INTRODUCING: HARLEM HAVANA FESTIVAL 2017
This year, Harlem/Havana—the international arts, culinary and educational exchange created in celebration of the rich connection between these two iconic cities—will explore the theme, Harlem: Home of Immigrants, Honoring New York City’s International Diversity. The festival explores the international cultural influences that make Harlem a celebrated home for immigrants from all nations through arts and educational programming. The culinary initiative will also expand this year to include Senegalese and Dominican restaurants, alongside Cuban and Harlem soul food restaurants.
Through this initiative, the Festival has partnered with Samuelsson’s famous Red Rooster Harlem and Streetbird Rotisserie restaurants, along with Sylvia’s, Oso, La Fonda Del Sol, Harlem’s Floridita Cuban Restaurant, Melba’s, Ponty Bistro, Coogan’s, Victor’s Café, Malecon, and 809 Sangria Bar & Grill to feature special selections of Cuban, Cuban-inspired or Cuban-fusion dishes and cocktails as part of this year’s festival.
