We received official details this afternoon that Chef Marcus Samuelsson's second Harlem restaurant will be opening this coming Thursday, April 2nd.  Below is the description from the press kit received on what to expect from Red Rooster's more casual cousin positioned by the subway stop in South Harlem.  More photos to come later on today:

Located on the historic and newly revived Frederick Douglass Boulevard at 116th Street, Marcus' kitchenette will highlight the namesake 'bird' with complementary dishes that reflect Marcus' multicultural upbringing from Ethiopia to Sweden. The rotisserie chicken is offered with a variety of house-made sauces that include smoky bbq, jerk sauce, sweet soy, hot sauce and more, alongside other dishes with pop-culture references like General Ye's Chicken with crispy chicken, green beans, mango and peanuts, and a rich Bird Broth with kimchi and nori.

The 'Bird and Bread' section includes dishes like the Swediopian with doro wat chicken stew, injera, fresh cheese and a boiled egg, and taco-like Tack Tack, house-fermented tortillas that come with fillings like ripped rotisserie chicken, mole, pickled red onions, lettuce and cilantro or piri-piri spiced fish, pickled cucumber and avocado; the 'Noodles and Rice' section features dishes like Sho' Nuff Noodles with stir-fried noodles, cabbage, scallions and choice of chicken, shrimp, vegetables or tofu; and salads include The Fly Girl with black kale, romaine, green beans, toasted rice, and lime-coconut dressing; and sides include daily rotisserie vegetables, roasted green beans with chiles and peanuts, cornbread, pickles, fries, and others.

 Desserts like fresh warm cookies and the Sweet Dog, Marcus' take on the traditional Swedish dessert with brioche, almond paste and whipped cream, round out the menu. Cocktails, wine, beer and fresh fruit juices are also available.
