Watermill Brunch
The Watermill Center's Artists' Table brunch series will return on Sept. 24 at noon with a presentation by the artist Joyce Ho and food by Colin Ambrose, the chef-owner of Estia's Little Kitchen in Sag Harbor and one of the founders of the Slow Food movement on the East End.

Ms. Ho, who is now in residence at the center, is an interdisciplinary artist whose work focuses on painting, sculpture, and theater. A recipient of the 2022 Baroness Nina von Maltzahn Fellowship for the Performing Arts, she has exhibited at the 2021 Asian Art Biennial in Taiwan, the UCCA Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing, the Asia Society Museum in New York, and the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, Australia, among others.

Tickets are $100 to $250.

Rosh Hashana Menu
Loaves and Fishes has posted its menu of Rosh Hashana specialties on its website. Available from next Thursday through Sept. 25, its main dishes include grilled citrus salmon, crab cakes, pepper-crusted filet of beef, spinach and eggplant lasagna, and vegetable paella, to name a few. The list of soups, sandwiches, appetizers, sides, salads, and desserts is extensive.

The honey that will be used for several items on the menu, including honey ginger carrots and honey apple almond cake, comes from Colin Hoogerwert's Neighborhood Honey Company, whose hives are located just behind the Pike Farmstand in Sagaponack.

Rosh Hashana orders can be placed by email to [email protected] or by phone to 631-537-0555.
