I had heard about this place for years and accidentally happened upon it one day. What a great day that was. The food was perfect, the waitstaff nice and the displayed history of the place gave it a unique flavor of it's own.

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

As Justin said before, contact the restaurant directly, but the fries are made of sweet potatoes, which naturally contains no gluten, and shakes are dairy based, which usually has no gluten either.
