Tuesday night I had the privelege of attending Josh Ozersky’s (Mr. Cutlets) birthday party at Harry’s on Water Taxi Beach. Unlike the previous event that I had attended there, the weather was absolutely gorgeous, and we got some great photographs as well as a cool video to show you (click for Google Video)
The party was a veritable who’s who of the foodie elite, ranging from some of the top chefs and restaurant owners in NYC to the best food writers in the entire country.
Here was the menu as presented in courses:
Grilled House-Smoked Berkshire Bacon — Scott Smith, RUB Barbeque
American Royale Championship chicken — Robert Richter, Hill Country BBQ
Pulled Pork Trio:
Traditional Pulled Pork – Robert Richter, Hill Country BBQ
Hot Chili Oil Pulled Pork — Zak Pelaccio, 5 Ninth / Fatty Crab
Porky Pork with Pork Sauce — Zak Pelaccio, 5 Ninth / Fatty Crab & Mr. Cutlets
Smoked Brisket with Marrow Jus, Rego Park Style — Robert Richter, Hill
Malaysian “Fatty Brisket” — Zak Pelaccio, 5 Ninth / Fatty Crab
Rick Schmidt ‘s Brisket — Mr. Cutlets
Five-Spice Short Ribs, Turmeric-Glazed Breast of Lamb, East Village Polish Links — Mr. Cutlets
And as if this menu wasn’t enough as it is, Harry Hawk made sure there were plenty of pork tacos and Motz Burgers to go around, just in case you were still hungry.

What the hell is Porky pork with pork sauce?
They took a ton of bacon with a lot of parsley and made like a bacon pesto out of it to top pulled pork.
