For many years, even as Harlem gained new residential developments, its restaurant scene—with the exception of a few reknowned soul-food places—had lagged. That’s no longer the case, as Frederick Douglass Boulevard has become a veritable restaurant row and celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson’s Red Rooster has become one of the hottest places in the city, from a location just north of 125th Street.

Notable newcomers include Cédric, a French bistro; 5 & Diamond, a nouveau American spot; Bier International, a popular beer garden; Lido, an Italian restaurant; Harlem Tavern, which transformed a former auto body shop into a massive outdoor dining area; wine bar Nectar; and cocktail lounge 67 Orange Street.
