Chefs Face the Music: Tom Colicchio With John Legend, John Mooney at Dizzy’s


Remember the Iconoclast lovefest between Michael Stipe and Mario Batali? Well, American Express is offering up something similar, live and in person. On December 9 at Craftsteak, John Legend will perform and then Tom Colicchio will join him for a conversation about creative collaboration, food and wine, and all that good stuff. It all happens over a dinner “co-created” by Legend and Colicchio. The price of this “once-in-a-lifetime” event (assuming you’re an AmEx holder) is a mere $500! Which is really only worth it if Tom shows off one of his $5,000 axes. In any case, tickets go on sale tomorrow at 3 p.m. and are available at 1-800-321-7787. Also, in another music-food pairing: John Besh in conversation with John Tesh! No, just kidding. Beard Award–winning hotel chef John Mooney will serve country-fried quail and red-velvet cheesecake at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola on November 20. For reservations, call 212-258-9595.
