Questlove Launches Catering Business


The Roots drummer Questlove aka ?uestlove aka Questo aka Ahmir Thompson has just added another title to his resume – Caterer. With the little bit of free time that he has when he’s not drumming for The Roots, being the band leader for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, producing various albums, guest drumming on albums, DJ’ing various parties, he decided he wants to be your waiter.

Quest Loves Food is the name of his new venture that has a branch in Philadelphia and now in New York. He kicked off the New York launch with a star studded event that brought out Zoe Kravitz, Ryan Philippe, Olivia Munn, Solange Knowles, The Daily Show‘s Wyatt Cenac, porn star Sasha Grey and celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson.

It was also designed to help launch the new Bon Appetit magazine party space, BA Kitchen. Questlove DJ’ed the event while his catering company brought out various delectable delights including “Origami-Wrapped Fried Chicken Wings” which were reported by the Huffington Post as being amazing.  The other types of food that they’ll be serving isapparently a mystery as they establish themselves.
