In the stomping grounds of 1930s jazz greats Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie, owners Richard Parsons and Alexander Smalls honor Harlem’s musical legacy with this throwback supper club. Black-and-white portraits of bygone crooners hang on the walls; a patchwork graphic of Louis Armstrong backs the cherrywood bar; and a restored 1948 mural of Charlie Christian, Hot Lips Page and Tony Scott anchors the stage, where a house band plays nightly. The cabernet-hued dining room hosts three jacket-required seatings, offering elevated low-country fare: lobster-and-shrimp casserole with crawfish gravy, and dry-aged Wagyu rib eye with bone marrow butter and black-truffle glaze.
