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.

Love this place; just a few blocks from my son and daughter-in-law when I visit Harlem, NYC. The atmosphere is rustic with exposed brick and artwork. The staff welcoming, the service attentive. The food is amazing with a Jamaican vibe. Salads are plentiful, the burgers...More

Went there two times during our vacation. I do recommend a visit there. Wide selection of food and it's all freshly made.

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
