Harlem Bespoke: Chef Joseph Johnson's casual eatery called Field Trip quietly opened in the past few days on Lenox just south of 116th Street and we were able to drop by this afternoon to have quick bite.  As luck would have it, Chef JJ himself was on site doing press rounds and we were able to see the local celebrity in action while ordering one of the artisan rice bowls that was on the menu. This is one of our most anticipated openings for 2019 and we were definitely ready to eat.

We will eventually try out all of the different types rice in each dish but only started off with the salmon bowl for $11.99 which had black rice, piri piri sauce, pineapple, edamame, baby corn and scallion as garnish on top.  Everything is served up in a earth-friendly paper bowl and has a fast food aesthetic but the flavors turned out to be spectacular.  Prices are also really decent with the crispy chicken bowls with Carolina Gold Rice starting out at $9.99,  veggi jollof basmati at $8.99 and other options such as braised beef with Texas brown rice are only $10.99 per order.  Another option that sounded amazing was the shrimp bowl with sticky rice, green curry sauce and toasted coconut for $11.99 which along with the salmon are the highest priced offerings.

Other points to note is that the roughly 40 seater has high tables up front and more formal seating in the back for those who want a more leisurely dining experience.  Foodies will definitely want to drop by this smart spot in Central Harlem during lunch or dinner hours since this is probably one of the best deals to be found uptown.   More on Field Trip can be found in our past post: LINK
