☞ EAT: Mojo
Harlem's first boutique restaurant. This weekend's warm weather brought out the well-heeled crowd to the area's newest dining spot, Mojo. The interior is definitely high on Hollywood Regency glamour and actually feels more like a new restaurant in London with its more daring design sensibilities. Even more exciting is that the food is just as bold and successful. Contemporary Southern could be an appropriate description of the menu, with an emphasis on the contemporary part. For dessert, check out the Belgian chocolate sliders with sliced strawberry and kiwi, encased in miniature sweet rolls. Visually provocative--and a wonder to experience. This restaurant should top your list for this week's dinner reservation. 185 Saint Nicholas Avenue, entrance on 119th Street. Tel.(212) 280-1924. Subway 116th St (B, C), 125th St (A, C, B, D), 116th St (2, 3).
