Snapshot: The Cecil (Harlem)

The Cecil is a hidden gem in Harlem, serving authentic and delicious Afro / Asian / American influenced dishes. Brunch and/or Dinner @ The Cecil is anything but boring and during brunch, there is even live music. The menu changes often, but currently The Cecil is offering intriguing items such Oxtail Dumplings and Suya Short Ribs. One glance at the menu and you will find there is something for every adventurous taste bud.  Seriously, the food is AMAZING, bursting with delicious African flavors.  Therefore, if you haven’t had the opportunity to bless your tongue with some delicious food from The Cecil, I recommend you give them a try ASAP.
