A Second Date with a Marsalis
These are companion photos to a rare mid-month Country Roads piece I wrote about my night out last week with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.
In order: the Orchestra from the sidelines during rehearsals; the "IberiaBank-tini" (for you mixologists out there: vodka, blueberry juice, vanilla extract, splash of Patron, blueberries); the braised crispy pork belly with lemon preserve, mango chutney and an apple vinegar beet reduction appetizer at Stroube's Chophouse; the grilled tuna served on a warm spinach salad with toasted garlic, lima beans, and cherry tomatoes; the view from my seat, better than this picture implies.
Read on for the gory, deconstructed details.
