The just recently opened Harlem Food Bar, owned by Scott Siler and Ernesto Gonzalez is already making a mark for itself on Frederick Douglass Boulevard’s “Restaurant Row” in Harlem.  Not surprising  after the two different experiences I have had there so far.

Harlem Food Bar’s welcoming atmosphere and fun, hip, unpretentious vibe is attracting a wide variety of Harlemites.  On a warm summer night it almost feels like a cool Miami or LA spot with the doors wide open expanding outside to the sidewalk seating.  The music is just the right level, not too loud but enough to hear it in the background while talking with friends.  The decor I think is perfect for this space.  A beautiful mural expands across the entire back wall.  Tastefully done but casual at the same time.  Both times I was there the crowd’s appearance felt similar dress code wise.  You feel comfortable here either wearing casual gear or dressed up for fun.

I was impressed by all of the staff who seemed genuinely interested in the opinion of those dinning and drinking there and asking if they liked the food and cocktails.  Very important for a new place here in Harlem or anywhere to get feedback so that they can improve or work out any of the kinks.

The outdoor seating really adds to the charm.  The day I took this photo it was 98 degrees in NYC so understandably not as crowded as an average temperature day.  It is nice to have another option on Frederick Douglass Boulevard with outdoor seating.  My only objection  is  that it feels as though it needs a few more plants or dividers to separate the seating area from the sidewalk.  That being said they just opened and could  still be in the finishing process.

The cocktails and shared plates get a big plus.  Shown here are the Pineapple Mojito and the Mangopolitan.  Very nice.  The combination of pineapple, rum, mint and lime are delicious and refreshing especially on a hot night.  A great selection here of house drinks with some creative titles such as the last drink on the menu “The Wicked Bitch.”

The shared plates are great for sitting around the bar if you are just there for the drinks and atmosphere.  The chicken wings were tasty with a homemade buffalo sauce.  The hummus is made fresh daily and comes with pita chips.  It was not my personal favorite but my friend loved the hummus.  The mac & cheese squares are a popular starter and quite a few people were ordering them.  Great coupled with a cocktail of choice.  The bartender Jeremy pictured above will help you decide on a cocktail or the shared plates and is a pleasant and friendly addition  to the place.

For dinner my friend had the steak and really enjoyed it.  It was perfectly seasoned and cooked to perfection.  I had the bacon and cheddar cheeseburger with fries.  It was pretty much perfect and I would order it again.  Actually I look forward to having it again soon.  I noticed as I looked around there were two different tables with solo diners, both were having the burger and fries.  A good sign for die-hard burger lovers.  I was also pleased to learn they use grass-fed beef, organic chicken and homemade sauces.

Melbas, Bier International, The 5 and Diamond, 67 Orange and now Harlem Food Bar all seem to share a similar recipe for success.  They all offer a great atmosphere and are smaller in scale.  Intimate yet inviting.

Welcome to the neighborhood Harlem Food Bar.  I look forward to coming back again soon.

First we told you about Harlem Tavern’s menu and drink list as part of our Inside Harlem Tavern series. We continue our series with a topic that some might find odd or unnecessary, but we think it is important strategic information to have. And hey…this topic everyone deals with. It is commonly know as mother nature and when mother nature calls-at least for me-the question I will immediately ask to anyone and everyone is “Where the h** are the bathrooms?”

When I visited Harlem Tavern recently I actually asked to see the lady’s room. I wanted to know where they are located. Well, I found out there is not exactly a lady’s room. There is not a men’s room either. Harlem Tavern went…UNISEX with their bathrooms. There are several stalls with closed doors lined up against the wall to the right when you walk indoors. It is all closed off. Don’t worry. Its only when you wash your hands that you may or may not know the person standing right next to you.

I was sort of surprised when I saw this. I thought with all that space inside why not send the men one way and the gals the other way? I guess the owners figured let’s save on space indoors and give patrons more outdoor space for eating and drinking. Oh well. See you in the Harlem Tavern bathrooms.

As promised through our Inside Harlem Tavern series, we have some additional information on their menu. We now turn to their cocktail list.

First up is the Banana Sidecar: Hennessy, 99 bananas, and fresh lemon juice. This drink will be shaken and served in a martini glass for $12.

While you’re sitting outside at the corner of Frederick Douglass Blvd and 116th Street, how about drinking a Harlem Sunset? This drink will include tequila, cherry liquor, and pineapple. Yummy. We like this drink already and plan on ordering it ASAP…cause it has Te-qui-la! And its $10.

Next, can you say these words really fast? Tavern Rum Runner. It is catchy…huh? This will be served on the rocks in a mason jar for $12.

And last but not least is the Scottish Mule, which will have gin, cucumber, and ginger beer all for $10.

All these cocktails sound de-li-cious! And if you don’t want a cocktail, no worries. Harlem Tavern plans on offering 20 beers on tap and 60 craft beers in the bottle; as well as a selection of frozen drinks!

So the area that was a gas station, will soon be an eating and drinking station for Harlem humanity! The transformation of this space and menu will be well received! We will all find out soon when we physically will be going Inside Harlem Tavern!
