Watershed Oyster Roast w/ DC Brau Friday, Nov. 18

Watershed (1225 1st St NE) is hosting monthly dinner parties with live music and DC Brau.  We attended their October fish fry and really enjoyed the delicous fare, the cold Braus, and the music.  BYT had a nice write up with some great photos of the event.  The November event promises more of the same fun with an Oyster roast, live music, and DC Brau on Friday, November 18, at 7 pm.  If you live in 20002, the price is only $75 for a party of two, which is an incredible deal based on what we saw last month.  Nonresidents are welcome at $75 a piece, which for a delicious all inclusive feast with drink & entertainment is a pretty good deal too.  The full event announcement and menu follow:

At Todd Gray's Watershed, our September Clambake and October Fish Fry were a blast. So, we're really looking forward to our November Oyster Roast! Our new oyster shucker, Will Sexton will ply his considerable expertise at this event. He acquired these skills in several distinguished Charleston, SC seafood restaurants before joining our Watershed family in September.

Our Oyster Roast menu:

• Selection of East Coast Oysters Roasted from the Grill

with Drawn Lemon Butter and Horseradish

• Classic New England Clam Chowder

• Rosemary Buttermilk Biscuits

• Annie’s Southern Fried Chicken

• Baked Potatoes with Vermont Cheddar, Smoked Bacon & Sour Cream

• Iron Skillet String Beans with Toasted Almonds & Sweet Onions

• Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding

Again we'll feature beer by our popular local brewery, DC Brau. Simo, our bar manager is designing a special cocktail menu featuring Boyd & Blair, an excellent potato-based vodka we just discovered. He already dreamed up this unique concoction for our new “Boyd & Blair Hour” bar menu (available Mon.–Fri., 5–7 p.m. at Watershed):

The Boyd & Blair:

Boyd & Blair Potato Vodka
Lavender Bitters, Horseradish, Lemon Sour, Red Ink Splash

The Billy Triplett Trio will play their blend of “down home organic original and cover folk rock bluegrass jams.” And, to keep everyone toasty for this al fresco event, we'll tent the patio and crank up the heat lamps!

Wateshed wants to be a "a neighborhood gathering place" and in that spirit, for the Oyster Roast, our regular, all-inclusive rate is $75 per person—but it’s $75 for two NoMa/20002 neighbors. For all details, please visit the Watershed events page. For reservations, please email them.
