Sugar Hill’s new destination for live music and creative smokehouse cuisine is now open! Operated by musicians, artists, hospitality veterans, and Harlem locals, The Porch is a great neighborhood spot for lunch with friends, drinks at the bar or to catch a live show. Executive Chef Matt Fisher served as pitmaster for top NYC BBQ spots Fletcher’s and Rub and he’s created a menu of Cajun-influenced American Smokehouse dishes that will simply light you up. The Porch’s artist-in-residence program features acclaimed local musicians to carry forward the proud history of jazz on St. Nicholas Ave. Live sets Thursday - Sunday from 9 pm bring jazz traditions together with contemporary music styles including Reggae, R&B, and Hip-Hop.

    We enjoyed our first meal at the newly opened Porch and living in the neighborhood we will definitely return. They are still working out some kinks with the kitchen. Our charcuterie appetizer arrived with our main courses. The shrimp beignets were excellent. My husband’s Cajun shrimp entree was good but could have used more kick and flavor and the choice of farro is a bit off. The service was outstanding and once the Jazz set began the place truly hits its mark. It’s a wonderful addition to the excellent restaurants in Harlem and should be on everyone’s list to try.

    The food was very average. We ordered the charcuterie plate with smoked fish and a variety of cheeses. They were out of cheeses and all we got were two pieces of salmon and some crème fraîche. The brisket sandwich was very good. They could use some entrées on the menu rather than lunch/bar food The entertainment jazz/tapdancer were excellent and a great value. I would go back.
