After months of hits to the local food scene due to the pandemic, Harlem Restaurant Week returns this fall—the only neighborhood program to do so this season, according to its organizer, Harlem Park to Park.

Starting today—and continuing through the end of October—55 Harlem restaurants are featuring special prix fixe menus and other deals to promote their diverse offerings. Look for $25 prix fixe lunches, $35 prix fixe dinners, under-$10 eats.

Participating eateries include Harlem destinations like Red Rooster (the $35 prix fixe lunch includes either fried catfish or chicken & waffles), celebrity chef-helmed newcomers like JJ Johnson's rice-focused Fieldtrip ($9.99 gets you a beef, chicken or veggie bowl and a drink or yucca chips), and foodie favorites such as West African comfort food spot Teranga (the Yassa Yassa grilled chicken bowl and a cocktail are $25).

This time around HRW's homepage prominently features pandemic-friendly categories, like restaurants offering takeout and outdoor seating.

Check out the full list here–you can browse by neighborhood and interests such as "cocktails," "date night" and "under $10"–and get out there to show your support.
