30 Years of the Water Club

Aaron Bashy

The Water Club, New York, NY

With classics like lobster thermidor and contemporary favorites like oyster martinis with bitters, it’s no wonder that the Water Club has been around for 30 years. To mark this special anniversary, Le Bernardin alum chef Aaron Bashy has created a menu of the Water Club’s greatest hits, past and present.
