This week on The Speakeasy, Damon sits down and chats with friend Robert Newton of Seersucker in Carroll Gardens. Hear why he thinks it’s important to feature American foods and wines at his restaurant and how Southern cuisine plays such an integral role in his menu. From catfish to moonshine, Seersucker should be a destination spot for anybody in the area. Tune in and learn more about his cocktail list and the seasonal ingredients that are at the base of all of his dishes. This episode was sponsored by Cain Vineyard & Winery.


“The best way for us to advance the wine industry is to drink our own juice. Not every single wine from New York is great, but neither is every wine from France. There’s enough good wine out there made in America that you can comprise a list that’s entertaining and tasteful.”
