See the official menu for Chef Grant Soto’s “Night of Gravitas” (vomitorium not included)

The menu for “A Night of Gravitas,” a charity dinner on a boat hosted by the local Internet troll “Chef Grant Soto” (also known as Taylor Clarke, the man looking for his own TV show), has been revealed. Guests will start with hors d’oeuvres like devilled eggs with smoked salmon roe, dry aged steak tartare on potato chips and fried haloumi with tomato chili preserve and mint. Then there’s a raw bar, which is said to boast cracked lobsters, oysters, tiger shrimp, snow crab claws, mussels, tuna, snails, scallops and king crab legs. And then there’s a family-style dinner that includes braised oxtails, roasted bone marrow, grilled octopus, buttered potatoes, smoked bacon-wrapped peaches with grilled corn, soft-shell crab po-boys, fried chicken and lobster with chanterelle grits and pimento cheese and more. And, believe it or not, there are donuts and a variety of gelatos for dessert. Guests from the dinner on a boat will either sink the large water vehicle or will need to be rolled out. (We’re almost certain it’ll be the latter, but with the decadent meal Matty Matheson, Craig Harding and Geoff Hopgood are preparing, we can’t be sure.) See the full menu [The Grid] »
