There is no cuisine that is more American than Soul Food. There are no people who are more significant to the creation of American culture (at least the cool stuff) than African Americans. Soul Food is the result of practical and creative adaptation of African eating to the New World. Created from ingredients that black people like to eat the most, all around the world, this recipe tips it’s hat to the Afro American origins of awesomeness.

Bright, warm, and generous as the summer sun, our amazing server Melissa. Nothing is more important in life than being at the service of others. Here, Melissa is about to present our $35 fifteen course menu called the Future Sushi Especial. It showcases some of the best of what I have created over the last fifteen years.

HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEARS!
In honor of Chinese New Years, and my great friends Rabbi Jim and Elana Ponet, we have created you this most excellent sushi roll.

 
THE LOST TRIBE OF CHIANG ROLL 
One thousand year old duck egg (peat moss-preserved), figs, dates, raisins, sheep milk feta (Butterfeild Farm), pomegranate cinnamon, spicy red pepper, honey, pistachio extra virgin olive oil 2 pieces for 10 
The Chiang Min people of Northwest China claim to be descendants of Abraham. This is my interpretation of their version of sushi that incorporates a traditional preserved Chinese duck egg and the Seven Species of the Hebrew Bible, and was created with chef/Yale graduate Micah Fredman. This roll was created in honor of Rabbi Jim Ponet and Elana Ponet, who are so wise they must really be Chinese.

CHEROKEE SUMAC LOVE POTION is, finally, available!
Wild sumac berries that I foraged in the late summer, when their flavor is the sweetest and most complex are, finally, available after a slow six month fermentation period. Native Americans used to drink sumac during the winter and the vitamin C in it helped them fight scurvy.
