This is a sad day for many worshipers in Harlem. But it might also be a momentous one, full of opportunity. The extent to which this is true will reveal itself over time. There is one thing of which we can be sure. Harlem is resilient. It will make the most of the change. And the community will benefit.

My husband, daughter and I recently ate dinner at Boulevard Bistro and enjoyed it a lot. We had a booth table which was comfortable and the decor and service were great. There was a large party next to us who also had a baby and they were served rather quickly as we were too.
My husband had the organic fried chicken which is served with smoked turkey collards and southern potato salad. I had the turkey meatloaf topped with wild mushroom and visalia onion gravy, with parmesan mashed potatoes and vegetables. We topped off our meal with the German cake which was also delicious.
We plan on going back soon for their brunch which we are hearing good things about.
If you haven’t tried BLVD Bistro in Harlem yet, we recommend it. Four stars on Yelp and a cozy inviting interior easily help make BLVD a charming addition to Harlem. Stay tuned for our part-two review on Boulevard Bistro.

HarlemCondoLife has been a huge fan of Harlem Shake from day one. We were there when it was emerging from concept to reality. Through press-only pre-opening through grand opening. We’ve remained supporters directly or indirectly through our sister businesses as it has grown into an example of the success that can and is Harlem. We are also customers who love their food, their atmosphere, and their home delivery service via Seamless, which operates flawlessly even on the latest of nights.
Kudos Harlem Shake.
Congratulations and welcome Ijeoma!
