In honor of the Notorious B.I.G’s 18th death anniversary New York restaurant chefs Chris Jaeckle and Dale Talde have collaborated to create a six-course menu inspired some of the Brooklyn emcee’s bars at the restaurant All’onda.
For an appetizer, patrons can taste spiced tomato soup, inspired by his line “V8 juice drinkin, Slim Fast blendin” from his song “F–k Me.” Foodies can then munch on cracked pepper jerk crab and lobster toast, which Big mentioned on “I Love the Dough” when he rapped “country house, tennis courts, and horseback ridin’, decidin’: cracked crab or lobster?” Then comes a serving of butter poached escargot, which he famously rapped about on “Hypnotize” when he said “Escargot my car go 160 swiftly, wreck it buy a new one, your crew run run your crew run run.”
Biggie also had a love for patties from the Jamaican spot Golden Krust, so Jaeckle and Talde cheffed up curried oxtail patties, pickled scotch bonnet and ginger relish. For dessert, G.O.A.T. milk cheesecake, strawberry jam, cola caramel is served as they channeled his love for Junior’s Cheesecake, which he usually ate with a Coca-Cola on the side.
This menu will be served from 5:30 p.m to 10:30 p.m at All’onda in 22 east 13th street in Union Square. It will cost you $85.
