    The Cecil has a stylish dining room and a cool vibe, but the real reason to go here is the eclectic menu. Standouts include oxtail dumplings, feijoada, “mini yard dogs,” and the fried guinea hen. Leer más

    Fantastic brunch with lightning service. Come for the Grilled Roti Pizza and Duck Confit Waffle stay for the live music and unlimited mimosa bar.

    The menu has things like deviled eggs, oxtail dumplings, a salad of heirloom beets and Brussels sprouts, a wagyu rib burger, duck two ways, and fried guinea hen. Entrees are priced in the mid-20s.

    The Cecil shares a kitchen with the jazz club Minton's, and though the menu is similar, this place is more casual. The Wagyu beer burger is delightfully soft and the bun holds up well. Leer más

    Went here for restaurant week but decided to order from the regular menu after talking to the bartender. The feijoada = all the spicy deliciousness I could ever want! Get the collard green salad too!

    Beautiful Afro-Asian decor and really inviting. You must try the Braised Goat Dumplings. For my entree I had the Tamarind-Glaze Oxtails which was really delicious.

    The collard greens salad is a perfect starter. Where else in Harlem can you get raw collards on a plate? The Masai drink is delicious. Try the rice and veg wok bar. Vibe is a bit relaxed but elegant.

    Great cocktails & a really different take on southern, asian inspired cuisine. Be sure to try both the dumplings & the squid appetizers. The fried chicken special I had was pretty spectacular.

    Lamb ribs are orgasmic, real yummy for meat lovers, followed by Cecil's take on Fejuada(Brazilian) is incredible - be warned though it's spicy and your tastebuds will dance with spicy flavors!

    The West African beef suya is thin-sliced in the traditional Nigerian style and rubbed in onion, garlic and ginger powders. It packs an unexpected, barbecue-like punch. Leer más

    Points for creativity are deserved at this Afro-American-Asian eatery, although the execution falls short. The oxtail dumplings and Brisket and Eggs are some of the stronger dishes.

    The cocktails are eccentric! I had three - Masai, Cherry Blossom, and the Solstice! This restaurant uses cinnamon in a lot of their dishes. The spicy sqiud (calamari) is to die for!!!

    Both the oxtail dumplings & the bass were to die for. Handmade breads, wine pairings, very much loved this place.

    Chef JJ Johnson's menu crisscrosses the globe, mixing together African, Southern American and Asian cuisines to form standout dishes like sake-braised lamb ribs and citrus jerk wild bass. Zagat

    Most incredible cocktails and dishes. Cocktails are unique but not contrived. Dishes are pure soul food that's asian/afro inspired. Service is relaxed, sometimes a bit slow, but incredibly gracious.

    Brunch is so on point it's insane. Go for the bottomless mimosas and any of the entrees, and a side of okra fries. Save room for dessert too

    Trendy spot with some really great cuisine going on. Make sure you try the barbecue ribs with cornbread cake alongside a glass of African honey mead.

    The menu can seem scattered, until you relax and accept that a dish might include collard greens, the Northern African spice blend harissa, and Chinese sausage, and it'll all make sense on the plate. Leer más

    Go for the shared plates that have a homey, eclectic taste. You must try the casserole of rosemary & pepper ham-spiked mac n' cheese.

    Food here is beyond. Everything was delicious. Even the salads, bread basket (with tasty dips), but especially oxtail dumplings and cocktails.

    If there's a better spot in Harlem, I don't know it. Definitely get the pineapple black rice and go crazy with whatever else you want to eat. Skip the spinach salad.

    Chicken and Yam pancakes, so good! The yam pancake is just sweet enough that you don't need syrup.

    Great Sunday jazz brunch and a wide spread of menu options - I recommend the chicken and sweet plantain waffles! Slow service, though.

    Beautiful location, presentation, staff, and crowd. Great for dates and business dinners. Or hang out at the bar and be friendly.

    Interesting & tasty (and mildly expensive, maybe just a touch overpriced? -- the alcohol is where they really nail you) american food with an african twist (oxtail, kenyan beer, etc). Service is good.

    The food is great but too much hype for what it's worth, and the block is a bit too sketchy (not much else there). Anyway, a great menu and nice vibe for dates and groups. Gets busy!

    The following are exceptional: Ox-tail Dumplings, Brisket and Eggs (my fave), Duo of Dogs, Caribbean French Toast, Duck Confit with Yam Waffles. Skip the Kimchi Bloody Mary: Overpriced and mediocre.

    If you're looking to have a low key experience definitely sit in the main dining room. But if you're looking for a lounge vibe and possibly a little people watching stay in the bar area.

    Had the hen (spiced well), jumbo shrimp (flavored spice- a must). Cocktails were average. Ambience was casual chic sans the pretentiousness. Different take in soul food.

    The Sahara Nights cocktail is a perfect drink! It is a blend of Chandon, apricot liqueur, strawberry puree, and lime juice.

    Try the Feizoada- the oxtail flavors the whole dish. Expect your table neighbors to ask what you ordered because it smells so darn good.

    The ginger "beer" is made in house and you can tell the difference. You won't get a better dark n' stormy in around.
