New York (Tadias) – Chef Entrepreneur Marcus Samuelsson opened the doors of Red Rooster Harlem to friends, neighbors and media at an event last month designed to give a sneak peak of his new restaurant.

The evening, co-hosted by Uptown Magazine, attracted an eclectic group of New Yorkers – including Harlem residents, business leaders, politicians, artists, museum curators, TV personalities and more. The two-floor space, decorated for the event with stunning photographs featuring local artists, includes a lounge downstairs where guests were treated to a memorable piano performance and live DJ music.

In the following video, Marcus gives Tadias a brief tour of Red Rooster Harlem. Samuelsson notes the availability of this new space for world music entertainment programs, including live shows by Ethiopian singers and performers.

    As a longtime resident of Harlem, I love Marcus for what he just added to the vibe of this great neighborhood. He just brought what we go looking for downtown to uptown. As my wife says, Red Rooster just added value to our property. Before we used to proudly say we live 4 short blocks away from the World famous Sylvia’s soul food restaurant and Appolo. Now, we are even more proud to add Red Rooster Harlem to the list. By the way, for those of you who do not know, Sylvia and Red Rooster are just across the street from each other. Of Course, we also have Star Bucks and Setepani not far from there. It is great! Thank you Marcus and I hope you succeed for our sake. We will certainly help in that regard. Happy Holidays and much love!

    Marcus you hit the nail on the head. Key doro (Amharic for Red Rooster) means testy but elegant at the same time. Mad respect for you brother!!!

    Hey NJ, thanks for translating. I have to agree that he chose the best name. Qey Doro (Red Rooster) is also short for Doro Wot. There is Qey Doro Wot (with berbere) or Alicha doro wot (without berbere). So Qey Doro (Red Rooster) is the real enchilada!! Good job Macus and good luck!!

    I’m delighted Red Rooster finally opened in Harlem! This restaurant is a great addition to the neighborhood. Thank you, Marcus Samuelsson! P.S. I also have some great background music to set an even more wonderful dining experience.
