Harlem attracts cool crowds of NYC downtown says Guest of a Guest

Guest of a Guest, the website co-founded by one of the Winklevoss twins whose been battling Mark Zuckerberg for what seems like ages now, has a feature on Harlem this week. It is quite complimentary, however, it doesn’t say anything new that we Harlemites know already. The article names a list of places to check out and most of them mentioned I agree are great places to visit. However, a true Harlem native writing about Harlem would have dug a bit deeper.

For example, Lido Italian Restaurant and Bar gives Red Rooster a run for its money, not only in food, but in ambiance as well. The same goes for Cedric French Bistro and Bar in Harlem! What about mentioning a place in East Harlem? Milk Burger has been endorsed by Anthony Bourdain and his lovely Mrs! Also, when you visit Shrine one can’t miss Yatenga, which is a fun place to hang.

Again, as most of us Harlemites know, there are a ton of cool places to hang in Harlem. Guest of a Guest apparently is just coming around (a bit late) and finding out, but hey, let’s welcome it!

  1. Let’s hope the trendies don’t try to turn our home into a MeatPacking District full of see & be seens. Home is where the heart is.

  2. I am in complete agreement with you.
    The GofG article is nice publicity for us Harlemites but, as you mentioned, they are little late to the party… and the article is a bit…dated.

  3. Like HarlemGal said, “Next time dig deeper” in regards to our neighborhood. Then you’ll find that what is sorely lacking in those time sensitive trendy spots we hold in aces: heart & soul.

  4. do you own lido? jish! you are constantly pushing that place. run for your money to red rooster?!?! lol! i don’t think so. generic italian food at “meat packing” prices are not what i’m looking for. thanks, but no thanks.
