Eating in Harlem: Barawine

The fiance and I were thrilled to go on a date last Friday night. We chose Barawine, a romantic and trendy restaurant tucked right on the corner of Lenox Avenue and 120th Street. The decor is marvelous, and I will go on a limb here and say: it’s the best lit restaurant in Harlem. Every […]


Partying in Harlem is more fun!

Ain’t no party like a Harlem party ‘cuz a Harlem party don’t stop! I kind of cringed writing this, but that’s how I felt that night. Amazing African music, beautiful and fun friends, alcohol (drink responsibly), and dancing all night! I love hanging out with Naila because she’s so free-spirited! She drops it low when […]


Harlem Food Truck Rally

I’ve gone to Smorgasburg and several other food truck events in NYC, where I’ve fantasized about having something similar in Harlem. My wish finally came true last Saturday! Thanks to Harlem Eats, some of the best food trucks in NYC parked right on Frederick Douglass Boulevard between 117th and 118th streets. I spotted a Luke’s […]


Finding Harlem Street Style: Kristia

It’s been spring for a week now, but it’s still winter. Seriously, the wind almost knocked me down the other day, and you could only imagine how I’m feeling. If the weather was a human being and cared about my emotions, I would give her the biggest side eye right now. Anyway, I met up […]

We started out in my apartment, then went around my ‘hood to some of my favorite spots within walking distance. I […]

Finding Harlem Street Style: Marcio

It’s the first official day of spring! Too bad, it’s still winter weather. Stylish Harlemites are not letting the weather bring them down though. This ladies’ man makes sure to dress the part even under his winter coat. I caught up with this dapper young African man right around 124th Street in Harlem. His leather […]


Finding Harlem Street Style: Naila

The weather is warming up, at least that’s what it wants us think, and beautiful Harlem ladies are coming out looking as pretty and colorful as ever. Bright sweaters and big hair are never a bad combination. This week’s feature on “Finding Harlem Street Style” is a personal friend of mine. She’s as bubbly and […]


Never ending brunch in Harlem

There’s something special about Sunday brunch. Sitting with a group of friends, laughing, talking passionately about world issues, eating and of course, drinking. We had a fantastic brunch yesterday at 5 And Diamond in Harlem. I ordered pancakes with fried chicken and it was divine. The chicken was perfectly crisp on the outside and moist […]


Finding Harlem Street Style: Arsene

Mother nature decided to curse us all with her long, icy fingers. I can almost picture her cackling loudly at our misery. I’m not sure what we did to deserve this, but she’s not remotely interested in our happiness right now. Temperatures for this past week have stayed in the teens and early twenties (Fahrenheit), […]
