DETAILS
Star chef-owner Marcus Samuelsson's Red Rooster has taken Harlem by storm with its contemporary Southern — and some from Sweden — comfort food such as fried chicken, catfish and grits, meatballs with lingonberries, and steak frites. Full bar. Serving lunch Mon-Fri, dinner nightly. Sat-Sun brunch 10 am-3 pm. From the restaurant's website:
"Red Rooster Harlem is thrilled to join Harlem's vibrant community alongside local legends like The Apollo Theater, Studio Museum, Sylvia's and The Schomburg Center. We named our restaurant after the legendary Harlem speakeasy that was located at 138th Street and 7th Avenue, where neighborhood folk, jazz greats, authors, politicians and some of the most noteworthy figures of the 20th century - such as Adam Clayton Powell Jr., Nat King Cole and James Baldwin - would converge to enjoy drinks and music in an inviting atmosphere."

"The racial and ethnic variety in the vast bar and loft-like dining room are virtually unrivaled. The restaurant may not be the best to open in New York City this year (though the food is good). But it will surely be counted as among the most important. It is that rarest of cultural enterprises, one that supports not just the idea or promise of diversity, but diversity itself."
- Sam Sifton, The New York Times, March 8, 2011

"The menu is filled with home-cooked favorites from Stockholm (gravlax, Swedish meatballs) and Harlem (mac and cheese, fried chicken, oxtail stew), and the elegantly appointed room has been designed with comfort in mind. "
