WhenSunday, February 23
12:00 pm - 3:00 PM
The Festival is teaming up once more with James Beard Award-winning chef, Food Network personality, cookbook author, and this year’s Tribute Dinner honoree Marcus Samuelsson to offer guests an insider look at his new Overtown restaurant! This year, he is joined by Melba Wilson, whose eponymous soul food eatery, Melba’s Restaurant, has become a Harlem, NY staple known for its line-up of Southern cuisine. Kick-off the afternoon while checking out Samuelsson’s brand new space, then prepare for an all-American comfort brunch rooted in Southern and Caribbean cuisine. Enjoy live music while sipping on cocktails from Belvedere Vodka and Moët & Chandon champagne, while noshing on ribs, fried chicken, collard greens, and more that honor the spirit and vivacity of Harlem’s food, culture and people!
