Contemporary American | Harlem, Manhattan

Tiny little restaurant with one community table and 12 seats. well designed......like eating at a chef's table. Outstanding food!!! mac and cheese spring rolls to die for! Black Bass on bed of fettuccine just wonderful. Service is great. Wine list is small, well curated, pretty broad and very affordable. Pricing (service is included) is very decent for NYC. A must go to! More

It is wonderful to see a historic neighborhood landmark renovated and alive with fantastic music, a cool receptive audience, and nicely done food and beverages. We had a great night here. The server was very attentive -- although also just a tad pushy when it came to meeting the minimum. We certainly planned on covering it (and we did!), but it still felt a bit aggressive. Music was top-notch. More

Traditional Mexican | Harlem, Manhattan

This place is one of the best kept secrets in Harlem right now. The brunch is excellent and very well done. Visited on a Sunday afternoon and it was practically empty compared to the many other after-church soul food restaurants in Harlem which are packed at this time. The view on a nice day - particularly on the balcony - is relaxing and the service is very attentive. I enjoy their chorizo and any of their egg dishes, and the cocktails are always top notch. Definitely recommend a visit. The only downside is many of the seats are stools without backs. This didn't work too well for a few of the folks in our group however the servers were very accommodating in getting them chairs with backs. More

We enjoyed our appetizers, dinner and dessert, but had no idea they charge a cover to get into the place, whether or not you have a dinner reservation. The cover charge was to experience the other events they have (after work dance and bar area) which I did not utilize. More

Harlem Wine Room

Wine Bar | Harlem, Manhattan

The lounge’s carefully curated wine list is designed to highlight diversity in taste. Harlem Wine Room has everything from Moscato d'Asti’s, to Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons. Our cellars have wines from Italy and Spain and even a cherry wine. This list was created with the understanding that the best wine is the wine you enjoy drinking, not the wine that some critic gave 90 points to in a magazine.

With wine, food is a necessity, and our specialty is carpaccio (Felix's favorite dish). We take a beef tenderloin, cut into 1 1/2 inch thick slices, and pound it until it's paper thin. We then combine it with Harlem Wine Room’s signature mix of herbs and spices to make one of, if not thee, best carpaccio in the city. In addition, Harlem Wine Room offers a selection of paninis and cheese plates that will give you a taste of the different regions our wines explore. More

Discover Harlem

Renowned for its vibrant culture across music and literature, Harlem’s burgeoning restaurant scene has made it one of the most exciting neighborhoods in the five boroughs. Soul food is always on the menu, but now it has a modern twist—part gourmet, part classic comfort. And it’s not all chicken and waffles uptown. Ramen shops beckon with their slurpy noodles, and down-home seafood shacks sling salt water treasures. To spice it up, you can also explore NYC’s only Somali restaurant for savory pastries and other adventurous eats. Amidst the brownstones and history of Harlem, new flavors await.
