Big Shrimpin'

A first-ever outdoor shrimp boil from City Grit

  • 30 April 2012

From "have a sit down, darlin'", to "you got a purty mouth, boy", the South is well known for its hospitality.

Here to make you squeal, but with delight: City Grit, the SoHo “culinary salon”, now selling tickets to their first-ever outdoor event, a good old-fashioned shrimp boil.

The culinary brainchild of transplanted southerner Sarah Simmons — FOOD & WINE’s Home Cook Superstar and avid champion of Dixie cuisine — City Grit hosts ticketed dinners in a former Catholic school that also houses WRK Design, a reclaimed furniture design studio. The food is home-cooked and the furniture is for sale.

For the shrimp boil, Simmons & Co. will use the school’s 4,000-sq.-foot outdoor courtyard to host their fête, plating up heaping portions of boiled gulf shrimp with spicy mayo dip, house-made pork sausage, corn on the cob, potatoes, cole slaw, and fresh-baked bread with bacon butter.

If you can't make this dinner, City Grit offers a slate of events. Or, you can purchase a membership and have a seat reserved for you every Thursday night.

Seating is always communal, and small-batch wine and beer pairings are always available for purchase.

Dueling banjos not included.
