On Friday, February 6, New York City Jamaican restaurant Miss Lily’s will celebrate what would have been Bob Marley’s 70th birthday with Marley’s iconic music from two guest DJs and a special Rastafarian menu addition.
Just for the occasion, Miss Lily’s will serve Ital stew with callaloo, pumpkin, okra, and plantains in a decadent coconut milk sauce for $16.
Ital, derived from the word “vital,” refers to food of the Rastafarian diet that is believed to enhance one’s vitality. The concept has few set rules, though foods considered Ital do not contain chemical modifiers or additives, which for some includes salt.
Music will begin at 9 p.m. and will be paired with chef Adam Schop's island cuisine. Bob Marley’s 70th birthday celebration will be held at both locations of Miss Lily’s in New York City, in Soho and the East Village.
