The Cecil

Recommended by : Carla Hall (Chef, TV Personality)

Cuisine:African. Price: $$$. Location: .

This restaurant in the heart of Harlem showcases African cooking techniques with beautiful results. Unlike any other menu in Manhattan, the bold and exotic flavors in every dish make this restaurant a must-visit in that neighborhood. Chef Carla Hall is a huge fan, and recommends the Coriander Roasted Carrots, Plantain Kelewele, Collard Greens Salad, and Tamarind Glazed Oxtails – but it’s worth trying as much on the unique menu as possible.
