The Brooklyn Navy Yard - once regarded as America's premier shipbuilding facility, rich with history and unbelievable views of Manhattan - is now home to a unique cluster of artisans and independent businesses including NYC's oldest operating whiskey distillery!
It's an amazing place to celebrate and congregate, and two neighboring tenants of the yard - Parker Red and Kings County Whiskey Distillery - are joining forces with national non-profit Slow Food NYC to throw a great party filled with local, made-from-scratch fare in one of Brooklyn's unique venues.
Parker Red is the catering and events division of Ted & Honey, specializing in carefully crafted American-driven farm-to-table cuisine. The Kings County Whiskey Distillery grows its own corn and barley onsite and creates its own moonshine and bourbon. Slow Food NYC works to create a food system based on the principles of high quality and taste, environmental sustainability, and social justice . . . in essence, a food system that is good, clean, and fair.
Travel from farm to table with us!
