The Best Harlem Brunches

Harlem is known for many things. Most famously for the Harlem Renaissance, which included some of the best Jazz musicians to ever grace the planet. But with Harlem becoming increasingly gentrified, there have been swankier restaurants entering the famous, diverse neighborhood. So much so that many Brooklynites have been known to battle the MTA just to try out the newest spot. If you’re up for a long subway adventure or are already living on the Upper West Side, then Harlem should be your next destination for a scrumptious brunch.

Red Rooster

Who didn’t know this was coming? Red Rooster, and the restaurant’s chef, Marcus Samuelsson, are an institution in cuisine. The famous Harlem eatery is also open for brunch (if you can get in, be aware that they don’t take reservations on Sundays). Like the global combination of cultures that Red Rooster compiles in its lunch and dinner dishes, the brunch menu reflects a southern hospitality (complete with chicken and waffles and biscuits and gravy) as well as odes to traditional Mexican breakfast options like chilaquiles. Not to mention: cornbread with honey butter.

For the bruncher who wants quality in their Sunday outing, Red Rooster is the place you can go to get it and impress your friends at the same time.
