Creole Restaurant – Harlem Travel Guide – Sutro World

French Quarter meets Harlem 

Owner Kevin Walters serves up not only Creole dishes reminiscent of the French Quarter but great jazz acts on a small, intimate stage in view of the dining room most nights. The kitchen plates up a unique interpretation of Creole – a blend of French, Spanish, African, and Native American influences – like spicy blackened catfish, Creole stewed chicken, blackened shrimp Napoleon, and several gumbo variations – even a vegetarian one. However, their signature dish – not to be missed are the sweet potato beignets (fried doughnuts).

In addition to great food, Creole offers one of East Harlem’s great bargains – either a $7 or $8 luncheon special served Mon–Fri from 12pm– 4pm.  Sundays they have brunch for $29 with unlimited mimosas.

Since opening, Creole has invigorated the uptown jazz scene especially Latin Jazz, which is only appropriate since Creole is located in the heart of Spanish Harlem, or as the locals say, El Barrio. This place is always jumping with top-notch entertainment, so check their web site calendar for the schedule.
