I ordered take-out. The food was average, nothing extraordinary. The service was average. There was one woman server who was not very friendly. She seemed reluctant to answer or annoyed when I asked her questions about the restaurant (this was my first visit). I have...More

This place has a super nice vibe and food. The menu it´s not large but the items are well selected. The live music it´s also an interesting add. Love the area and the place, more places like this are needed.

Finished a graduation ceremony for my nephew and found The edge online trip advisor. 10 minute walk away from City College. My wife had the jerk salmon and I had the coconut fish sandwich. Great choices to say the least. Cozy and cool vibe.

As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has
played a vital role in the history of New York City.
Today, the neighbourhood is as vibrant as ever as new
businesses and developments go up next to local
institutions. The heart of the neighbourhood is
bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and
historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with
big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and
