Today is the relaunch of The Nook at Red Rooster.  Located in a pocket of the restaurant at its entry, The Nook sells specialty savory items and sweets created by Red Rooster Harlem’s pastry chef, Deborah Racicot, whose impressive resume includes Gramercy Tavern, Côte Basque, Aquavit, Picholine and, most recently, Gotham Bar and Grill, where she was pastry chef.

With The Nook, Deborah and Marcus want to offer locals quick, healthy and affordable bites to eat.  The Nook’s menu will be an extension of Red Rooster Harlem’s global comfort food, with both savory and sweet selections.

Sandwiches will include the Chickety Split, fried chicken thigh served on a biscuit with sweet chili mayo and Haitian pikliz ($6.95); Hoagie Svenska, a soft pretzel bun piled with Helga’s meatballs, quick pickles and lingonberry mayo ($6.95); and Atta Boy, a freshly baked roti wrap filled with fried plantain, yucca and curried lentils ($7.95).  The sweet offerings will include cakes, cookies and pastries such as Lingon Bullar, brioche dough rolled in cinnamon sugar and lingonberry jam ($1.95); Yamma Jamma Coffee Cake, sweet potato cake layered with mission fig jam, topped with cinnamon streusel (2.95); and “A” Train Special, a curry-spiced oatmeal blueberry cookie with a light cream cheese filling ($1.50).  A variety of drinks will also be available including hot and cold Ambessa tea, from the line of four teas Marcus recently launched with Harney & Sons.

The Nook will be open seven days a week, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday; and from 10:00 a.m. to 5: 30 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays; with breakfast service coming shortly.

The lovely and talented Halle Berry was in Harlem last night (June 14) according to a HCL follower on Twitter. Apparently, she was in town for a benefit dinner organized by Mayor Bloomberg. Of course, the fundraiser was at…where else, Red Rooster Harlem. President Obama has started a trend.

Halle Berry was joined by Law and Order actress Mariska Hargitay and the Mayor himself! We were also told that singer Estelle, who has performed at the Apollo with John Legend, was the entertainment at last nights benefit.

If you’re not on Flipboard, Taptu or Pulse on your Ipad, get there soon. I am finding a load of information about Harlem on these app tools, such as Gadling, which has a profile of Harlem up on their site. Gadling is an AOL travel blog.

In their profile on Harlem, they list different things to do than The Boston Globe or The Financial Times. They tell their readers to check out places in Harlem, such as the Jazz Museum, Hip Hop Culture Center, Patsy’s in Spanish Harlem, WYZ Bar at the Aloft Hotel and more. Check out the complete story yourself by clicking here!

Have you ever heard of the Lunch Quadrant by Gothamist? Harlem’s 125th Street is featured this week! For the Lunch Quadrant, they checked out the lunch options at Island Salad, Fishers of Men at 121 West 125th Street, Mobay at 17 West 125th Street, and Red Rooster. Apparently, they go out in the city and find four lunch options (two standing, two sitting) by a given subway stop every week! Pretty cool…huh?

I was flipping through newspapers from this week and came across a huge congratulatory advertisement in The New York Times regarding our very own Harlemite, Marcus Samuelsson. Apparently on May 12, Samuelsson was awarded the Frederick Douglass Award by The New York Urban League at their annual Spring dinner. “The Frederick Douglass Award acknowledges and honors leaders in the private and public sector whose contributions to society serve to eliminate racial barriers and promote opportunities for the disadvantage.”

One word comes to mind: Wow! We at HCL say double congrats and what an honor!

It’s Spring time! That means it’s time for magazines to feature the most beautiful people on the planet on the cover. Uptown Magazine falls in line and starts off April right by pleasing the eye. In their annual Gourmet Issue, one of Harlem’s A-List couples graces the April cover. It is Red Rooster Harlem owner and celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson and his drop dead gorgeous wife and model Gate Maya Haile.

For the Gourmet edition, the Samuelsson’s gave Uptown Mag incredible access. The Harlem couple allowed the magazine to photograph them all over Red Rooster. Take a look at the behind the scenes coverage. The pictures and video are incredible. If you can get past that part, feel free to click on over here to read what’s inside Uptown Magazine’s Gourmet Issue!
