As you may or may not know the Harlem EatUp! Festival was last weekend’s invitation to try one of the many Harlem restaurants.  Dinners were sponsored by many organizations and often in conjunction with guest chefs from around the country.  The event was organized by Marcus Samuelsson of Red Rooster fame and the first annual Harlem EatUp! Festival took place May 14-17.

As I’ve previously written, I’ll be writing more about the event and my reflections thereon in the following weeks.  However the first thing I need to mention is my Friday night experience at The Five and Diamond.

Now five years old, The 5 and Diamond serves New American food in Lower Harlem.   It is located at2072 Frederick Douglass Boulevard.  Some people call the area South Harlem (SOHA).  HarlemCondoLife.com coined the strip on which is is located HarlemRestaurantRow (there are now many distinct Restaurant Rows in Harlem).   The May 15 evening features Chef Joseph Hayes III and Guest Chef Marvin Woods.  6pm and 8:30pm seatings were available for $85.

I arrived for the second seating.  The place was packed and buzzing. I was greeted warmly by owners who were kind enough to seat me at their table.   I was immediately offered a glass of satisfying red wine and then the food started flowing.   The featured chefs Joseph Hayes III and Guest Chef Marvin Woods did an amazing job.  Sadly I missed out on the Citrus Salad but I really enjoyed the Duck Duck Dua, the Caribbean Seafood Sancocho, the Mahogany Lacquered Rack of Lamb, and the Fig & Tart Cherry Bread Pudding.  Each course was better than the last,.  And as I am a sucker for duck, lamb and bread pudding, all my favorites were covered, and covered well.

Entertainment was provided on an ongoing basis by Kersten Stevens and Gail Blanche-Gill.  Local musicians and their band who serenaded us with uplifting sounds throughout the eventing.

All in all it was a magical experience.

We have always been big fans of The Five and Diamond.  They are pioneers, survivors and innovators,  in so many senses of these words.

We wish them nothing but continued success and all the best.

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!

We really loved this piece on this intimate community oriented eatery in East 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.

What other cuisines would you like to see in Harlem?

No need to leave Harlem for NYE 2015,  celebrate at your favorite watering hole, restaurant or club in Harlem!  Last year almost every spot up and down Frederick Douglass Blvd (Harlem Restaurant Row), Lenox Ave and everything in-between held festive celebrations uptown.

Support your local businesses and neighborhood restaurants and bring in the new year with neighbors and friends.  Last year was very successful if it is any indication of how busy this year will be, so make sure to call and make a reservation ahead of time.  We have highlighted each venus website below for your convenience.  It is not too early to plan New Year’s Eve is right around the corner.
