Ferran Adrià and José Andrés Surprise the Crew at Island Creek Oyster Bar


Grub Street hears that Ferran Adrià and José Andrés supped and slurped at Island Creek on Sunday night. But we also hear that Jeremy Sewall, Skip Bennett, Garrett Harker and Tom Schlesinger-Guidelli had the night off. Tragedy! According to Harker: "You sweat … you feel physically ill," when guys like Adrià and Andrés show up and you’re not there to orchestrate. Just the same, the duo enjoyed shucked oysters, grilled razor clams, and plenty of champagne. (Also, manager Melissa Romanos speaks fluent Spanish, so she was able to communicate the team’s regrets.) We’re told that the jovial chefs left the guys a nice note.
