Stephen Starr - who started his career as a music promoter - and Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson - the Philly-born drummer for The Roots - are going into the food business together in New York.

Expect a mid-May rollout of Hybird, a stand at Chelsea Market. Starr owns branches of Morimoto and Buddakan in the same building.

Only dribs and drabs of information have been released (the New York Times had more on the overall changes at the market), but the menu will include Quest's signature chicken drumsticks (which have been served here at the Roots Picnic and Feastival), dumplings crafted by Buddakan's chefs, cupcakes, as well as juices and slushies.
