Who says the fun (and good food) has to stop with the 4th of July? Stop by the Beard House next week for this special event! Thursday, July 7, 7:00 P.M. Softshell Crab Extravaganza Get ’em while you can: it’s softshell crab season, and we plan to make the most of it with a visit from seafood savant Ben Pollinger of Oceana. Accompanied by his equally lauded pastry chef and wine director, Pollinger will treat Beard House diners to a bold New American menu showcasing this summertime delicacy.
