Who: Marcus Samuelsson
What: Ethiopian-born, Swedish-raised chef and restaurateur with restaurants in Harlem, NY
Where: Harlem, NY
How Much: Most entrees average under $35
Why: If you hang out in Harlem, you’ve probably already been to Red Rooster, which is a creation by chef and restaurateur, Marcus Samuelsson. To my excitement, Samuelsson has just blessed Harlem with a new restaurant named, Streetbird Rotisserie, a rotisserie chicken restaurant (yes, serving only chicken), which has its roots in street food from around the world, inspired by Harlem Americana. (I can’t wait to try). If you haven’t been to either of Samuelsson’s Harlem restaurants, I recommend going there sometime in the near future for some delicious food!
