Overview

Join us for another edition of Dorthaan’s Place, the legendary jazz brunch series curated by Newark’s First Lady of Jazz, Dorthaan Kirk.

Grab an omelet, sip a mimosa and enjoy the piano stylings of Cyrus Chestnut, “the best jazz pianist of his generation” (Time). Taking a break from touring the world’s clubs, concert halls, and jazz festivals, he’ll stop by NICO Kitchen + Bar for a musical brunch that’s not to be missed. See why The New York Times calls Cyrus “a wildly imaginative improviser whose solos are free-associative delights, full of dark and swinging riffs, rumbling low notes, and splatters of upper register tickles.”

There are two brunch seatings: 11 AM (music begins at 11:30 AM) and 1 PM (music begins at 1:30 PM). Dorthaan’s Place will sell out! Reserve your spot now.
