If you’ve been to or have lived in New York City in the last few years, you probably seen the transformation taking place in Harlem. It has undergone a complete make over, from the residents, to the real estate and commerce, and lastly the food.

When I first moved to NYC 10 years ago, Harlem was widely known for “Soul Food”. However, this is not case anymore. It seems like every other week a new eatery is opening up. Harlem’s food scene is now a reflection of the diversity of New York City as a whole. 

One of the newest additions to the neighborhood is Lolo’s Seafood ShackLocated on 116th Street in the neighborhood that is commonly referred to as Little Africa (because of the numerous African residents, stores and restaurants), Lolo’s has a Caribbean flair. However, it’s not limited to any one island in particular, it’s a bit of a mash up.
