Harlem, NY 10027
These new long awaited restaurants will take Harlem up several notches this fall. Cecil is opening in September and Minton’s Jazz Club will open in October. Minton’s as many may remember goes way way back to the 30’s in Harlem. It has been restored and updated and definitely will play a part in bringing Harlem back! We have been waiting for both of these for a long time and are very happy that they are just weeks away from opening. We will be there for both Grand openings and look forward to this addition to classic Harlem.
In the meantime you can follow both on facebook and twitter (see below). Stay tuned for upcoming dates and more information.
