Two Chinese-born New Yorkers, one with a degree in Philosophy, the other in Medicine, had a dream of two cultures merged in one. The result is CARMA: Eastern cuisine with a Western flair.
Newly opened in the West Village, CARMA serves a distinctive Taiwan-based cuisine with strong American and European influences. With a signature menu created by the Executive Chef of Taiwan's renowned Din Tai Fung in collaboration with TAO, the cuisine of CARMA features artfully balanced and locally sourced ingredients.
For this Harvardwood evening, CARMA is putting together a special 8 course tasting menu with a glass of white wine and a glass of red--you'll find the full menu below (subject to change).
Introducing and commenting on the menu will be Jennifer 8 Lee '99, an authority on Chinese food and the ways Chinese food has been transformed in America, and the author of the New York Times best-seller The Fortune Cookie Chronicles. A former New York Times reporter, she is also a producer of the acclaimed documentary The Search for General Tso, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2014. At Harvard, Jennifer was Vice President of the Harvard Crimson. She is the Founder and CEO of Plympton, a literary studio that innovates in digital publishing.
