Presented by Hennessy, the star-studded experience at the new 25,000 square foot marquee location was complete with a curated menu of Brooklyn Chop House favorites along with Signature Cocktails by Hennessy, Moet, and Mary’s new wine venture Sun Goddess Wines.
The night ended with a crowd-pleasing performance of Mary’s late 90’s classics including “I Can Love You” led by Fat Joe.
Well known within the industry as the largest Black majority-owned restaurant group, 30-year music industry veteran Robert “Don Pooh” Cummins, Dave Thomas, and Director of Operations Stratis Morfogen celebrated bringing their ultra plush one-of-a-kind dining experience to the heart of the Big Apple in Times Square.
The exclusive Black tie affair came just a day after Mary and famed fashion designer/stylist Misa Hylton had a ball sitting courtside at the Nets-Celtics playoff game that trended across social media.
At one point, MJB could be seen shouting something at Kyrie Irving who stunk it up with 16 points on 6 for 17 shooting (0-7 from 3). Durant only took 11 shots, finishing with 16 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists in the losing effort that infuriated fans.
