This week on The Speakeasy, Damon sits down and chats with friend Robert Newton of Seersucker in Carroll Gardens.

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.
