Shell & Bones Oyster Bar and Grill Launches Benefit

By August 25, 2022Connecticut, Top News

Shell & Bones Oyster Bar and Grill’s Sippin’ Shelly cocktail created using Tito’s Handmade Vodka is part of a fundraising effort to benefit the James Beard Foundation.

New Haven’s Shell & Bones Oyster Bar and Grill partnered with Tito’s Handmade Vodka to launch a new cocktail and appetizer benefitting the James Beard Foundation, a nonprofit organization with a mission to celebrate, support and elevate the people behind America’s food culture and champion a standard anchored in talent, equity and sustainability. Executive Chef Arturo Franco-Camacho incorporates fresh and sustainable ingredients in keeping with the foundation’s mission. Shell & Bones is connected with the organization through its Smart Catch seal, highlighting the venue for its serving of seafood fished or farmed in environmentally-responsible ways, the only restaurant in the state currently holding the seal. The Sippin’ Shelly cocktail, which features Tito’s infused with rhubarb, berry aloe syrup and lemon, and the appetizer, a squid ink blini features gravlax, Tito’s-infused crème fraiche and macerated berries, raises funds through the end of August.
