The restaurant celebrates the soul of the community and reinvigorates modern Harlem with a bit of nostalgia and a nod to pop culture. Harlem Shake is a NYC go-to for familiar eats like griddled burgers, New York hot dogs, and hand-spun shakes. A unique selection of regional sodas from across the country, a sophisticated wine and beer program, a breakfast menu and seasonal outdoor seating completes the offerings.
