Hip-hop and the world of fine dining meet at Saison restaurant in Virginia. They have a new item on the menu. In honor of their 1 year anniversary, foodies and hip-hop heads can come in and order a six-course hip-hop inspired meal.

According to co-owner Jay Bayer, the dinner is “one part rad paired six course dinner and one part whimsical hip hop puns … think Eminempanadas, Old Dirty Custard, Wu Tang Clams, Tupac Choy, RaKimchi, The Rootsabaga… You get the idea.”

Called the  “Big Pun Hip Hop Dinner,”  each course will be paired with a soundtrack.
