Review: Barawine Harlem – Great space and food

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.

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.

Harlem Condo Life Review – Boulevard Bistro (BLVD)

blvd-11-md

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.
