As seen in today’s NYT:
“Have Your Brunch and Listen to it, Too.” City Winery’s Klezmer Brunch, which runs every Sunday morning, featuring some of the world’s greatest Klezmer and Jewish music performed, was profiled as part of an article on popular musical brunches with a difference.
Jazz Brunches, Gospel Brunches, and even Latin brunches from venues from around NYC were profiled, however the Times zoned in on the novel “modern Jewish fare, like a $15 pastrami scramble, or flat bread (pizza) with cream cheese, Nova Scotia lox, capers and red onions.” at City Winery’s weekly Klezmer Brunch. Also discussed was the importance of Klezmer music as “a strain of instrumental Eastern European folk music, is a fading language.”
Each week is a new opportunity to enjoy great Klezmer and great food with friends and family. For a chance to hear some great Klezmer music, eat some delicious traditional food, and be in cool cultural environment, please visit our website and book your reservation today. A full calender of events is available and reservations can be made online or by calling 212-608-0555.
Don’t forget to also check out the Jewish and Israeli music showcases coming to City Winery in September. Visits from David Broza, Mira Awad, Bar Mitzvah Jones and the Sway Machinery all fall within the High Holidays this year and are great opportunities to enjoy the cultural and musical programming at City Winery.
City Winery and Storahtelling will be hosting Higholidays 5771 on September 8th and 9th with services for Rosh Hashana Day and Rosh Hashana Eve and September 17th and 18th for Yom Kippur Kol Nidre and Yom Kippur Day. The Higholidays are a remix of live music, traditional and modern liturgy, interactive learning, visual media and dramatized scripture. Packages are still available for individuals and families alike to celebrate with Amichai Lau-Lavie and the storytellers and artists from Storahtelling.
