"Must Eats"

Red Rooster (Harlem): The beauty of this establishment is equally matched by that of the live music playing in the background. Clients will truly enjoy their menu which offers a breadth of mouthwatering delights, especially their deviled eggs and fried yard bird.

Tao (downtown): Tao does a splendid job of combining elegant dining with the perfect ambiance. Their flavorful offerings are in no short supply, but we highly recommend their bamboo steamed vegetable dumplings and mandarin sizzled fried rice with shrimp. Clients must also grace their taste buds with their chef’s roll with tuna, salmon, tobiko, and avocado.

Harlem Tavern (Harlem): This restaurant offers one of the best brunches in all of New York City. The great taste of the food is complemented by spacious outdoor seating and the live music playing in the background.
