Harlem has become a popular dining destination in New York City thanks to a great selection of restaurants opening in several new hot spot areas. The legendary Sylvia’s Soul Food restaurant led the way with success through the ups and downs of Harlem’s economic times, and has now been joined by a host of restauranteurs offering diverse culinary menus in several distinct “Restaurant Row” areas in Harlem.
Take a walk uptown from the statue of Frederick Douglass on 110th street and 8th avenue, and you’ll run into a new and happening Harlem Restaurant Row on Frederick Douglass Boulevard that is jumping with restaurants on either side of the street. Head over to Lenox Avenue and 125th street and you’ll find another Harlem Restaurant Row that has developed around Sylvia’s, most notably The Red Rooster, Chef Marcus Samuelsonn’s lively establishement which has added a spark to the area. So make Harlem your dining destination and check out the wide variety of restaurants uptown!
