Close your eyes and imagine for a second. Think about that feeling of walking the streets of NYC looking for that late night meal, visualize the neon flicker of the "open until midnight" signs while taking in the arousing aroma of sexiness that the late night brings. Now mix in the classical sounds of a violinist playing in the background as you take your first bite...
Join us for an intimate tasting of International Modernist Cuisine by Chef KPE with a performance by singer and violinist, Marques Toliver.
On September 28, Chef KPE will cook an exclusive, five-course “Midnight Snack” inspired tasting menu at Suite ThreeOhSix. This is will be a modern take on your favorite midnight snacks (popcorn, leftover carryout, late night coffee run, etc).
Proceeds from the event will go toward the International Rescue Committee - [www.rescue.org].

The modernist food movement is blowing the lid off traditional cooking, and rising culinary star Executive Chef KPE (Kristopher Patrick Edelen) is leading the way. In February 2014, Chef KPE launched HOTPANnyc™, which is rapidly gaining traction from a clientele of foodies, celebrities, food historians and the president himself. Merging art, science, music and fashion to create adventurous and multi-sensory recipes, the 23-year-old chef is on a trajectory to reinvent American cuisine as we know it.
While Marques Toliver seemed to burst onto the scene via the UK with an arresting performance on “Later With Jools Holland”, and a declaration from Adele as her “new favorite artist,” his story begins many years ago in Florida. It was there he began his training in classical violinist at the age of 10, and would later enroll in music school. Frustrated with academia however, and keen to throw him-self into the real world of music making. Toliver took a leap of faith and traveled to New York City. Through busking in subways and working as a freelance musician, he was noticed by and quickly made friends with fellow artists. Soon enough he found himself playing live and on records for the likes of Holly Miranda, Grizzly Bear, and Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson.
