My wife and I came into NYC (from Orlando) for a weekend visit to see our son and not finding him home yet from work we asked his Harlem apartment roomy where we could grab a good meal on a Friday night in walking distance. He mentioned a few places then got excited when he recalled a good experience he had at the Harlem Grill -- so that's where we went. As one might expect at 9pm on a January Friday night, the place was full however we didn't wait but a minute until we were seated. We were warmly greated by the gal who seated us and the server was at our table asking for drink orders within 15 seconds. My wife was quite hungry and ordered a full rack of baby back ribs. I ordered shrimp tacos. Our meals came within 10 minutes and both were fantastic in taste and presentation. My wife made me chuckle about this particular experience because ethnically I was defineately in the minority here. However I was part of the 100% majority who found this bbq place a gem. Even the manager/owner made a point of asking me when I left did we enjoy ourselves and we replied enthusiastically - YES!

During the weekend of June 3-5 I had the pleasure of traveling to NY for a friends birthday, and had the wonderful opportunity to travel not only to Manhattan, but to Harlem as well. I was pleasantly surprised to the wonderful hospitality not only from the excellent shopping found in Harlem but the entertainment establishments were exceptional as well. The icing on the cake was a wonderful Grill that we happened upon late Saturday evening. After of full day of birthday celebration, and a unique experience at a restaurant in Manhattan that I will live to dine in only once since it was more than my unique personality could handle, the Harlem Grill was a great change of pace, and much more intimate of a setting for Birthday celebration. The music was wonderful, the drinks were fabulous, and the birthday serenade that my friend received was the special touch. High five... to the entire staff and the owner. In a city where everyone runs on hyper speed, the Harlem Grill is truely a diamond in the making.
