☞ EAT: Bajan Bistro in East Harlem

Bajan Bistro is another business that started to appear close to East Harlem's La Marqueta and  DNAinfo takes a look at the restaurant that features cuisine from Barbados: LINK.  The location (just east of Park Avenue and 121st Street) apparently is a draw for folks who work in the area during the week and Caribbean ex-pats who are looking for some home cooking on the weekends.  There's more of a take-out feel to the place but informal seating seems to be available for guests who are looking for Bajan favorites such as Flying Fish steaks and savory patties made out of puff pastry.  We first noticed this restaurant in August but never got to see it open when covering the Fat Witch bakery facility around the corner: LINK


  1. This restaurant is much needed in this area, since most of everything is fast and unhealthy. I first heard about it when one of my co-workers said she ate there and the food is out of this world amazing. I love the ambiance, it's relaxing and a true Caribbean feeling just swipes you off your feet. Reality is that an hour for lunch is not enough to take it all in. There is a wall of pictures of Barbados and i just wanted to be there. The staff is always smiling and their suggestions are always on point.

  2. The food is amazing, and the owner is even more amazing! Very fast and clean service! I would recommend the bajan bistro to everyone! I am looking forward to visiting the place myself real soon and being a regular customer ...........Dottie Kougianos

    Love this restaurant for everything from clean to serene setting. You tend to forget your in East Harlem until you step out the door. The owner Fiona is always pleasant and smiling. See it for yourself.
