Get A Taste Of Uptown At The 5th Annual Harlem EatUp! Festival

Now in its fifth year, the Harlem EatUp! Festival is striving to make sure that every New Yorker and tourist knows just how great – and great tasting – Harlem is.

From May 13 to 19, festival-goers can get a taste of special menus curated by local restauranteurs, with food by Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Harlem, Sisters Caribbean Cuisine, Trade Street Jam Co., Lee Lee’s Bakery, and more.

“Spending time in Harlem is a feast for the senses in so many ways,” said food critic and Top Chef host Gail Simmons in a release. “Its music, food, history, architecture and cultural relevance are unsurpassed, now more than ever.”

Check out what’s going down at this year’s events:

Before the festival really gets started, foodies can take part in a dinner with Chef Marcus Samuelsson, who is a culinary contributor to Red Rooster Harlem, Ginny’s Supper Club, Streetbird Express, Uptown Brasserie at John F. Kennedy Airport and many more restaurants around the world.

The first 20 Macy’s cardholders to show their card and check-in at 5 p.m. will be able to meet Samuelsson at a cocktail party after the dinner.
