Red Rooster Is Not Only A Restaurant

When I opened Red Rooster, I envisioned my restaurant opening its doors to the neighborhood. In this New York Daily News article, Amanda P. Sidman discusses how Red Rooster is not only a restaurant, but also "a new center of the Harlem community." I shared with her some of the most important elements of my experience so far at Red Rooster. We've employed 80 neighborhood residents, and hired a woman who I heard singing in the 125th Street subway station to perform gospel music at Red Rooster's new weekend brunch.

I hope to continue making Red Rooster a gathering point for Harlem. Read the full article here and get the recipe for my grandmother Helga's Swedish Meatballs.
