Anyone dined at these restaurants in Harlem? Are they any good?

La Bodega 47
Madiba
LoLo's Seafood Shack
Ricardo's
Silvano
5 and Diamond
The Cecil
Minton's

Marcus Samuelsson's new restaurant, Streetbird Rotisserie, is coming.

any good "new" trendy restaurants in your city worth checking out?

Patio to people watch in the summer
Been there three times and everything on their menu was tasty.

It gets too Love and Hip Hop in there. The Cecil is very good, service is iffy tho. It's gotten so popular that getting a table or your food in a timely manner is rough.

I still love Billy Blacks. I heard Chef Roble's restaurant was nice.

22 bucks for that chicken? NOPE

and he oddly was trying to infuse 'global' in but very randomly and not consistently

he put pikliz, a haitian condiment on the menu to accompany something, which i forget

i just wanted to see/try it and it was good

tasted phenomenal on the chicken but yet it only came with that other entree and they were acting like it was a major deal to give it to me. it's not a side it's a condiment. so strange. i even offered to pay even though i thought it was absurd but they did it

otherwise that chicken was not very tasty. ive had equally untasty chicken but for half the price.

(which I LOVE btw)

They moved to around 134th street but every time I pass there, it's not open. There's an awning up but I don't think an open date is in place yet. Which makes me sad.

That sells things here in Chicago, lol, put me on and I walked my Chicago ass through Harlem at night looking for that spot some years ago.

Loved it.

Always said when I go back I'll hit them up.

in addition to the others already mentioned, I also like Maison Harlem for lunch.. when it's slow

anything more than 5 occupied tables in the dining room and the entire staff goes down in flames
