Harlem Park To Park Presents Harlem Restaurant and Retail Week! Starting Thursday, August 15th, Today! Look for Prix Fixe 3 course Menu Lunch $20,13 and dinner $30,13 from many of your favorite Harlem Hot Spots. Also Retailers will have on sale select items from $10,13 to $30,13. The discount menu and select retail items will continue all the way until August 31st.
Much of Central Harlem‘s new restaurant excitement spotlights Frederick Douglass Boulevard, but beautiful and historic Lenox Avenue has also become quite a culinary epicenter. And this Tuesday night, eight restaurants on Harlem’s Lenox Avenue will prove that as they serve up local cuisine as part of the “Summer Sizzles On Lenox,” a block party-style event .
“We’ve got some of the widest sidewalks in the city, we’ve got gorgeous architecture, we have a thriving commercial corridor now. It really has become a place to see and be seen,” said Nikoa Evans-Hendricks, an organizer from the group Harlem Park To Park.
Come out and sample the food, drinks, music and hospitality of the other restaurant row. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Sylvia and Herbert Woods Scholarship Endowment Foundation, which is named after the founder of Sylvia’s and her husband.
The event kicks off at 6 p.m. Tuesday. To pre-order tickets, visit summersizzles.eventbrite.com, or buy them the night of the event for $10 at Federal Carver Bank at 75 West 125th Street or Native Restaurant at 161 Lenox Avenue. Bon appetite!
Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting Harlem Park to Park’s Executive Director Nikoa Evans-Hendricks following her interview by CBS News at Land Yoga promoting the 4th annual Harlem Restaurant and Retail Week.

Several Harlemites have $20.11 posted on their Facebook or WeHarlem pages and it’s not a reminder of the current year. It’s locals reminding us through social networks that it is restaurant and retail month right here in Harlem. From April 15 to May 15, select local businesses are offering special deals. If you’re wondering who is participating, see the complete list below.
Last year, I went to Chez Lucienne and enjoyed the meal and deal very much. I wonder where I should dine this year for this occasion?
And a big thanks to Harlem Park to Park, who is once again leading this effort to promote all the wonderful retail businesses we have right here in Harlem.
