The website for Conni's Avant Garde Restaurant states:
"Our events mix the ingredients of fine food, drink, song, dance, text, spectacle, and most importantly: you. As our guest, you will enter a lively and welcoming social environment and enjoy a five-course, home-cooked meal presented through exquisite performances. In the world of Conni’s Restaurant, as in a turn of the century Parisian salon, artists rule and fascinating people come together to celebrate life, food and all that is good."
I was an honored guest last night at Conni's Avant Garde Restaurant,
and this was the delicious menu:
Foccacia* with ricotta**, honey, and pumpkin seeds
Moussaka with lemony spinach-feta rice
layered eggplant, potato, cheese, spiced ground beef, and yogurt custard. Vegetarian option available.
Chocolate brownie*** topped with fresh blackberry compote and cream
*from Rucola Brooklyn, mmm! www.rucolabrooklyn.com **Salvatore Bklyn, double mmm! www.salvatorebklyn.com
***The Treats Truck, triple mmm! www.treatstruck.com
It was awesome.
I am so happy that I went; it was a thought-provoking, hilarious, and memorable avant garde experience. Go! Now! They have a dramaturg character, who will give you the legit definition of the avant garde! The event is happening Thursdays through Sundays through September 25th, at the beautiful Irondale Center in Brooklyn.
