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!

The longest day of light in the year “summer solstice” is Thursday, June 21, 2015. This is also Father’s Day. Plan ahead and make special plans to celebrate summer solstice outdoors for Father’s Day and enjoy an extra long day of sunlight.
Summer solstice: from Latin sol “sun” and stitium “standing still”, because seen from the earth it looks like the sun halts in its tracks going northward, and moves back south.
The June solstice dates vary. For example, it’s on June 21 in 2015, but on June 20 in 2016. A June 22 solstice will not occur until 2203. The last time there was a June 22 solstice was in 1971.
*Keep an eye out for a new Podcast “Summer Solstice Compilation Mix” coming soon from HarlemHCL. Embellish your day and celebrate with a custom soundtrack of chillout, soul, house and latin music.
‘Solstice’ (Latin: ‘solstitium’) means ‘sun-stopping’, because the point where the sun appears to rise and set, stops and reverses direction after this day (Ill: Not to scale)

I finally had a chance to dine at Barawine in Harlem one chilly quiet weekday evening. I had an incredible experience.
Barawine is located in the space formerly occupied by Harlem’s first and short-lived caviar bar. The venue is beautifully laid out and visually stunning. I loved what felt like three different spaces each with unique feel and charm. The display of wine bottles is particularly beautiful. We were greeted by friendly attentive staff, all of whom spoke French. The owner greeted us warmly and identified recommended dishes all of which I tried. My dishes pictured below were warm and savory, the portions filling, and the prices right.
The wine selected by the owner was terrific. The Spicy Corn and Poblano Cheese Soup was silky smooth and just spicy enough. Every bite of the The Branzino Provencal was as flavorful and as unique as the last – truly delicious.
What I particularly like about this corner of Harlem, this particular Harlem restaurant row as it were, is that there is a decidedly french feel to it with newcomer Cheri up the block and across the street (stay tuned for our review of Cheri) and Chez Lucienne adjacent to Red Rooster up the block on the same side of the Street where Barawine is located. I love the French influence in Harlem, being of French-Canadian and Haitian descent.
Barawine Harlem is located on 200 Lenox Avenue, at the corner of 120th Street.

We stopped by HFB on Thursday to try the fried chicken after hearing the buzz about it and we were so happy we did. Wow!.. and I’m not kidding.
The chicken was D-licious. Moist, tasty and crispy but not greasy. It was accompanied by creamy mashed potatoes and green beans that snap when you bite into them. Luckily, we managed to score one of the last servings. I had it with my favorite happy hour drink there, the Watermelon Martini which I like on the rocks.
All I could say during my meal to my husband was, ” I’m in heaven”. So see you there next Thursday as I can’t wait to go back for more! =)

My husband, daughter and I recently ate dinner at Boulevard Bistro and enjoyed it a lot. We had a booth table which was comfortable and the decor and service were great. There was a large party next to us who also had a baby and they were served rather quickly as we were too.
My husband had the organic fried chicken which is served with smoked turkey collards and southern potato salad. I had the turkey meatloaf topped with wild mushroom and visalia onion gravy, with parmesan mashed potatoes and vegetables. We topped off our meal with the German cake which was also delicious.
We plan on going back soon for their brunch which we are hearing good things about.
If you haven’t tried BLVD Bistro in Harlem yet, we recommend it. Four stars on Yelp and a cozy inviting interior easily help make BLVD a charming addition to Harlem. Stay tuned for our part-two review on Boulevard Bistro.
