☞ INTRODUCING: The Nook at Red Rooster

The Nook at Red Rooster Harlem has now reinvented itself to provide quick and affordable bites for those on the go.  Located at the restaurant entry at 310 Lenox Avenue, The Nook now sells specialty savory items and sweets which are an extension of Red Rooster Harlem’s global comfort food.  Sandwiches will include the Chickety Split, fried chicken thigh served on a biscuit with sweet chili mayo and Haitian pikliz ($6.95); Hoagie Svenska, a soft pretzel bun piled with Helga’s meatballs, quick pickles and lingonberry mayo ($6.95); and Atta Boy, a freshly baked roti wrap filled with fried plantain, yucca and curried lentils ($7.95).

Sweet offerings will include cakes, cookies and pastries such as Lingon Bullar, brioche dough rolled in cinnamon sugar and lingonberry jam ($1.95); Yamma Jamma Coffee Cake, sweet potato cake layered with mission fig jam, topped with cinnamon streusel (2.95); and “A” Train Special, a curry-spiced oatmeal blueberry cookie with a light cream cheese filling ($1.50).

A variety of drinks will also be available including hot and cold Ambessa tea, from the line of four teas Marcus Samuelsson recently launched with Harney & Sons. The Nook will be open seven days a week, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday; and from 10:00 a.m. to 5: 30 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays; with breakfast service commencing shortly.

  2. I can't wait to take the "A" Train! Special!!!!!

    Sounds like a brilliant idea and one that seems to have been germinating for a while as that space was mostly done up for take away coffee etc. Marcus has just done it in a far more creative way with really interesting offerings. Very exciting times.
