First, the Red Hook Patio Grill is BACK. Get your pitch-perfect summer lunch here, and delve into Chef Mitchel London’s classic, fantastic cooking on the waterfront overlook sweeping views of the Statue of Liberty. Barbecued local Murray’s chicken, legendary burgers, corn on the cob, famous lobster rolls, baby back ribs, clams on the half shell, grilled lobster, and more…and to end in style, Mitchel’s knock-your-socks-off strawberry shortcake. Oh man. Visit us Saturdays and Sundays this summer from 11am to 8 pm.
Second, take the scenic route to Red Hook. A FREE ferry service is kicking off! The expanded Red Hook Summer Ferry will run between Pier 11 in Lower Manhattan and Van Brunt Street (right by Fairway!). Catch the ferry from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend, including the Mondays of Memorial Day and Labor Day. Check out the schedule here. Hop on!
Fairway is, indeed, the be-all and end-all, but don’t limit your Red Hook visit to our lovely store. Red Hook is a charming, remarkable seaside neighborhood full of restaurants, bars, and shops with a lot of soul. Hurricane Sandy hit Red Hook hard, and the community is still fighting to get back on its feet. We are honored to call Red Hook home and to support Restore Red Hook. Get involved in this important effort here, and enjoy the sights, sounds, and flavors of an incredible place.
This Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26 from 11 am to 3 pm we will be celebrating with food demos, a DJ, and face painting for kids. It’s going to be a great day in Red Hook. See you there!
