Farafina Cafe – Harlem’s Local Lounge Charged with Energy and Culture

You’re looking for African Cuisine in New York.  If you’re familiar with either, you’ll know that there are many places in New York City where you can grab a bite.  But only one perfectly entwines the culturally rich experience of African food and music.

Farafina Café & Lounge in Harlem is a welcoming African Fusion spot that comes to life as a frequent host for live international musicians. This is a hip spot that brings French and American style food to the table with an African twist.  A notable example is one of the cocktails on the menu: the Bissap Mojito, inspired by Senegalese Bissap drink made from hibiscus.

The food is excellent.  A perfect combination of spicy and sweet.  Seasoned to perfection.  But if you’re going on the weekend, you better get in quick.  Farafina fills up fast because of the winning combination of amazing food and live music.  Jazz, Salsa, World Music, R&B, and Soul are among some of the music you’ll hear played by guest artists. Spoken word poetry events are not uncommon.

The entire experience is charged with energy and culture, and just might be Harlem as it was meant to be.
