Celebrate Latin Romania
October 14, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Celebrate our universal Latin Heritage with Ñew York Latin Culture and the Romanian Cultural Institute in New York on Wednesday, October 14 at 7pm.
Celebrate with a performance by German guitarist Christian Reichert, a tasting of fine Scorpion Mezcal from Mexico, and hors d’oeuvres by New York City’s best pan-Latin American restaurant Comodo NYC.
At Ñew York Latin Culture we study the many flavors of Latin culture every day. After several years of hitting the limits of our own cultural bias, we realize that Latin culture is a mix of every race, religion, and place on earth. To be Latin is to be part of humanity’s great mix and to cherish it.
Today, Latin culture is loved around the world. Latin culture has universal roots and also touches something universal inside us.
You don’t have to be a Latin.
Just relax and dance my Mambo. ~ Machito

Romanian Cultural Institute in New York
The Romanian Cultural Institute in New York promotes Romanian arts and culture in New York City and the United States. Headquartered in Bucharest, Romania, the Romanian Cultural Institute has outposts around the world.
Romanians are a Latin people. Though most of the modern state of Romania lies north of the Danube River, the traditional border of the Roman Empire, Rome ruled parts of what is now Romania from 106-275 CE. Listen to someone speak Romanian and you may notice how much the language sounds like Italian.
Christian Reichert is a classical guitarist from Germany who plays Spanish guitar. Reichert is a prize winner of the Andrés Segovia International Guitar Competition in Granada, Spain and other competitions across Europe. Reichert’s speciality is the classical music of Spanish and Latin American composers. A master teacher and veteran of more than 20 albums, Reichert performs as a soloist with symphony orchestras and for radio and television programs in Germany and around the world.
Scorpion Mezcal® is a premium Mezcal from Oaxaca, Mexico. It is made from 100% agave, double-distilled. Scorpion Mezcal Silver is the traditional mescal. Scorpion Mezcal Reposado and Anejo are aged in French oak to add richness and flavor. French oak adds a subtle and spicy flavor that creates a satin or silky finish.
Comodo, word for comfortable in Spanish, invites New Yorkers to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of downtown Manhattan and connect with another rhythm, a different pace, one found in the Latin American home.
The menu, executed by Felipe Donnelly, is personal, a true autobiography written in food. It is the journey of a boy, born in Madrid, and raised throughout Colombia, Mexico City and Brazil, all through the prism of New York and its current food trends.
The small 45 seat restaurant conveys the spirit and energy found in a Latin American dinner party, where food is shared and conversations go deep into the night.
