Local Purveyors Recreate 1800’s Saloons’ “Free Lunch”

The Tenement Museum will host a special tasting tour on Tuesday evening, inspired by the old saloon tradition of  offering a “free lunch” with the purchase of a beer. Jane Ziegelman, the author of 97 Orchard Street, will discuss the types of food that typically “fed the patrons at historic Gotham saloons.” Edible Manhattan teams up with the Brooklyn Brewery and local purveyors to recreate the lunch offerings: smoked herring, pickled oysters, ham, pretzels, rye bread and sausage. A building tour is included. $25 // 6:30pm // 108 Orchard Street.
