Hmm. Not sure what to make of this.

An Italian-inspired restaurant in Washington, DC is planning to host a hip-hop dinner to honor slain rappers Biggie Smalls and Tupac in February. For the menu, which hit Twitter earlier this week, Graffiato is serving “thug rice,” which is cuddle fish ink risotto, crawfish, crispy clams, cauliflower. There’s also “blood money sausage” and “Chocolate Chip Blunts” on the three-course meal.

After Graffiato, chef Mike Isabella, a former Top Chef contestant, heard of the criticism of the menu, he told DCist the menu is simply a “work in progress,” reports The Grio. The menu has since been taken down with the only mention of it in this press release on the Graffiato website.

The dinner is to take place Feb. 2 and cost $65 per person.

“Restaurateur Mike Isabella gave Y&H the following statement via his publicist, who says he’s not available for an interview: ‘The Graffiato dinner on February 2 is a celebration of hip hop from two of the greatest artists of the 90s. The menu is still a work in progress, and dishes will be inspired by songs, lyrics and classic east and west coast dishes’,” reports Washington City Paper.
