Jessie Ware is VH1’s You Oughta Know artist this month, and we were lucky enough to spend some quality time with her recently here in New York City. Anyone who follows Ware on Twitter (@jessieware) or Instagram knows that the British songstress is a connoisseur of fine food— she describes herself as “a total foodie”— so when she was here in town, we made sure to take her out for a really good meal.
A few hours before she played to a sold-out audience at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, we took her out to eat at Sons Of Essex in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Chefs Roberto & Spencer whipped up an amazing spread for Jessie, including their renowned lobster pot pie. Watch our video below to find out what Jessie thought of the meal, as well as what she considers her own signature dish to be.
