Harlem villagers no longer have to turn to downtown to dine at a farm-to-table restaurant. Harlem dining patrons can now experience farm-to-table at Clay, located on the corner of 123rd Street and Manhattan Avenue.
What does farm-to-table mean? According to Clay Restaurant, it means “they source all of their produce, meats and fish from small, local suppliers. Nothing is mass-produced or served out of season. Wines and spirits also come from small producers, both seasoned veterans and ground-breaking upstarts alike, who care about their terrain and couple minimal intervention with maximum innovation.”
The New American restaurant opened up on the Harlem corner six weeks ago and is ready to serve locals (or anyone that walks in) with dinner and brunch on the weekends.
And if you’re curious as to where exactly Clay is sourcing, the list is posted on their website.

There is a long line at 126th Street and Frederick Douglass Blvd in Harlem-and it’s not for concert tickets to a show at The Apollo. Harlemites started lining up last night to be one of the first customers to dine at Joe’s Crab Shack in Harlem, which opens at 11 am today, July 30.
The long line at Joe’s Crab Shack started last night. Why? The first 100 fans that dine at Joe’s on opening day will win free crab for a year. In addition to prizes for the first 100, all guests who dine at the restaurant on opening day can enter to win additional prizes.
I stopped by the new Joe’s last night for their VIP party in Harlem. The place is very nice and huge! It’s a 10,000-square-foot restaurant on the second level at 2349 Frederick Douglass Blvd. The new Joe’s Crab Shack can accommodate 380 guests and will employ more than 200 team members from the Harlem area, according to Councilwoman Inez Dickens, who gave the figures at last night’s party.
I also learned an interesting tidbit about Joe’s Crab Shack. I had asked about their presence and experience in urban areas. After all, Harlem is their first location in New York City. I was pointed to a recent study conducted by New Media Metrics, which recently surveyed 3,400 African-Americans ages 13 to 64 about brand-related attachment. Joe’s Crab Shack was one of the brands in the restaurant category that made “the biggest gains in terms of positive awareness among black consumers.” Here’s an article about that study.
As for the food, unfortunately I cannot comment on the food at Joe’s Crab Shack. I arrived to the VIP party late and missed the goodies. However, I did have the opportunity to meet the executive chef and he stressed “the Harlem location will offer new summer menu promotion items, including the Corona Beach Bake and Coastal Wave Steampot featuring a wide range of lobster and crab options finished with a Corona chile-lime bath.”
I do plan to check out Joe’s Crab Shack in Harlem soon, but not today because I have this gut feeling they are going to get hit with customers like a tidal wave. Hope they came with enough crab!
