After living in Harlem for years, star chef Marcus Samuelsson finally decided to open a restaurant in his neighborhood in 2011. The result has been a massive hit: food, art, style and scene all come together at the boisterous, buoyant Harlem comfort-food spot, which serves perfect fried chicken (the “Fried Yard Bird”) with a can of spicy seasoning on the side, along with a Swedish holdover from Samuelsson’s days at Aquavit, meatballs with lingonberry sauce. The dining room walls include an eclectic mix of chalkboard graphics and artwork by Sanford Biggers and Lorna Simpson.
