Broiled Giant Spicy Prawns, Yam Flapjack, Piri Piri Sauce.

The highly anticipated Cecil opens today with a frenzy of social media flying in as fast as they possibly can just to experience what all the buzz is about.  We here at Harlem Condo Life are among the enthusiastic media, and look forward to our first time experience with Cecil.  We have high hopes  for this old meets  new establishment and newest addition to Harlem Restaurant Row.  They have our attention with small plates such as “Broiled Giant Spicy Prawns, Yam Flapjack, with Piri Piri Sauce” (above ) and “Spicy Crispy Ginger Squid with Okra and Sweet Chili Peanut Sauce.”  Or a shared bowl for two of Afro / Asian / American Gumbo (Smoked Turkey, Chinese Chicken Sausage, Gulf Shrimp, and Crabmeat)

Take a peek at Cecil’s menu (below) with a scrumptious assortment by – Chefs Alexander Smalls – Restauranteur, and Joseph “JJ” Johnson – Chef de Cuisine.

The Cecil MENU.  Here is a photo they sent us of their sticky buns.  I don’t know about dinner, but I am ready for these sticky buns right now!  They also were recently written up in the Huffington Post, The Hollywood Reporter and The Wall Street Journal.  Both The Cecil and Minton’s were mentioned in Huff Post BLACK VOICES and one dish in particular that stood out to us was the “Black Benne Seed Ahi Tuna.”  Looks delicious.

EXPRESSIONS, a mini-exhibit opens at Art In FLUX Harlem

Screen Shot 2013-01-17 at 6.43.36 PM

A new exhibit coming soon at ART IN FLUX.

EXPRESSIONS, a mini-exhibit opens at Art In FLUX Harlem on January 25, 6-9pm along with closing reception for three FLUX galleries


Expressions is an exhibition curated by and displaying the work of interns at Art in FLUX Harlem: Danniella Carter, Dykeisha Hill, Elina Stella, Erin Murphy, Jacqueline Jones, Kachine Moore, Kathy Veliz, Ken Weisensee, Marie Demple, Raven Willis, and Rebecca Alvarez.  Each artist contributes an image with the central focus of expression.  When joined together the images create an introduction to the vast ever-changing forms of human emotion.

Focusing on the portrait by way of painting and photography, the exhibit gives light to the variances of expression through the eye of different individuals.  The artists have based their work for this exhibition on the idea of capturing and embodying human emotion.  The show emphasizes the effect of expression and how it can influence someone’s initial perception of another individual.  Whether it is read from a smile, eyes, pose, or through a gut feeling, expression is an innate form of communication.  Through drawing, painting, collage and photography the interns collaborated to present their own lens to convey the emotional state of an individual.

“A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.” -Cezanne

Opening Reception: January 25th, 6pm to 9pm

Opening Reception Events: DJ Jeremiah aka Mr. Afrobeat, Meet the Artists, Songs by Elina
