It’s Black History month and in its honor, the new Green & Fanny Dinner Series with André Mack is launching on 2/27 at 7pm at Marcus Samuelsson's Red Rooster Harlem. Named for Nathan "Nearest" Green (a slave who served as Jack Daniel's mentor and now, centuries later, has been recognized as the master distiller behind the famous whiskey brand), Fanny Hern and Edith Fossett (at ages 15 and 18 were the enslaved master chefs behind Thomas Jefferson's Monticiello kitchen at the White House), the ongoing dinner series will honor the legacy of black excellence and the untold and often overlooked stories.


The menu for the first dinner includes:

  • Cured Turnip with smoked peanut shiro, rice cracker

  • Tuna with dirty rice, bone broth, aioli, jalapeño

  • Pickled Arctic Char with hoe cake, avocado black bean

  • Lacquered Duck with all the fixin's

  • Baked Alaska with sweet potato, marshmallow, pecan


To compliment the menu, a selection of wines have been carefully chosen and will be poured by André Mack, a renowned sommelier, wine educator, winemaker, and the first African American Best Young Sommelier. The series will continue throughout the year and will feature a range of musical performers. Tickets are available for $125 click here.
