Notable chef, Good breakfast spot

Named for the legendary Harlem speakeasy, Red Rooster serves up sophisticated soul food to a lively mix of Harlemites and visitors from all around the globe. The atmosphere is warm: caramels, ivories, and browns with bentwood furniture and a wall of eye-catching chalkboard graphics surrounding the window to the open kitchen. Seven days a week, live music reverberates off the original-art-covered walls. As for the food, chef Marcus Samuelsson's menus reflect the multicultural layers of the neighborhood and his Swedish background with favorites like the Fried Yard Bird and Helga's Meatballs. Reservations are available online 30 days in advance and the restaurant always fills up, so be sure to plan ahead.

Downstairs at Ginny's Supper Club, every Sunday starts with a gospel brunch where you can indulge in the Bird, Gravy, & Waffle topped with bourbon syrup and take in a performance by Vy Higginsen's Gospel Choir of Harlem. There are two shows, at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., free of charge.
