Fresh Direct

Fresh from the shores of Montauk, delivered straight to the hipster streets of the East Village. Look who’s coming to dinner.

These guys will be visiting us tomorrow

And speaking of fresh, our neighbor John Leguizamo owns a giant brown poodle that doesn’t dig BuckShowalter. At all. C’mon lighten up big poodle.

Our lovable beast

See you upstate!

Wedded Bliss

September 22 is our wedding anniversary! We will be celebrating year five. The anniversary of wood. Seriously. As if we don’t have enough wood already.

Yes, this really was our cake topper

Family Business

When married to your business partner, the lines between personal and private matters are often blogged blurred.

Learning tricks from the master

September 22 is our wedding anniversary. Would greatly appreciate you fine folks providing some reservation hints to the husband. Preferably French.

See you upstate!

Love Letter III

We love the love folks. Won’t even try to deny it. In fact, we highly encourage public declaration of upstate love. Again & again.

An adorable thank you from Jenna

Our talented friends Noah & Paul shared this amazingly tasty dish with us. Technically it was leftover from their shoot, The Way We Ate. Know the way we ate that pate of chicken livers? Devoured it in less than 15 minutes.

This tasted even better than it looked!

And for those keeping score, Noah beat us (wife) in last year’s Pate Party. Think it may be time for a rematch.

See you upstate!

Field Of Dreams Part Deux

Was back at Yankee Stadium last night. This time for an actual game, not Madonna. September baseball is always exciting.

Jeter about to tie legendary Willie Mays with career hit number 3,283

While the Yankees lost 6-4 to Tampa Bay, having seats behind home plate lessened the pain.

And yet another evening of $12 beer


See you upstate!

Live Long & Lazy

We’re going upscale here at upstate craft beer & oyster bar. Well kinda sorta but not really. Serving lazy man lobster.

Plating lobster on our new fancy fish shaped plates

Lobster stuffed with roasted Jersey corn and fingerling potatoes – yum! And speaking of lazy…talking about the dog, not the husband.

No deliveries on Sunday means sleeping in

See you upstate!

Believe In Zero

Remember a couple weeks back when we (wife) were in Prague? Was for the day job. Shot a PSA for UNICEF that launches today.

Before any unimaginable idea can become real, there has to be someone who believes in it. Believe in ZERO. Please support U.S. Fund for UNICEF.

Take A Bite Out Of Crime

It’s a small world folks. Well actually Manhattan is an island, comprised of 23 square miles. Should be no surprise that our staff and customers would serve on the same jury, right?

The real question is, would you want them to? Guess it depends if you are for the prosecution or defense. Funny we always thought Charlotte was secretly Canadian. Hmmm…

Serving beers, oysters and our justice system

See you upstate!

#Catfoodcupcakes

As if we really needed a reason to proclaim our LUV of the interwebs…

Our neighbor Big Gay Ice Cream tweeted that gem and we can’t stop watching it.

“Hey! Why should I be on the internet?” 

 That guy sporting the sh*t eating grin? New Ian. You can win a date with him.

See you upstate!
