Harlem Shake, a neighborhood-oriented burger and milkshake joint embracing the Harlem of old, is Inspired by Harlem’s rich culture and energy. It is a go-to for familiar eats like griddled burgers, New York hot dogs and hand-spun organic shakes .
Harlem Shake’s menu also offers diners a taste of what it would have been like to set up shop in the restaurant 50+ years ago by taking a playful approach to classic burgers and fries. Set amid the clean yet well-worn ambiance, guests tuck into the signature Harlem Classics – two 2-ounce custom blend Pat la Frieda beef patties ground fresh daily and griddled smashed-style for crisp browning and served on a toasted Martin’s Potato Roll with house-made condiments. Specialties include the Pigskin Classic topped with crisp fried pork rinds, Hot Mess, a burger topped with cherry pepper -bacon relish, and the Jerk Fry Burger topped with jerk-seasoned, triple-cooked fries and smoked jerk mayo, as well as juicy turkey burgers and house-made vegan burgers. For a great night out the menu is rounded with a selection of bottled and draught beers and wines to accompany your juicy meal.
Anchoring the space and continuing the tribute to old New York is Harlem Shake’s “Wall of Fame” celebrating famous and notable patrons and friends with photos personally signed to the restaurant. From actors and musicians to politicians and athletes, each notable has a special connection to Harlem. Do not miss a trip to the bathroom, featuring a carefully curated display original "Jet" magazine covers spanning 6 decades, and outlining some of the most notable people and moments of recent African-American history.
