Cool Design and Innovation from Red Rooster Harlem
Twin Cities fine diners will remember when Marcus Samulesson, the African-born, Swedish-raised chef, brought his innovative restaurant, Aquavit, to Minneapolis' IDS Center. The renowned chef has since written several cookbooks and opened other restaurants, but his Red Rooster Harlem in NYC is a love letter to both of his roots, although a little more heavy on the African side.
Menu items include Helga's meatballs with lingonberry jam, jerk catfish and deviled eggs with chicken skin mayo and crackling.
In addition to the restaurant and bar, there's Ginny's Supper Club, a classic Harlem speakeasy. There's also a gospel brunch.
There's also an app that can be downloaded free from Amazon.
But as much as the restaurant is a feast for the taste buds, it is for the eyes as well. Here are some pictures I took with my cell phone during a recent visit there.
