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.
