Motown Brunch Brought Soul and Quiche to the Design District
|Compliments to the chef!|
Leonardo Valencia revived a musical brunch this weekend, which he started years back in Brooklyn when he had both money and cooking skills, and his friends didn't. And yesterday, along with Patti Hernandez and Kathryn Marks, he fed hungry music lovers at the end/SPRING BREAK's gallery space in the Design District.
It had the vibe of of a friendly, post-church gathering. George Owen took on the task of providing the best of Motown, while people munched away to the sounds of The Supremes. "Motown paved the way for modern music," he said, "It was real. The artists touched on subjects others wouldn't dare speak about. There was no lying in it... It was rebel music." At Sunday brunch, that rebellion was as delicious, melodic, and chill as the mimosas.
