Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt, Visits Red Rooster Harlem

By admin | September 21, 2011

Last night, Red Rooster Harlem once again had the pleasure of hosting another Head of Government for dinner, this time it was Prime Minister of Sweden, Fredrik Reinfeldt.

Prime Minister Reinfeldt arrived yesterday for a week-long visit to New York for the United Nations General Assembly Week. UNGA week brings together political leaders from all over the world as they gather for their various committee meetings at the United Nations Headquarters. One of the Prime Minister’s first stop in NYC was for dinner at Red Rooster where we also invited some of the most talented Swedish-born entrepreneurs as a warm welcome for Prime Minister Reinfeldt. Some of the honored guests included legendary Goaltender for the New York Rangers, Henrik Lundqvist; “The Medici Effect” author, Frans Johansson; Swedish photographers Paul Brissman and Camilia Slertman; and the esteemed President of the SACC New York Renee Lundholm.

We were able to host the Prime Minister in our newly-renovated room of the Rooster’s downstairs. Our staff prepared a beautiful room and a Harlem-inspired menu to match it. Among the selected fare, we served our famous Fried Yardbird, Mac and Greens, Shrimp and Dirty Rice, Cornbread, and Sweet Potato Donuts. Our in-house jazz singer and accompaniment entertained guests as they dined, to much of their enjoyment.

Overall, it was a beautiful night and we were much honored for Prime Minister Reinfeldt to visit us at Red Rooster. Throughout the week, the Prime Minister will be attending various UN meetings and also meet President Bill Clinton to take part in a panel discussion on Empowering Girls and Women’, organized by the Clinton Global Initiative. We wish you much luck today at the United Nations and for your entire stay here in New York!
