THE RED ROOSTER Crows in Harlem

The RED ROOSTER is still one of my favorite places for lunch.

210 Malcolm X Blvd.  Right down the street from Bill Clinton’s office.

The decor is comfortable, casual…….no need to dress up.

Samuel works the room…………making sure his diners are satisfied.

You can start with delectable cornbread [it is NOT gratis]………..but worth the price.

PRAYING………….that they won’t get indigestion?

Chicken……….on the bone……….raisins and rice.  Yummy.

One on the many friendly servers.

LAMB STEW…………was very heavy handed.  Could have been any thing!

The chef and his sous………working at lightning speed.

My MEATBALLS………..tasty….but what was all that foam?

Our waiter just kept bringing the food.

His famous MAC & CHEESE…..heavy……..thick……..gooey……….5 cheeeses [that’s four too many].    The salad had lychee nuts, cauliflower and water chestnuts.  Way to wierd.

“So where’s our desert”?

A cupcake.  Different…..gooey with two tiny dollops of sherbet.  Shudda just ordered the sherbet.

I love the ethnic diversity of the diners.

The wall paintings are clever.  Couldn’t have done better myself.

The loo is campy………”shabby chic”.

Orchids are a nice touch…………tho orchids are a bit passe.

Loo lighting……Murano Glass……nice touvh.

Wall art…….Norman Rockwell …..the ORIGINAL………..nice touch.

Pantry…….selling my favorite…..BISCUITS.

The bar seating……..laptops welcome.

An outdoor  area has been added for the summer.  But………double the people dining……….double the work for the kitchen.  Will the quality suffer?
