There is one place you will generally find us every other weekend and that’s at
Yatenga French Bistro and Bar, located at 2269 Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Blvd (between West 133rd and 134th). Why? Because the French food is so darn good and reasonably priced. They have happy hour seven days a week up until 8 p.m. It’s right next to ShrineNYC, which offers live music seven days a week. And the couple who own Yatenga and Shrine are super cool, live in Harlem and have a beautiful family. We met them at the Ambassades Cafe launch recently and not too long ago bumped into them on streets of Harlem.
The last bump in with Yatenga owners, they told us they have a new
summer menu! We said send it our way! And so they did! Some of the new items on the Yatenga summer menu include zaatar shrimps (grilled shrimps brochettes and cabbage salad), beet salad with arugula, orange and parmesan cheese, goat cheese terrine wrapped with zucchini and roasted peppers, French pate’ and tartine. These are all small plates. As for large plates, Yatenga in Harlem has added skate, this dish use to be a special and its the one
I order all the time (love it), seafood pasta, and chicken milanaise. New sides include, sautéed asparagus and sautéed cauliflower and raisins. And for dessert, you can now order watermelon, parfait of the day, and crepe suzette
When we dine there, we always order the mussels and tuna tartare. The mussels have that perfect dipping sauce with bread and the mussel itself is actually always meaty. We like anything with avocado on it. At Yatenga, the tuna tartare is garnished with guacamole. It’s delicious and a different twist on tartare! For the main course, we always get skate, salmon en croute or steak. It’s a trade-off every other weekend on the large dishes. And sharing between us is a must.
We cannot stress enough how much we enjoy dining at Yatenga French Bistro. It’s a family run business. We think of and experience good French/Canadian food when we go there . And for us, it is our miniature escape to Montreal, but right here in Harlem!

Not too long ago, Harlem was profiled in The Financial Times, the UK-based publication. Now The Boston Globe takes its turn and profiles our community in its travel section this past weekend (June 5). Jessica Allen, the reporter, spends two days in Harlem along with her husband and discovers “Harlem makes a visitor feel and taste its forward movement.”
The article highlights various experiences from listening to jazz, to eating at Amy Ruth’s and to drinking at some of our unique establishments, such as 67 Orange and bier international. However, the most notable items in this article are not necessarily about places, but crafted words about Harlem. Allen states “perhaps no other area in New York so eagerly honors its history as Harlem.” She points to our famously named streets, such as Malcolm X and Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Furthermore, Allen goes on to say “despite the interest in what came before, these days Harlem seems utterly future-oriented.”
We couldn’t agree more with The Boston Globe! And to Jessica Allen and her husband, come back and see us (Harlem) again now!
