Wonderful food, quite above anything we expected in this humble location - just indicative of the great things happening in Harlem. The salmon tartare was very tasty, as we're our two duck dishes.

Great with the choices of different Hookah flavors. A bit pricey. We ordered 2 appetizers, 2 drinks and the Hookah and ended up paying about 150.00. The Quesadillas were good I wouldn't recommend the chicken egg rolls. Made a reservation because we were told we needed one in order to be seated once we got there the hostess didn't even acknowledge that I was showing her I made reservations she just pointed for where she wanted us to sit. Overall cool experience More

First time...What a pleasant surprise. The entire staff could not have been nicer or more attentive. I love soup and eat it wherever I go..I had a white bean soup which was a generous, delicious and HOT( temperature) which was much appreciated. I had a seafood Risotto for my main dish and again it was delicious, ample size, fresh seafood and HOT(temperature). For desert I had a dish whose name I can't remember bit it was sort of a crepe with bananas and nutella. Do I have to say how delicious that was.. All that great food and servers who promptly responded to any request...A real gem More

Excellent menu, family run restaurant feel (in a good way- eg presumed owner greets you at the door), and good ambience and mood inside. I’d definitely go back, and be comfortable eating alone or with friends. The appetizer and salad portions are large - you might not need a main. The size of the bill can sneak up on you. More

We celebrated my son's graduation from Columbia with a late lunch here. Since we were between the busy lunch and dinner hours the place was quiet - which was lovely for conversation. Everyone was happy with their appetizers and entrees. We started with the brussel sprouts with poached egg and the mushroom toast dish. Both were delicious. Our table of seven tried burgers, mushroom ravioli, steak salad, etc. All were very tasty. This was my second time eating at The Grange and I look forward to other experiences when I am in NYC. More

Kingston, a Jamaican and Caribbean restaurant and bar is the only authentic Caribbean dining experience located in Harlem, the most diverse part of New York City. Kingston creates a euphoric feeling of nostalgia for a caribbean lax, calm and tranquil vacation with the music, energy and food offered which provides an escape from the fast paced New York City. The menu items are traditional Jamaican and Caribbean meals and beverages with a contemporary flare designed to appeal to an International market but still maintaining all crucial taste buds and flavors. Undeniably Caribbean culture, food and music has been impactful globally, regionally and locally. However, there are no Caribbean restaurant and or barwith a complete experience present in the area.

Discover Harlem

Renowned for its vibrant culture across music and literature, Harlem’s burgeoning restaurant scene has made it one of the most exciting neighborhoods in the five boroughs. Soul food is always on the menu, but now it has a modern twist—part gourmet, part classic comfort. And it’s not all chicken and waffles uptown. Ramen shops beckon with their slurpy noodles, and down-home seafood shacks sling salt water treasures. To spice it up, you can also explore NYC’s only Somali restaurant for savory pastries and other adventurous eats. Amidst the brownstones and history of Harlem, new flavors await.
