New York: Bobo's "Plate to Gate" Pop-Up Dinners
A meal made with summer's freshest ingredients and served outdoors is one of the season's more enjoyable luxuries, and this summer and fall, the West Village farm-to-table restaurant Bobo is serving just that with its Plate to Gate pop-up dinner series. Taking place at nearby farms, oyster beds, breweries and urban rooftops throughout New York, the gatherings are headed by James Beard Award-winning chef Patrick Connolly and restaurateur Carlos Suarez, who prepare themed menus based on location and date. The next event, on July 14 at Brooklyn Grange, will celebrate Bastille Day with French-style charcuterie, canapés and locally sourced meats and vegetables. On July 30 on Fire Island, they will host a buffet-style dinner of fresh lobster, clams, mussels, sausages, corn and potatoes, all cooked in a hot pit in the sand, followed by a post-meal bonfire.
