Go to Red Rooster—for the bar

29 Jul

Sorry, but I thought the food was meh. The Red Rooster bar scene, though, is full of energy: bright, bustling and beautiful (the people, too). The bar itself is huge; there are plenty of seats should you want a bite with your cocktail (mine had vodka, agave and muddled grapes). No need for a big meal here, but if you must snack, stick with the cornbread (comes with interesting tomato jam) and crab cakes. Mac and cheese just OK but will get the job done. Overall, though, I’m happy this place came to Harlem—it’s a great addition to the neighborhood.

Go for the drinks, stay for the music and soak up the vibe (but not during a heat wave because a/c is weak).
