As part of our series called Inside Harlem Tavern, we would like to give you a sneak peak at their menu. Take a look below.
In my view, the items on the menu are as diverse as the Harlem population it will soon cater to. If you want a pasta dish, it is on the menu or if you want steak, no problem they have that too. How about having fish while sitting outside on the corner of Frederick Douglass Blvd and 116th Street? Harlem Tavern will be offering that as well to its customers. What is even better than the food listed in their initial menu are the prices! All the items on Harlem Tavern’s menu are reasonably priced. There is nothing priced more than $21 dollars. I think they are playing it very smart by doing this. Harlem Tavern is clearly recognizing their demographic by starting off with this reasonable price point as opposed to other local establishment(s) that received unfavorable criticism for their menu being priced too high. Bad Horse Pizza went through this recently. They received some unfavorable comments online- at least on HCL- regarding their prices. Harlem Tavern is clearly sending a message to Harlemites with this menu: come on over, hang out inside or out and enjoy a good meal without braking the bank. If they stick to this price point, count on us hanging out there!
Have a look at the menu below and tell us what you think! And stay tuned for our next blog post called Inside Harlem Tavern.
