It’s that time of the year again for Harlemites to come out and celebrate, taste and shop the community. It’s Harlem Retail & Restaurant Week, brought to you by Harlem Park to Park (@harlemparktopark)!
From Aug. 15 to 31, select restaurants will be offering prix fixe three-course lunch and dinner for $20.13 and $30.13, respectively. Retailers will be offering select items ranging in price from $10.13 to $30.13.
This is a great time to catch up on all of the newly opened eateries, to re-dig in at an old favorite or to just grab a quick bite. There is a little something for everyone from Lenox Avenue to Frederick Douglas Boulevard.
Here are just some of the $30.13 prix fixe dinner menus that caught my eye.
In a hurry? Get your Dime Piece on at Harlem Shake with a burger, fries and soda. Papa John’s stays in the mix too with two large pizzas with two toppings and a two-liter bottle of soda for $20.13!
For a full list of participating restaurants and retailers, their menus, offerings, location and business hours, please visit www.facebook.com/harlemparktopark. Please do let me know what you discover and rediscover.
Enjoy, get eating and thanks for reading!
