On Saturday, October 14th, Pier A and Edible hosted 'Outside the Shell' - An Oyster and Libation Pairing Event. The event was an afternoon of freshly shucked oysters and delicious aromatic cocktails - all against the backdrop of New York Harbor. It was quite a way to kick off the fall festivities.
Edible Manhattan, the innovators behind some of the city's most desirable culinary events, invited patrons to a feast of sensory wonders dedicated to two of people’s favorite sybaritic pleasures: oysters and cocktails.
The superbly restored Beaux-Arts mansion that is Pier A Harbor House was a fittingly glamorous setting for this fabulous event, offering unforgettable views of the Statue of Liberty and the NYC coastline!
There was no other place to be than to be enjoying an array of oysters and cocktails and overlooking the New York Harbor from Pier A Harbor House. Guests sampled creamy and sweet oysters from the East End of Long Island alongside cocktails from celebrated spirit brands.
