harlem shake

On Easter Sunday, April 20th at 2:00pm, the “burger & milkshake joint” in the heart of Harlem will be partnering  with Susie Q, local celebrity fitness trainer and clothing designer, to offer guests an afternoon of line dancing, an Easter egg hunt, prizes and good food.

Harlem Shake has a full-day of celebrations planned: ·

2:30-3:30PM – Line dancing with Susie Q as the leader·

3:30-4:00PM – Easter egg hunt for children 12 and under with prizes!·

4:00PM – Best colored egg winner announcement.

Starting March 17th, each in-store purchase by a guest with a child will receive an egg coloring sheet. Children can color in their own creative design and drop it in a box to be entered into a contest for the best colored egg. One creative child will win a $50 gift card to Harlem Shake, and two runners up will win a $25 gift card. The restaurant will be serving two Easter themed milkshakes on Easter Sunday.

Try the Funny Bunny, a hazelnut chocolate shake with a chocolate Easter bunny hidden inside, or the Kool Peeps, a pistachio flavored shake topped with Peeps candy.

Signature items from the regular menu like specialty burgers, fries and shakes will also be available for purchase.

Harlem’s Restaurant Row Goes Mobile – Here come the Foodtrucks!

Harlem Restaurant Row Goes Mobile

HarlemCondoLife is happy to see that “Harlem Restaurant Row” (the phrase, the concept, the place) is  maintstream, as friend to our publication Michael Feeney reinforces in his latest piece in the Daily News.

After several delays earlier this year, food trucks arrived on Frederick Douglass Boulevard.  It was a huge success.  Which translates into more trucks coming soon – starting May 10th.

We love a good food truck.  Our one hope is that Harlem businesses will broaden their brand and their reach by setting up and/or bringing their own food trucks to the party.  See our previous post Harlem Food Truck Rally.

Welcome one.  Welcome all.  Welcome food trucks to Harlem Restaurant Row.      See the full NY Daily News article below.

Brunch In Harlem

Brunch'n'Harlem Brunch In Harlem HarlemCondoLife

Saturday and Sunday Brunch in Harlem is serious business – an event that is not to be missed.

It’s all about legendary, newly established and up and coming restaurants, often at full capacity, serving a wide variety of great food, to well-dressed locals and visitors from the world over, in one of The City’s hottest neighborhoods.

Stay tuned as we identify several of our favorite places below, which include the Five and Diamond, Red Rooster, Melbas, Harlem Food Bar, The Cecil, Chocolat, Sylvia’s, Lido, Maison, Kitchenette and Vinateria – to name just a few.

A word to the wise.  Harlem’s Restaurant Rows are easy to stroll.  However be warned:  Be hungry.  Have a place in mind.  Pick a backup. Get there early.  Don’t always expect to be seated right away it may take a few minutes.  Don’t rule out making a reservation  which you can do via Opentable, etc.   Basically, apply the same rules you would apply elsewhere in NYC.  But whatever you do, do check out Brunch in Harlem!
