What you'll do

Event start time is 6:30pm. After checking in, you will be seated and served a traditional Ethiopian appetizer -- a choice of lentil or collard green Sambusa. You have the option of a South African red or an Italian white wine. As you await the show, you are welcome to walk around and view the artworks on display. At 7pm, your host will begin the art talk. Together with the featured artist, your host will engage with a conversation discussing the art works on display, the inspiration behind them and discussing any deeper meanings behind the pieces or art on display. There will be opportunity to ask questions of the host and artist. At 7:30pm, dinner is served. Ethiopian vegetarian combo is our featured meal, and the most traditional of Ethiopian food. The veggie combo includes a variety of stews and vegetables that are cooked in Ethiopian spices, served on injera -- a traditional Ethiopian. At 8pm the live music begins. Experience exceptional live music with a group that has been performing jazz for over 20 years in Harlem. Experience 2 sets over a 2-hr. period of authentic Harlem jazz. Artworks are for sale and price list will be provided. Feel free to take photos and videos. For any other items on the menu, feel free to order through our waitstaff.

We have built up a reputation as a cultural destination in the Sugar Hill district of Harlem. Together with delicious food, we have beautiful wall space that we use as a gallery. The gallery space has welcomed a variety of artists, local to NYC as well as international artists. I have been curating this work for the past 5 years. Prior to work at the restaurant, I have been producing a cultural showcase featuring artists, filmmakers, singers and other entertainers where I catered the food. I did this for 7 years.
