Sustainable Seafood Dinner at Harper’s in Dobbs Ferry


We hear so much about local and seasonal cooking when it comes to agriculture, but we don’t give as much thought to the seasonal (and sustainable) methods we should also be using when it comes to seafood. Chef Chris Vergara, chef owner of Harper’s in Dobbs Ferry and Meritage in Scarsdale is doing just that with a dinner tomorrow evening.

Tomorrow evening, he’s preparing a four-course dinner with sustainable seafood caught off the coast of Montauk, and donating 10 percent of the proceeds to the Blue Ocean Institute. The fish comes from Sea To Table, a purveyor of responsibly sourced seafood. The dinner costs $75, $30 more if you’d like a wine pairing. The menu is after the jump.
