President Bill Clinton kicks-off #HarlemEatUP festival, which is now well in progress, with a great opening speech.

A little bit of rain came through but it has passed and we are ready to eat some good food and try some great wine in this packed crowd!

Good to see Bill Clinton back in Harlem where he use to have an office on 125th street for many years.

Enjoy the festival!

Marcus Samuelson’s follow-up to Red Rooster called Streetbird opens on 116th and Frederick Douglass Boulevard to an enthusiastic crowd.  This latest addition to the area we first dubbed as Harlem Restaurant Row ups the ante to this incredible Harlem location.

Cheri Harlem

Cheri Harlem

We recently had a lovely evening in Harlem at Cheri, the latest in what feels like a steady parade of new French eateries staking a claim to Harlem.

Cheri has a wonderful feel, a cross between a cozy intimate restaurant, someone’s brownstone home and French bistro.

The staff is incredibly friendly, and you can often find Cheri’s owner Alain Eoche’s there, as he lives above the restaurant, which means customers have his undivided attention.

The space is beautiful and offers a variety of special experience as you walk in.  Artwork is everywhere, both interesting, visually appealing and intelligent.

The staff is very friendly, attentive, and speak both French and English.

The food is tasty, plentiful and well priced.

The location is second to none and will only get better over time.

We really loved our visit and look forward to our next visit.

What cuisines would you like to see in Harlem?

thai market

One of our favorite restaurants is Thai Market.  They are adjacent to Harlem and deliver into Harlem.  They are reliable, courteous, quick, well priced, and the food is always great, always consistent in taste, quality and quantity.   I realized just how much I like them (and just how bad the conditions are in Harlem tonight) when I called and they told me they could not deliver to my area (which includes Restaurant Row) because it is too slippery.  Which I totally understand.

If you have not tried this place, please do.  It’s great.
