After a few days off for the holidays, I am still catching up on my reading about Harlem. Today, I stumbled across this article about low-budget restaurants that stood out in 2010. Out of 15 restaurants listed by The New York Times, Kuti’s, located in Harlem at 355 West 116th Street, was named one of “the best of casual restaurants reviewed in 2010 proved that delicious doesn’t have to mean expensive.”
Kuti’s opened up in the first business quarter of 2010 (March) and is owned by Abdhul Traore, who also happens to be the chef!
Congrats to Kuti’s in Harlem and Mr. Traore on the accolade. May there by many more!

There are two wonderful events taking place this evening for you to consider for your Thursday Harlem holiday schedule.
First, we want to tell you about the Winter Celebration and Tree Lighting in Morningside Park, organized by the Friends of Morningside Park. Festivities will begin at 4:00 PM inside the St. Recreation Center at 123rd Street and Morningside Avenue. The holiday celebration will then move outside at 4:30PM. The holiday tree will be lit at 5:00 PM.
And second, we want to tell you about Harlem Flo’s Holiday Trunk Show, which will include items to purchase from local artists and designers. This event will take place at their second location, which is 2276 Frederick Douglass Boulevard, and starts at 6 PM.
So if you’re looking to attend a tree lighting and get some holiday shopping done, tonight is the night in Harlem.
Happy Holidays everyone!
