Harlem Shake Opens Thursday on Lenox Ave

By Mac Malikowski | May 13, 2013

Harlem Shake, Lenox Avenue’s highly anticipated burger and milkshake joint opens to the public THIS Thursday, May 16th. Although partially expecting to benefit from this year’s viral sensation of the same name, Harlem Shake was planned and designed long before the dance craze mutated and surfaced.

Here is a little blurb from culturalists over at the stylish and comprehensive neighborhood blog Harlem-Bespoke:

“This yet to open eatery is right at the north edge of the Mount Morris Park Historic District so the vintage decor should fit right in and become a hit with the locals alongside the many tourist who have arrived in the neighborhood for the warmer season. Harlem Shake should be a game changer for lower Lenox Avenue and pair nicely with the Red Rooster which is just a couple of blocks north.”

We’re excited for the addition and welcome to the neighborhood!
