in Harlem & Upper Manhattan

This classy Michelin-recommended neighborhood restaurant shows a new side to Harlem, taking inspiration from Italy and Spain with flavor-packed dishes such as spicy veal meatballs bedded in parmigiano polenta and grilled octopus with roasted poblano peppers and fennel pollen. Pasta is made in-house, and the black seafood spaghetti is a signature dish.

Happy hour (5pm to 7pm Monday to Friday, 3pm to 6pm Saturday and Sunday) is an absolute steal for both food and wine, and includes $1 oysters.
