Claus Meyer is a world-famous food activist, cookbook author, professor and TV host. A founder of the New Nordic cuisine philosophy, his Copenhagen restaurant Noma was rated the Best in the World 4 times (!) since 2010.
So it was pretty cool the other day when he showed up at Sherwood Mill Pond. He visited the Northrop family’s Hummock Island house, accessible only by boat — the base of operations for their famous oyster farm.
He and a few of his chefs sat with the Northrops, discussing the finer points of oystering.
But that’s not the whole story.
Meyer invited Jeff and his son (Jeff Jr.) to be part of his food operation in Grand Central Terminal.
That’s the 16,000-square foot Great Northern Food Hall in Vanderbilt Hall, which has taken the historic landmark by storm.
Which is why — all week long — commuters, other travelers and food lovers of all kinds have been stopping in at the Hummock Island Oyster pop-up bar.
They’ll be there through
next Thursday (December 22) tomorrow (Friday, December 16) from 4-8 p.m.
That’s good news for Westporters heading home via Grand Central.
But if you’re not — heck, even if you are, but you love Hummock Island oysters — you can get them at Pearl at Longshore, any day of the week.
