Harlem Tavern

This restaurant is a newcomer. It only opened this past July and people quickly made use of its outdoor space.

Come wintertime the outdoor space will be enclosed and heated, or you can opt to sit inside to enjoy Darren Pettigrew's food.

From a wedge salad with shrimp to kabobs are on the menu. There are burgers and sliders, flatbreads, muscles and wild salmon.

Harlem Tavern is located at 301 West 116th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard in Harlem.
