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.
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).
Fashion piece you can't live without
Where are you headed after this?
