Breakfast

“I like to start my morning at Il Caffe Latte (breakfast for two $18), a low-key café with bracing coffee and delicious croissants.”

Museum

“From there, it’s a short stroll to the Studio Museum in Harlem, where chief curator Thelma Golden showcases rising talent (Julie Mehretu and Kara Walker exhibited here before they appeared at MoMA).”

Lunch

“The authentic Amor Cubano (dinner for two $42) serves an excellent Cuban sandwich with roast pork and fried plantains.” Garden “To relax, I enjoy walking in the Conservatory Garden, in Central Park just off East 105th Street.”

Shop

“At Swing, the contemporary housewares could easily hold their own in Stockholm or SoHo.”

Dinner

“The 5 & Diamond (dinner for two $90) has innovative American dishes like shrimp-and-grits hush puppies.”

Film

“Harlem’s creative side is on view at the edgy Maysles Cinema, where films such as the recent Harlem Homegrown series are screened.”

Samuelsson’s Red Rooster Harlem opens this month at 310 Lenox Avenue.
