Time Out says

The menu at this West Harlem sports-lounge curiously combines soul food and sushi. Jamell Williams (67 Orange Street) takes care of the down-home eats, doling out candied whipped sweet potatoes, crab cakes with Cajun rémoulade and fried chicken over red-velvet waffles. Employing Asian touches like soy-ginger glaze, Williams also bridges the gap between his all-American fare and chef Chan Liang's menu at the LED-lit sushi bar. The Masa alum composes lobster rolls with ranch-mango sauce and a sea urchin shooter with Japanese mint and ponzu sauce. Settle into a plush black banquette to watch a game on one of 32 flatscreens while sipping a Southern-inspired cocktail—the P.Y.T. features peach schnapps, citrus liqueur, cranberry juice and cola—or a self-service tap beer, including Blue Moon and Brooklyn Lager.
