Chef Govind Armstrong and restaurateur Brad Johnson invite one of the nation’s most heralded chefs, Marcus Samuelsson, into the kitchen at their Baldwin Hills restaurant Post & Beam to create reinvented soulful classics for one night only on Tuesday, February 26, 2013. The guest chef dinner, Red Rooster at Post & Beam: A Taste Of Harlem in Baldwin Hills commemorates Black History Month, and is ticketed at $140 per person (inclusive of tax and gratuity), featuring dishes that draw inspiration from each chef’s diverse cultural roots and chef ideology.
