A Fresh Culinary Concept
EatLab is a celebration of Staten Island’s culinary talent, where local chefs host one-night-only, pop-up events at the West Cork Grill, located at 500 Henderson Avenue. This unique concept offers chefs the freedom to choose between two distinct dining styles:
- Á la carte Style: This style allows chefs to showcase their signature dishes and culinary expertise. The menu features a variety of dishes, and diners can order their favorites, with pricing ranging from $25 to $75 per person.
- EVENT Style: These exclusive events are a collaboration between the hosting chef and West Cork Grill. The venue is closed off to the public for the evening, creating an intimate and immersive dining experience. Tickets for EVENT Style evenings range from $75 to $150 per person, and a party permit ensures that libations are served in compliance with the law.
The Heart of the Menu
For those who have frequented the West Cork Grill, their artisanal pizzas are a favorite. The menu boasts an array of enticing pizzas crafted with fine ingredients, prepared on-site by expert Pizzaiolos dedicated to delivering a crafted pizza experience every time. Whether you’re a pizza lover or an adventurous foodie, you’re in for a treat.
Highlights of EatLab
Here are some of the highlights that make EatLab a must-visit culinary destination:
- Chef’s Greatest Hits: Chefs participating in EatLab events select their most popular offerings, ensuring a memorable dining experience for patrons.
