The jazz scene is thriving in Harlem, where you can get dinner while listening to live music at places like Shrine and Ginny's Supper Club. Upstairs from Ginny's is Marcus Samuelsson's Red Rooster Harlem, one of the most popular soul food restaurants in New York. Red Rooster features southern classics like fried yard bird and baked mac & greens, but also offers international-inspired fare like gravlax with pickled beets or meatballs with lingonberries. Dinner reservations are a challenge, so try Red Rooster for lunch or earlybird dining on a weekday. For the best gumbo in New York, check out Creole in East Harlem. Cajun food accompanies nightly live entertainment starting at 8:30pm, but come early for a buzzing happy hour. Some of the best African restaurants in New York are found in Harlem, too. La Marmite Restaurant on Frederick Douglass Blvd specializes in South African cuisine, and Kaloum on W 116th has good Ethiopian.
