9-Course Ode To Mexico City Brunch Feast
It's been almost 9 months since our last event at Xixa. So, we figured we were overdue for another event with one of our favorite hosts - Chef Jason Marcus. This time however, Chef Marcus has created a special Mexico City inspired brunch for us. This is an entirely new concept for him, as Xixa doesn't serve brunch typically. But, we have a strong feeling he'll be just fine! For those of you who are unfamiliar with XIxa, pronounced "Shiksa", it's the NY Times Critics' Pick and 2017 Michelin Bib Gourmand selection where Chef Marcus gets to explore his enduring love for Mexico City's culture and cuisine. We'll be taking over the entire restaurant for this event, and Chef Marcus will be coming out to introduce the dishes and share stories!
About the Host:
