harlem glamour. good bloody mary. brunch at red rooster.

marcus samuelsson's  house recipe bloody mary is unique and delicious!  a slightly crunchy spice mix with surprising coriander taste.
the food was exceptional as one would expect. link: red rooster

the great actor, author, and activist ruby dee happened to be dining at red rooster and on her way out she stopped to sing wade in the water with the band. the band was playing the song as ruby dee was leaving.  "wade in the water- that's my song!" she exclaimed- and she joined in to much applause.

her look- ...please, let me have just a fraction of  this much beauty and style when i'm "grown up" (!)  (and ruby dee is so cool i'm sure that's fake fur!)

a more dear to my heart but less celebrated harlem spot here- the fabulous dive, st. nick's pub.  sadly, now closed- apparently due to all the unregulated happy times people had there.

rock out flood song here when the levee breaks led zeppelin
