"What makes a Con’Con perfect? It should be impeccably crunchy, but not burnt, and that’s EXACTLY what you’ll get when ordering the Con’Con served with a jollof eggplant curry at @chefsclubny... Come see for yourself! 🍚 #chefs #residency #newyork"

"Roti is my heart. It's the bread I would have during summers in Barbados on family vacations or right in my aunt's backyard in Queens. This is my journey for over the last 5 years: my family's roti, chickpea purée, eggplant date dip, scallion pine-nut dressing (inspiration from India, Israel, Ghana, Singapore). Come see me at @chefsclubny! We turning the heat up in #nolita 💥 Reservations on @opentable"
