Harlem is Hot

Hi foodies,

I tried Harlem at 67 Richmond Street East (just east of Church) last weekend. It was really awesome...the produce is so fresh and I loved the Caribbean contemporary twist. My friends and I totally enjoyed the vegetarian sushi appetizer, crisps with a spicy dip, pasta with pine nuts and sundried tomatoes in coconut pesto, pork tenderloin with potato patties, salmon with sweet potato mash and greens, and spiced tofu steak with seasonal vegetables. The wine list was decent, the price was reasonable and the ambience is casual, fun, and funky. Chef and staff are formerly of Bonjour Brioche, so they know what they're doing. The only problem? It was pretty quiet for a Friday night. It's only been open for a few months, so I'm sure it's just taking some time for the word to get out. But I'd hate for it to be one of those little culinary gems that the city learns about too late! I believe it's open just for lunch on weekdays and for dinner Friday and Saturday nights....Bon appetit!
