Review: Barawine Harlem – Great space and food

I finally had a chance to dine at Barawine in Harlem one chilly quiet weekday evening.  I had an incredible experience.

Barawine is located in the space formerly occupied by Harlem’s first and short-lived caviar bar.   The venue is beautifully laid out and visually stunning.  I loved what felt like three different spaces each with unique feel and charm.  The display of wine bottles is particularly beautiful.  We were greeted by friendly attentive staff, all of whom spoke French.  The owner greeted us warmly and identified recommended dishes all of which I tried.  My dishes pictured below were warm and savory, the portions filling, and the prices right.

The wine selected by the owner was terrific.  The Spicy Corn and Poblano Cheese Soup was silky smooth and just spicy enough.  Every bite of the The Branzino Provencal was as flavorful and as unique as the last – truly delicious.

What I particularly like about this corner of Harlem, this particular Harlem restaurant row as it were, is that there is a decidedly french feel to it with newcomer Cheri up the block and across the street (stay tuned for our review of Cheri) and Chez Lucienne adjacent to Red Rooster up the block on the same side of the Street where Barawine is located.  I love the French influence in Harlem, being of French-Canadian and Haitian descent.
