Microgreens Tour, Tasting

Slow Food East End is taking reservations for a Nov. 2 tour and tasting at Good Water Farms in Bridgehampton, which produces microgreens and has just released “The Microgreens Cookbook: A Good Water Farms Odyssey.” Brendan Davison, the farm’s owner, will lead the tasting and tour and provide each visitor with a box of microgreens to take home. Small bites made by Megan Huylo, the chef at East Hampton’s Bhumi Farms, will be served. 

Reservations for the 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. event are limited and can be made at the Slow Food East End website by Oct. 31. The cost is $65.

 

Fall at Lulu

There are new specials for the fall at Lulu Kitchen and Bar in Sag Harbor. A two-course lunch prix fixe is offered on Mondays and Wednesdays through Saturdays for $26.95. The restaurant is closed for lunch on Tuesdays. A three-course dinner offer is $34.95 Sundays through Wednesdays.

Menu selections, which are subject to change, include, at lunch, a choice of French onion soup, beef tartare, or lentil salad to start, followed by a choice of sandwiches — croque monsieur or madame or tuna nicoise — or an omelette with butternut squash, arugula, and fontina cheese. Dinner entree selections may include pasta, veal osso buco, fall ratatouille, or wood-fired grilled codfish. 

During a daily happy hour from 5 to 6:30 p.m., bites can be ordered off the bar menu — from blistered shisito peppers to wild mushroom and pea shoots served with crispy cabbage, smoked butter, and bread, wood-grilled marinated artichokes, and more. 

 

Montauk Beer at M.S.G.

The Montauk Brewing Company, founded in 2012 by three young men who grew up in East Hampton, is finding continued success with increased distribution across Long Island and the New York metropolitan area. Most recently, the company announced that its beer will be served at Manhattan’s Madison Square Garden, both on tap and in cans. 

Vaughan Cutillo, a co-founder, thanked supporters in a recent press release, noting that the beer brewers had delivered their first keg by bicycle and a keg trailer just a few years ago. 

 

For Meatless Mondays

Stefanie Sacks, a “culinary nutritionist,” will present a series of workshops with instructions for “meatless Mondays” beginning next week at a private residence in Bridgehampton. The 5:30 to 8 p.m. sessions, suitable for adults as well as children ages 10 and up, will begin with a brief discussion followed by hands-on cooking instruction. Five different plant-based recipes will be prepared, and the sessions will end with a family-style meal. 

Each class costs $100. Those interested can register on Ms. Sacks’s website, reboot-food.com.
