Wow. Our local fried chicken hero, Questlove of The Roots and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, has entered into a partnership with Michelin-starred chef Graham Elliot to present "?uest Loves Food" POWERED by Graham Elliot. The new joint venture is launching in May, and will be a "fully immersive experience bringing food, music and “out-of-the-box” artistry to the forefront of food curation and special events."
Of course, Questo's fried chicken Love's Drumsticks are the signature item, but Elliot will also be adding his own seasonal touches to the menu, as well as audible curations by The Afro himself.
Questo and Elliot met at Lollapalooza in 2011, where Elliot was the culinary director. Questo's food passions and their shared music obsession led to a quick friendship, and ultimately this new venture. The new project will be making appearances at industry events and food and wine festivals.
If you missed our relentless coverage of Questlove getting the shaft on Jimmy Fallon vs. Momofuku's David Chang in Battle:Fried Chicken, you should make sure to take a look.
