“Headlined by celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson, Red Rooster celebrates the roots of American cuisine and the diversity of the neighborhood with its soul food menu. The restaurant, which opened in 2010, is named after the now-shuttered legendary Harlem speakeasy. Red Rooster has its own speakeasy (Ginny’s Supper Club), tucked in the basement, where visitors can enjoy dishes such as cornbread slick with apple butter and waffles crowned with fried chicken, all while listening to local musicians.”

American Restaurant
“Corner Social is extremely dynamic. On the weekends in the late morning and early afternoon, they host a delicious brunch with exceptional Bloody Marys and mimosas. I personally love their steak and eggs! And in the late evening, it becomes a divey hangout with a DJ and full bar. Try to get in early to avoid paying the cover charge (ladies free)!”
