Tradition and culture can be found in some  of the most unexpected places, this standing true for lox and other cured fish. What is seen as a traditional brunch menu item to some actually dates back to several different cultures and eras, yet it still gives us a delicious mash up of flavors and textures. When brunch comes around, a bagel and lox seems like the go to, but lox and other smoked fish can actually be used at dinner time as well, just ask Marcus who grew up eating smoked and cured fish in Sweden. As NPR: The Salt and The NY Times puts the spotlight on bagels and lox, transforming these items into a everyday meal, you can turn your next weekend gathering with a new delicious menu. Smoked fish like sable and trout, and accompaniments like capers, thinly sliced red onions, farmers market tomatoes, and other fresh produce are a great meal any time of the day. Read More

The countdown has began for the last few days of summer. While we dread the cold weather that awaits us, there are still a few warm days ahead and a few meals thats we can savor in the mean time. One of my favorite ways to wish summer a fair well and have a great Labor Day weekend, is with a seafood boil. A large pot heavily seasoned, full of the best that summer has to offer, including seafood, is a great way to close out the season. A seafood boil is also a great way to roll up your sleeves and have a good time with friends and family over a perfect meal. The Harlem Chowder for 2 at Red Rooster Harlem is a great way to also enjoy a end of summer seafood boil, without cooking. But how do you create a successful seafood boil? Here are a few tips for the perfect end of summer feast!  Read More

I always find that when I venture through the farmers market, I always seem to buy fruits and vegetables I wouldn’t ordinarily buy. The strawberries, the blueberries, and every piece of fruit in between always looks so amazingly fresh at the farmers market that I get home and have an abundance, and of course you never want this beautiful fruit to spoil. Spoiling is wishful thinking, and you need to think fast on how to savor this seasons farmers market harvest. This is where quick jam fits in perfectly. Making a quick jam solves so many wonderful problems and also uses up all of the fruit you so anxiously bought. Whether it be spooned on top of hot waffles or the tomato jam served with the corn bread at Red Rooster Harlem, jam can add a nice touch to a variety of things. Here are a few quick and easy tips for making quick jam at home.  Read More

Red Rooster, lunch, NYC, Restaurant Week,

Other than the holidays, the time of year I enjoy just as much is Restaurant Week. It gives everyone a chance to explore a large portion of the fabulous restaurants here in NYC for a fraction of the cost of dining out. There are no less than 250+ restaurants serving NYC diners 3 courses at amazing prices, $25 for lunch and $38 for dinner. And once again NYC Restaurant Week has made its way uptown to Harlem, and our very own Red Rooster is participating. During Restaurant Week, which starts July 22nd and ends August 16, head uptown and choose between the Chilled Carrot Ginger Soup or Market Salad and our Fried Chicken or Salmon dishes. Dessert will be a sweet surprise at the end.

It’s around this time that new items and daily specials are popping up around town and diners couldn’t be more excited.
