We’re kicking off Harlem EatUp! 2017 in style with a tribute concert to the great Billie Holiday, at The Apollo theater! Ten amazing acts including the gospel influenced jazz singer Lizz Wright; the Detroit soul singer Bettye LaVette; Taj Mahal’s daughter Deva Mahal, a vocal powerhouse blues singer; seventy-seven year old Stax recording artist and soul-legend William Bell; the great singer-songwriter Ruthie Foster; and more will perform songs from the Billie Holiday discography. One of the highlights will be the Alvin Ailey Dance Company returning to the Apollo stage to perform its modern piece “Portrait of Billie,” which originally premiered in 1959.
Get your tickets today to this very special one-night-only event at The Apollo!

Citi Market Challenge
Our Founding Sponsor Citi hosted a cooking competition March 28 at Hot Bread Kitchen in East Harlem that challenged restaurants Belle Harlem, Harlem Pizza Co, and Tsion Cafe to cook up what they would serve at Harlem EatUp! Congratulations to all and to the winner, Tsion Cafe with its Ethiopian chicken stew on injera bread. Delicious! Tsion Cafe will be at Harlem EatUp! at both the Ultimate Grand Tasting and in Citi’s tent in the Marketplace at The Stroll on Saturday May 20 and Sunday May 21 in Morningside Park. Come taste what all the fuss was about! Thanks to Citi for supporting Harlem restaurants and putting on such a fun event.
Bordeaux Pop Up Tasting
The restaurants participating in our Dine In Harlem Series tasted through over 100 amazing Bordeaux wines at this Harlem event April 3 and are now deciding which ones to pour at their Dine Ins! Each course they serve will be paired with a Bordeaux wine: could be a sparkling, a white, a red, a rosé, or a dessert wine. Bordeaux makes them all! Thanks to Bordeaux Wine Council (official wine sponsor of the Dine-In Harlem dinners) for organizing. Get your tickets to one of the Dine Ins and taste the food, and the wines, that celebrate Harlem’s ever evolving culinary landscape!
