You’re invited to a one-of-a-kind salon on Wednesday, January  15th at 7pm for an intimate dinner and conversation with Marcus Samuelsson and artist Derrick Adams. The New York-based artist, who graduated from Columbia and Pratt Universities, will be our honored guest at Ginny’s Supper Club to discuss topics focusing on the conversation between art and food. If his art seems familiar, it’s because many of his pieces have been featured at Red Rooster and last week Derrick installed 6 new works in our private dining space. The installation will live with us for at least a year. Read More
