Harlem Community Day Evite

Summer’s here and we’re kicking things off the best way we know how – with a party!

To celebrate the launch of Yes, Chef, a memoir by Marcus Samuelsson, we’re inviting you to our Harlem Community Book Launch Event on June 25th, the day before the book hits the shelves. You have been so important to the success of Red Rooster Harlem and we want you all to be there to celebrate this momentous occasion with Chef Marcus. Expect an afternoon filled with food, fun, kid’s activities, cooking demos, music, dance, drink…the list goes on.

The event is FREE and we encourage you to stop by anytime between 3pm-7pm at the Richard Rodgers Amphitheater in Marcus Garvey Park (enter at 123rd Street and Mount Morris Park West). Come ready to have a great time!

Yes, Chef Book Cover

If you would had told me as a boy growing up in Sweden that I would one day have a restaurant in New York City’s most dynamic neighborhood, I would have given you the recipe to my Mormor’s roast chicken. My experiences are my story—every hardship and hiccup, every achievement and accomplishment I’ve encountered along the way has brought me to this point. Every plate I put out at Red Rooster Harlem and Ginny’s Supper Club reflect the cities, people, kitchens, and spices I’ve come across throughout my journey, and now I share that with you.

Red Rooster Harlem is hosting a dinner on June 28th at 7:30pm and we want you to be there. You’re invited to come enjoy a special menu inspired by Yes, Chef–there will be tastes from Sweden and Ethiopia, hints of sweet and sour, and plenty of appreciation and love.

The 3-course tasting menu is $95 ($125 with wine pairings) and the price includes tax, gratuity and a signed copy of Yes, Chef. Come join Chef Marcus for a culinary journey around the world as we celebrate Yes, Chef with live music and entertainment and a Q&A with our dear friend Thelma Golden, Director and Chief Curator of The Studio Museum in Harlem. We’re also giving away TWO tickets to the exclusive event–all you have to do is “Like” Marcus Samuelsson on Facebook and the winner will be chosen at random.
