Mark

Welcome to the second annual Harlem EatUp! Festival. This four-day festival invites you to see and taste all Harlem has to offer from the artists of the kitchen, the canvas, the stage and the streets. Come Dine In Harlem! for a one-night-only multi-room dinner party for the ages, hit The Stroll, where Harlem’s food, art and culture will converge or observe culinary masters at the EatUp! Main Stage.  With all of this and more, you need to be in here!
When friends and founders of the Harlem EatUp! Festival, executive chef, restaurateur and Harlemite Marcus Samuelsson and veteran event marketer, Herb Karlitz, put their heads together about celebrating Harlem they couldn’t be stopped. Three months later, together with the sage insight and support of Harlem business tastemakers and residents, they would announce Harlem EatUp! to the world!
As part of its mission and dedication to Harlem, the Festival will donate proceeds from ticket sales to Harlem Park to Park and Citymeals-on-Wheels. Respectively, both organizations continue to provide a positive and direct impact on the community through small business support and feeding Harlem’s home bound elderly.

Island Burgers

In celebration of its 20th anniversary, Island Burger & Shakes is excited to announce the official opening of its third, and largest restaurant location in Morningside Heights at 3147 Broadway, between La Salle and Tieman Place (123/124). Located just steps away from Columbia University, the restaurant will serve an extensive menu of flame-grilled burgers, chicken sandwiches, entrée salads, and shakes.

“We are excited to open our doors and bring our casual grill experience to our new neighbors in Morningside Heights,” states owner Mark Calvino. “It’s our hope that the restaurant becomes the neighborhood destination for a delicious and affordable dining experience for the entire family.”

The 62 seat, full-service restaurant and bar nearly triples the size of the other two locations. Co-designed by founder Mark Calvino and partner, Sam Wong, the new location truly showcases the evolution of the brand, fusing rustic and industrial décor with 90s-era design throwbacks, wood-flanked walls and red leather banquets. The statement piece of the restaurant is the upside-down milk shake glass chandelier that hangs in the front window. A welcoming, 9-seat bar serves a portfolio of fine wines as well as artisanal and local bottled beers and brews.

Island Burgers & Shakes takes the concept of burgers and chicken sandwiches to a whole new level with over 64 variations. Diners may opt for a classic, build-your-own hamburger (starting at $9.95) or choose a specialty creation such as the staff’s favorite Here’s Gianni burger with roasted red peppers, bacon, and homemade parmesan spread on ciabatta; the decadent Hippo burger with curried sour cream, bacon, cheddar, homemade guacamole, sautéed onions, and scallions served in a whole wheat pita; the super-hot Napalm burger that’s blackened and served with BBQ sauce, jalapenos, cheddar, and habanero, and more.

Island Burgers & Shakes takes pride in the restaurant’s 20 years of business success along with its consistent use of high-quality ingredients, attentive and friendly service, affordable pricing, and casual, laidback atmosphere. The restaurant proudly serves grass-fed, antibiotic-free, Pat LaFrieda meat blend, sources its bread from local bakeries like Sullivan Street Bakery and Eli Zabar Breads, and makes most sauces and spreads in house.

For diners looking for lighter menu options, Island Burgers & Shakes serves up fresh and innovative entrée salads that can be topped with a protein of choice: hamburger, turkey burger, or grilled chicken. Some of the locals’ favorites include the Quinoa Salad with black olives, tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, fresh lemon and mint dressing; Boo Zoo Salad with mixed greens, bacon, cheddar, tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, and jalapeno; or the classic Baby Kale Salad with pumpkin seeds, tomatoes, and pecorino vinaigrette dressing.

Island Burgers’ famous milk shakes complement the savory menu. Diners can choose milk or malted fountain shakes with vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, or black and white ice cream. Ice cream floats are also available.

Barawine photoshopped

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.

bara WINE photshop

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.

RICHARD PARSONS’ THE CECIL NAMED 2014 BEST RESTAURANT IN AMERICA BY ESQUIRE MAGAZINE

First Time a Harlem, NY Restaurant Awarded​ This Title

On Tuesday evening Esquire Magazine will unveil the winners of their first annual American Food & Drink Awards at The Cecil in Harlem, NY.

THE CECIL will be named the ​2014 ​Best New Restaurant in America.

THE CECIL, created by New York businessman Richard Parsons and noted restaurateur and chef Alexander Smalls, is New York City’s first Afro-Asian-American brasserie.

Inspired by the travels, exploration and study of the African Diaspora its goal is to connect communities through food, comfort and hospitality.  Afro / Asian / American cuisine is a fusion of the best of what each of those distinct food cultures has to offer.

It traces the global migration of African-descendant people through the influence of African spices, textures and cooking techniques on traditional American, Latin and Asian dishes.

Guided by this concept, Executive Chef Smalls and Chef de CuisineJoseph “JJ” Johnson have conspired to create unique plates that combine the familiar with the unexpected.

Location: 210 West 118th Street, NY, NY 10026
