After Irene

Here at Red Rooster Harlem, we were very lucky to have not suffered the worst during Hurricane Irene this weekend. Irene being the first major hurricane to hit New York since Hurricane Gloria in 1985, we weren’t sure what to expect, but luckily the city took all necessary precautions. Once again we were lucky to survive the storm and things are slowly getting back to normal here in the city and at Red Rooster.

I want to personally thank all of my staff that worked very hard to prepare for this storm. Much of the Red Rooster staff, including Executive Chef Michael, worked all night to prep the kitchen and restaurant in case of an emergency. You all did a great job, and now that the storm has passed, it’s time for us to get back to work to serve our customers!

Hurricane Irene was no doubt a scary and unpredictable time for all of us in New York and at Red Rooster, but nevertheless it was a situation that we had to deal with and luckily it all went well. I hope you all stayed safe as well and I look  forward to seeing you all at Red Rooster in Harlem once again!
