When Stoneacre Brasserie and Stoneacre Garden owners Christopher Bender and David Crowell entertain, it’s a low-key affair, despite their fine dining backgrounds and proprietorship of two Newport, Rhode Island, restaurants, both of which hold Wine Spectator Awards of Excellence. The recipes for this classic lobster boil—accompanied by green gazpacho, roasted oysters, cast-iron cornbread and a cherry trifle—are simple and straightforward, but each with a chef-y twist. The goal is a shared meal designed for easy but discerning conviviality. Read on for the recipes, along with wine pairings recommended by Bender and Wine Spectator!
