waterfront. The Wythe Hotel [10] has transformed an abandoned red bricked factory, originally built in 1901, into a gorgeous new property and restaurant, run by Marlow and Sons.

The Garden Gather Dinner will feature a six course tasting menu, with incredible dishes made from local ingredients, such as braised heirloom red cowpeas with roasted pheasant’s back mushrooms [11] and ramps. Beverages will be provided by the nearby Brooklyn Brewery.

Guests will also have the opportunity to chat with co-president of the New York Mycological Society [12], Eugenia Bone, and Gary Lincoff, author of The Audobon Society Field Guide to North American Mushrooms [13]. Aside from incredible fare, a preview of Wythe Hotell and featured guests, the $150 tickets will help support GrowNYC [14]’s New Farmer Development Project. Foodies of New York, get your tickets here [4], and kick off the New York Food Book Fair will incredible food and conversation.
