Brooklyn Bugs - a ten course insectual dinner


Greetings and welcome to the fun and delicious world of Brooklyn Bugs!  After hosting numerous sold out events in Brooklyn, we are thrilled to make our debut in Manhattan with our wonderful partners at Ms. Yoo.  

Once again, we will be featuring a dynamic and whimsical menu featuring ten courses by Chef Joseph Yoon of Dinner Echo!  We love introducing people to edible insects by pairing them with food that people will find appetizing and delicious.  We are advocating for people to start incorporating insects into their diet--not to eat it exclusively.  

Chef Joseph Yoon will introduce each dish and take time to answer questions that you may have regarding the dishes that he serves.  

We are very happy that a portion of the proceeds will benefit the nonprofit Farms for Orphans.  Their mission is to ensure orphaned & underprivileged children in developing countries have a sustainable source of nourishment & access to education by building the agricultural infrastructure needed to produce food & provide training in environmentally sound agricultural practices.

Scroll to the bottom to see the incredible menu!
