 September 29, 2012 – Harlem, NY – Whether you’re a foodie, a yoga enthusiast, aspiring dancer or family looking for fun activities to keep the little ones busy, you can find it at this year’s Harlem Harvest Festival. Harlem Park to Park, a community improvement association in Central Harlem, the hub for New York City’s premiere dining, shopping and nightlife destinations north of 110th street, will present its third annual Harlem Harvest Festival on Saturday, October 6, from 10am to 4pm.  The event will take place in A. Phillip Randolph Square at St. Nicholas Avenue, between 116th and 117th streets, as the kick off event for Harlem Park to Park’s annual Oktoberfest.

The Harlem Harvest Festival, which drew more than 2,700 attendees last year, has grown even more this year with vendor participation including businesses from Central and East Harlem, as well as upstate farms and wineries. Bread Alone, Horman’s Pickles, Brooklyn Cured Sausage, Breezy Hill Farm, Knoll Crest Farm, Cider Hill Farm, Glebocki Farm, Thousand Island Winery, Community Markets, Cabot Cheese will all participate, along with performances by the Dance Theater of Harlem, live music from a salsa band, and great activities for the kids. Also featured is the annual cook-off event, this year featuring the “Battle of the Avenues” pitting Lenox Avenue restaurants, Sylvia’s and Corner Social and for Frederick Douglas Blvd., 67 Orange and Harlem Tavern.  The restaurants will square off on omelets and entrées.

“The Festival has become a wonderful way to showcase the best of our amazing local businesses, not only to our neighbors, but also to the rest of the city as we invite everyone to travel uptown and experience first-hand one of New York City’s most exciting new shopping, dining, and nightlife destinations,” said Nikoa Evans-Hendricks, Executive Director of Harlem Park to Park.  The organization has played a crucial role in raising the level of visibility for the businesses in the community.

Through The Plan, you will learn that your weight is nothing more than data and from this data we learn how your body reacts to certain foods.

Jado Sushi Harlem – Menu (Update)

Jado Sushi Harlem

Since our first couple visits and reviews of Jado Sushi, we recently went back and were pleased to see that they now offer an impressive assortment of choices on their full menu.  Almost too many choices to decide between.  In addition to everything that was on the sampler pre-grand opening menu they now offer a large selection of classic dishes as well as many interesting new ones.

We spoke with the owner Nobu, and he said the middle of August had slowed down a little bit with business but they are now busy again and seem to be getting positive reviews.  We went on a Tuesday night and it was a good size crowd and the sushi bar in the back was full.  Jado is a great place for the “singles crowd” here in Harlem, who want to swing by for a solo dinner on their way home from work.  A friend to our blog says that he enjoys sitting at the Sushi bar after work located in the back once a week.  Quick, easy, satisfying, healthy and you might even meet someone!

Please see our review of Jado Sushi In Harlem.

Favorite selections from those of us here at HarlemCondoLife:  The glazed short ribs, fried oysters and the jado chicken Small Plate starters.  The sushi medley or the  jado sushi and sashimi ensemble, a great introduction to their sushi.  The miso marinated black cod, bok choi.  One of the best black cod dishes in the city.  Their Fiji green tea to cleanse the palate.  If you have any room left for desert the tempura ice cream.  A must try.
