Top Chef Dining in Harlem!
Popular, stylish comfort food eateries with creative cooking from world renowned chefs!
Much lauded in the neighborhood and beyond, chef Marcus Samuelsson’s Red Rooster has become an attraction in and of itself to Harlem. The lively comfort food restaurant has been packing people in since 2005 for dishes such as shrimp and grits, a loaded seafood jambalaya, and fried chicken with red velvet waffles. After a 2011 visit by President Barack Obama, his meal is forever known as the menu as “Obama short ribs,” which come braised with lobster & biscuits, bok choy, and amolasses glaze. Head here for brunch and DO NOT forget to try Marcus' Cornbread! Yoly's veggie favorite is the "NY Cheddar & Kale Omelette" and Alex enjoys the "The Lenox Brunch Burger".

Just a short walk along Saint Nicholas Avenue by Central Park is the small restaurant that offers some soul food staples, sans meat. Chef Brenda Beener started the restaurant with her son to create purportedly healthier alternatives to the foods she grew up on, like a soy “chicken” parmesan sandwich topped with dairy-free mozzarella and marina sauce, barbecue “riblets” made of lotus root and soy, and even a vegan-friendly version of a Harlem chopped cheese burger.

Lolo’s brings the full experience of Caribbean seasonings: Choose a fish — snow crab, shrimp, crawfish — and flavorful sauce — garlic butter, Old Bay, coconut curry, etc. — to go on seafood boils and in steam pots. Eater critic Ryan Sutton especially recommends the snow crab legs in spicy sauce, best eaten in the backyard. Don’t miss the jerk chicken, either. EVERYTHING here is delicious!

Take the M1 bus on 5th Avenue down to 82nd Street The MET is the largest museum in the United States and it is indeed grandiose. You could spend DAYS in there, so make sure you choose your exhibits ahead of time. Ancient Greece is my favorite and don't miss the Van Gogh exhibit.
