Roblé Ali, the Avenue chef who’s working on a reality show with Bravo (you’ll remember him from that whole “hip-hop chef” kerfuffle), tells us he’s the consulting chef at Tammany Hall, the Crash Mansion team’s revamp of the former Annex space. The space has already hosted a few parties (see photos here and here), but won’t fully open until January 27. Ali tells us his finger-food menu (no knives or forks here) will consist of “modern spins on Southern comfort food classics,” meaning country-fried steak on a stick with red-eye gravy, and chicken and waffle sliders with chipotle-maple drizzle. He says, “You might even see some gator on the menu.” And crispy gumbo rice balls, too!
