Fishes at the Fort

Come out for an evening of local seafood, delicious cuisine, and community at “Fishes at the Fort,” a fundraiser, dinner, and auction to support the nonprofit organization Eating with the Ecosystem, a nonprofit dedicated to promoting a place-based approach to sustaining New England’s wild seafood. Guests will experience the best of Rhode Island’s local and underserved seafood as four chefs come together to prepare a four-course dinner that celebrates local seafood, ocean ecosystems, and fisheries. Indulge in a culinary journey crafted by Josh Berman of Little Fish Food Truck and JB Cuisines, Jason Timothy of Troop PVD, David Standridge of the Shipwright’s Daughter, and Lucie Moulton of Gourmet Goddess. The evening will begin with a cocktail hour, oyster raw bar, and seafood appetizers and will continue with a four-course dinner paired with wines selected by Maria Chiancola of Newport Wine Cellar & Gourmet. During dinner, there will be a live auction led by David Dadekian, board member of Eating with the Ecosystem and owner of Eat Drink RI. There will also be plenty of opportunity to meet and learn from local fishers and harvesters who bring fresh, responsibly caught seafood to our tables and scientists who work to protect marine ecosystems. Due to the limitations of the venue, Eating with the Ecosystem is unable to accommodate alternative menu/allergen requests other than a vegetarian option. Tickets to this event are $250.
