Afrika Bambaataa Celebrates the Opening of Brooklyn’s Maimonide
This past Wednesday an army of influential folks, party-goers, and foodies, gathered at Brooklyn’s newly launched restaurant–Maimonide or M.O.B to celebrate the vegetarian/vegan venue.
At the soiree, invitees were treated to “avant-garde vegetarian food for carnivores,” drinks, dancing, and a very special appearance from Afrika Bambaataa. Bambaataa’s appearance, not surprisingly giving his legendary status as a hip-hop influencer, who is often referred to as the Godfather of Hip Hop, drew excitement from the eccentric group. And, he graciously snapped pictures with the clearly happy guests before launching into an amazing DJ set. The set had the revelers dancing like it was 1999.
Maimonide is the brain child of Cyril Aouizerate and features delicious creations from French chef Alain Senderens as well as executive chef Neal Harden. It is conveniently located in near Brooklyn’s Atlantic center.
