If you've had brunch in New York, you've probably heard of Saada Ahmed. She's the co-founder of Everyday People, one of the best brunch parties in the city, bringing together amazing food, cutting-edge music, and influential people in extraordinary places all over town. And since brunch is a cultural center of gravity, so is she. Take a look at her current cultural playlist...

Favorite low-key brunch spot
Walter's. It's in my neighborhood so I can roll out of bed and go there for their fried chicken and waffles.

Most underrated art medium
Um... Hair Braiding. One of my [favorite photography books] highlights the beautiful craftsmanship of hair braiding in Nigeria.

Best museum
The Mocada. It might not be the largest, but it has the most interesting exhibitions. I do a monthly open forum discussion called Brothers & Sisters. It's worth checking out.

Best museum restaurant
Brooklyn museum café.

IG post you're most proud of
SWV singing I Get So Weak to me. It was a childhood dream come true. 

Go-to date spot
Picnic in the park.

Favorite Vegetarian Dish
Can I say three? Injera, mesir wot and vegetable samosa (ideally this would be in my picnic at the park).

Underrated color
Navy blue.

Fashion piece you can't live without
Blue jeans.

Where are you headed after this?
SoulCycle.
