Daymond John got together with his good friend Chef Marcus Samuelsson at the terrific new restaurant, Hav & Mar, located at New York's 11th avenue and 26th street.
As I walked in, I found out immediately why this place is known as Marcus’s focused seafood restaurant. The different assortment of seafood dishes are "through the roof."
Daymond and Marcus walked in together, they then marched right to the kitchen.
Chef de cuisine Fariyal Abdullahi met them both.
The work began.
Chef Marcus was not afraid to let our new Chef Daymond try his hand at some of the seafood dishes that they were coming up with. By the look on his face I could tell that Daymond was getting hungrier by the second, especially with every different dish that the two great chefs were creating.
When Daymond and Chef Marcus finally sat down Daymond exclaimed how hungry he was. His actions in attacking the food spoke louder than his words.
After the filming was over the film crew and I were then well-fed.
I understood why Daymond loved the food. It was incredible.
It was really fun to watch and listen to these two individuals, who happen to be good friends, talk about life and their beginnings.
To hear Daymond John, who most of us know from his great CNBC show "Sharktank," talk about the Bronx and his love of Hip Hop.
The fact that Hip Hop was born in the Bronx and he is a true Bronx boy.
This writer loves Daymond John because like me he comes from the poorest Congressional District in the United States and was never afraid to give it his best shot to make something of himself. He is someone that I consider as representing the true American Dream.
Daymond just completed his first Childrens book, "Little Daymond Learns to Earn."
The book is a fun teaching tool for parents to help their kids learn about responsibility and finances.
This writer, being someone who has had a few books published, I can honestly say that a work focused on children, like this, has never been done before.
I’m upset I didn’t think of it myself.
Well, I guess that’s why he’s the man on "Sharktank."
This episode of "Homeplate N.Y." will be on at the end of the month.
Please make sure to catch it because this segment offers a whole lot of fun.
Special thanks to Chef Marcus Samuelsson for your great hospitality at your beautiful new restaurant!
