Why go? Celebrity chef Marcus Samuelson delivers an eclectic menu famously inspired by his Ethiopian heritage, Swedish upbringing and desire to pay homage to the Harlem neighborhood’s soul food roots. The place is about more than just food though. There’s always live music, interesting art on the walls, plus spirited conversations between tables.
Pipsqueak tip The downstairs space, Ginny’s Supper Club, throws a lively Gospel brunch, featuring some very talented teenage singers, on Sundays. Reservations encouraged.
