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).

Great food, good prices. But the real reason I keep coming back is the amazingly professional and attentive staff. This guys really make you feel right at home, especially Paul! Two big thumbs up!! 👍🏼 👍🏼

The best brunch, delicious cocktails, and open way late with live music. Staple of the neighborhood.

This place is one of my favorites. Everything I've tried here has been not only flavorful but also special. And both brunch and dinner are great - they have a good boozy brunch deal. Plus the restaurant is very cute, the staff is very friendly and the place just has a nice atmosphere - there's even live jazz occasionally! I would highly recommend.

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.
