France has officially arrived in Harlem
It’s like Rive Gauche in the heart of Harlem: Chez Lucienne, Harlem’s first French bistro. This inviting eatery was opened in early 2009. Add to the mix executive chef Thomas Obaton, who cooked with master chef Guy Savoy in Paris, and you have a body of experience and talent that delivers a memorable dining experience. Bistro classics such as Coq au Vin, Steak frites, Boeuf Bourguignon, Mussels with frites and Tuna Tartare are some of the favorite picks on a menu of traditional French dishes, an extensive wine list, exotic cocktails, and scrumptious desserts. The reasonably priced prix-fixe lunch special is one of the best bargains in Harlem. The sixty-seat eatery, with comfortable and inviting décor that includes powder blue banquettes, also offers outdoor dining during late spring, summer, and early fall. The friendly and professional service, authentic French music wafting in the background, and quality food at affordable prices makes this place a winner. Check out their live entertainment on Saturday night when they have a new live band every week playing jazz, R&B, soul and Afro-beats. Because of its popularity, advance reservations are recommended.

Literally a guide in my pocket

I can only subscribe to what other people already have told about the guide. It’s just great that I can read a place description, actually give a call its manager, find it on a map and even hook up on its Twitter channel to keep my eye on it. Very smart!
