Fatty Crab’s Anti-Meatpacking Drunk Brunch; Maiden Lane’s Catch Herring Event

Shelsky’s Smoked Fish is expecting a shipment of a yearly treat this Friday: new catch herring, fresh off the boat from the Netherlands. The delicacy is only available for a few weeks each year. [Grub Street]

• The new catch herring is also at the center of the first of Maiden Lane’s new weekly seafood-centric series. The revelry begins on June 19 at 6 p.m. [Grub Street]

• Just around the corner from the meatpacking district, the Fatty Crab is offering a cheap “anti-meatpacking” drunch [drunk + brunch] alternative: Mix and match three cocktails for just $18. [Grub Street]

ABC Kitchen’s CSA kicks off today, promising fresh produce to 100 lucky shareholders (but there are shares still available!). CSA shareholders also get priority reservations to ABC Kitchen and ABC Cocina, as well as tips from the chefs and other benefits. [Grub Street]
