President Bill Clinton kicks-off #HarlemEatUP festival, which is now well in progress, with a great opening speech.
A little bit of rain came through but it has passed and we are ready to eat some good food and try some great wine in this packed crowd!
Good to see Bill Clinton back in Harlem where he use to have an office on 125th street for many years.
Enjoy the festival!

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.
Barawine Harlem is located on 200 Lenox Avenue, at the corner of 120th Street.

Saturday and Sunday Brunch in Harlem is serious business – an event that is not to be missed.
It’s all about legendary, newly established and up and coming restaurants, often at full capacity, serving a wide variety of great food, to well-dressed locals and visitors from the world over, in one of The City’s hottest neighborhoods.
Stay tuned as we identify several of our favorite places below, which include the Five and Diamond, Red Rooster, Melbas, Harlem Food Bar, The Cecil, Chocolat, Sylvia’s, Lido, Maison, Kitchenette and Vinateria – to name just a few.
A word to the wise. Harlem’s Restaurant Rows are easy to stroll. However be warned: Be hungry. Have a place in mind. Pick a backup. Get there early. Don’t always expect to be seated right away it may take a few minutes. Don’t rule out making a reservation which you can do via Opentable, etc. Basically, apply the same rules you would apply elsewhere in NYC. But whatever you do, do check out Brunch in Harlem!

“I travel all over the world for work and I am constantly asked to define Harlem. What’s it like, people ask. Is it cool? Is it safe? When I go to places like the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, to speak among celebrated thinkers and leaders, I’m often asked: Is Harlem good now? I always have to pause before answering. Good compared with what? To when? These questions all miss the mark. Is Harlem good now? That is a question loaded with long-held ideas about race and class, one that dismisses the complex, vital history of this neighborhood and its people, their contributions to civil rights and art, under one word: “bad.”
