Alden & Harlow Is Hosting a Notorious B.I.G. Brunch

Get a T-bone steak, cheese eggs, and Welch’s grape.

By | Chowder |

On August 24, Michael Scelfo is resurrecting the Biggie Brunch chef Matt Jennings ran at Farmstead Providence. Along with a soundtrack dedicated to the “savior of East Coast hip-hop,” guests will be able to enjoy a la carte specials inspired by the lyrics of The Notorious B.I.G. Joining Scelfo are Jake Rojas of Rhode Island’s Tallulah’s on Thames, Sam Monsour of The Future of Junk Food, pastry chef Brian Mercury of Harvest, and Jennings, soon of Townsman in Boston.

Each chef will create two dishes to add to Alden & Harlow’s newly launched brunch menu. All dishes will be offered a la carte, alongside a trimmed version of Alden & Harlow’s brunch menu, as proof that collaboration like this isn’t just limited to Junior M.A.F.I.A. Below is the menu:
