The Grange Bar & Eatery

Harlem meets the farm at this locavore bistro and bar, outfitted with mason jars, weathered white-oak floors and antique chandeliers. Chef Alan Vargas (Thymari) oversees a comfort-food menu rooted in seasonal produce. Having scoured nearby farms like Old Chatham and Coach Farm, Vargas dispatches seared crab cakes with celery-parsnip slaw; watermelon with feta, arugula and mint; and a roasted-beet salad with lime yogurt, almonds and goat-cheese croutons. At the 40-foot-long butcher-block bar, find a beverage program designed by Dead Rabbit head bartender Jack McGarry—cocktails include the Grange Collins (Farmer's Gin, pomegranate liqueur, basil, lemon juice and soda) and the Convent Stroll (Heaven Hill whiskey, ginger, honey, lemon juice and soda).

As a Harlem resident, I take such pride in the local hot spots. Not only is this place organic and perfectly sized for a date night (big groups, not so much) but the menu is so creative and spot on with it's combinations. I would recommend the Beet Burger, an unlikely meat substitute full of flavor and perfectly paired with a smattering of locally grown veggies. A few blocks away from the 1, A, and C, it's not to hard to get to and definitely worth the trip uptown!


I love this place.  The food is excellent.  The kale salad is crisp and fresh with a tangy dressing.  The strawberry and arugula salad is rich (could suffice for a light meal) and tasty.  I've had most of the pasta dishes and they have been done perfectly al dante and well sauced.

The wine list is also the best in Harlem.

The vibe the owners and locals create is homey, while serene and stimulating simultaneously.  You know you can go in one evening, sit at the bar and have an interesting conversation about Harlem, culture, world politics, etc.
