WYLIE DUFRESNE + MARK LADNER 

October 23 - November 23
A Five Week Mixologist Residency at R17 Rooftop Lounge
89 South St. New York, NY 10038 

Two chefs, five mixologists and one seriously fun rooftop location. Shake and stir, mix and mingle. It all adds up to five weeks of deliciousness when Seaport Food Lab Remixed comes to Pier 17 this fall.

This year, we’re mixing things up — pairing iconic NYC chefs Wylie Dufresne and Mark Ladner with five of the country’s top mixology talents for weekly cocktail parties featuring innovative, cocktail-forward menus.

Each week of Seaport Food Lab Remixed sees a new mixologist take the helm, putting their skills to work alongside Dufresne and Ladner, who will create bites to complement the cocktails.

Tickets are $150 which includes a set menu of food and beverages.
