On, the chef also wrote:

The evening was fantastic and inspiring – from the decorations, to the food, to the band, and the guests. The dinner celebrated spring and we used the season’s tastiest ingredients. Spring is an amazing time of year for food, with vegetables like rhubarb and spring onion shooting out of the ground and bringing vitality to the kitchen and to the plate. It was an honor to host the event and to share the food with the President, his team, and all the guests at our restaurant.

  1. Talk about flaunting your wealth. What a shame. Most people in Harlem can’t even afford to eat at this restaurant. They act like they are trying to interact with the people of Harlem and then only have people who can afford a $30,800 dinner. Should have had a benefit where these people paid their money and then passed out food to the poor.
