It's never easy to follow in the footsteps of a legend but the Harlem Grill successfully fills the twin storefronts that for over sixty years housed Well's Restaurant. Curtained windows and a blacked-out door give off a furtive feel from the street, but the interior, a lounge-like space, is warm. Tables are oriented toward a stage, creating a supper club vibe. The design is of-the-moment, with plush chairs that flare out at their tops, matching a trio of trapezoidal mirrors on a pleated-leather wall. With such sceney potential, the attention paid to the food comes as a surprise. Chef Tyson Jordan, most recently employed at the Redeye Grill, is deft at flavor juxtapositions: Strawberries sync with arugula, the bitterness tempered by creamy bits of goat cheese; grilled shrimp are perfectly charred and accompanied by a subtle, white oxtail jus; and the signature dish, red snapper, is cooked and served in a clay pot, with a hearty jumble of tomatoes and garlic set against the sugarcane tones of spicy andouille sausage. Sunday gospel brunches feature the Well’s classic of chicken and waffles, keeping an old tradition alive within the confines of this stylish new space.


Live gospel, blues, jazz, and old-school R&B are among the  musical styles that can be found on the stage here.
