Thursday Sips & Nibbles

I'm back again with a new edition of Sips & Nibbles, my regular column where I highlight some interesting, upcoming food and drink events. I hope everyone dines out safely and tips well.
1) Fusion cuisine, if done well, can be delicious and fascinating. I've recently discussed Chifa cuisine, a fusion of Peruvian and Chinese cuisine which works very well. During the last several years, one of my other favorite fusion cuisines was the melding of Greek and Mexican (Grexico) cuisine offered by Committee, which unfortunately is only offered once a year, for Cinco de Mayo

It really should be offered year round, or even open a restaurant dedicated to this fusion cuisine. Chef de Cuisine Luis Figueroa has created dishes which are absolutely delicious and compelling. I highly recommend that you visit Committee on Wednesday, May 5, from 5pm-11pm.

--Grecamole (mashed avocados and herbs, feta, pita chips) $14
