Creole (www.creolenyc.com) is known for its quality food and music and for bringing Jazz & R&B back uptown. Located in the heart of East Harlem, its ambiance is reminiscent of the nostalgic early jazz supper clubs that spawned the careers of countless jazz and blues artists who went on to make history. At Creole, one is immediately comforted by warmth and hospitality, as well as international cuisine, which features dishes such as blackened spice catfish, sweet potato beignets, and 20 variations of classic gumbo. Proprietor Kevin Walters prides himself on this unique environment that marries art, music, culture, entertainment, food and a sense of community in one location.
Please join us for this special engagement - to see and hear Gordon Edwards in performance.
