Sweet Chick celebrated a year on Bedford Avenue last night and The Chef showed up. No, not the chef who was sending out “sloppy duck” sliders all night. We’re talking The Chef — Raekwon of Wu Tang Clan. The restaurant that’s taking over the Max Fish space shut down all the haters, as several of the Fish’s regulars rolled through during the course of the evening — and then Raekwon, dropping in at the behest of owner John Seymour, blew up the tiny joint with a performance of Wu Tang’s “C.R.E.A.M.” (which, for a moment, stood for Chicken Moves Everything Around Me) and his own “Ice Cream.”
Watch the video above and, below, peep the pride of Staten Island enjoying some chicken and waffles. (That is, of course, Hennessy in his mason jar.)
So when will you be able to experience Sweet Chick’s hangover-helping brunch on Ludlow Street? A rep from the restaurant says it’s looking like late April or early May.
