Come and Celebrate at Crema Restaurante, New York City's top destination for cutting edge Mexican fusion cuisine, is proud to announce the Crema Unplugged Concert Series, a musical movement that promotes local singers and composers on a multicultural platform hosted by Celebrity Journalist, Carlos Anaya, known as the Latino Ryan Seacrest.
The first in a series of concerts - honoring local talent and the beginning of a trend that serves to unite the community through wholesome music and food - will begin on New Year's Eve, December 31, 2011. Flamenco/Pop Musicians Axel Santiago and Kanutto Garabatto will each perform acoustic sets to bring in the new year. This will be a landmark event, marking the first ever live music show at the venue.
Crema Restaurante was recently recognized as the top Mexican restaurant in New York by CitySearch and Open Table.
