We had black bean soup, chicken special and guacamole and chips. The food was fantastic. If you use a delivery app that you are directed to, know the address of your hotel. DO NOT use the suggested current location. Our poor delivery guy and I...More

As first timers in New York we walked for hours through Central Park and the surronding streets. When it was time for a fuel-up we stopped by at this place and where not disappointed. Very good food and welcoming staff. Also fun for people watching.

Have been bypassing this place for some time until I needed a quick lunch and this was just about the only option available. Happy to say that my Grilled Chicken Wrap was very good and very reasonable. Comes with fries if you wish.

Stopped here for lunch and was positively surprised. The food was very well cooked and hearty, one of my best experiences on Manhattan.

I have a single complaint and wish I could give 4.5 stars. The food needed a bit more seasoning. Well, what can I say. I told the bartender to make me a drink, out comes out Flaming Mango Margarita. Delicious. And I don't think he...More

As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has
played a vital role in the history of New York City.
Today, the neighborhood is as vibrant as ever as new
businesses and developments go up next to local
institutions. The heart of the neighborhood is
bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and
historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with
big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and
