One of the most interesting things about the food of the African diaspora is how closely it connects the people who prepare it, often without them even realizing it. There are several characters that almost all cuisines of the African Diaspora share: seasoning technique; cooking techniques such as stewing and frying; the prevalence of starchy mashes or porridges eaten with stews and soups or on their own. Among African, Latin, and Caribbean cuisines, ingredients are nearly identical, most likely due to the similarity in climate. Tropical foods such as plantains, cassava, coconuts, and palm oil are staples in West African and Afro-Brazilian cooking. The distinctive ingredients of southern cuisine, as well as the style of cooking them, have been common for centuries in Africa.

We invite you to taste our rich heritage in the bountiful garden!

All dishes are homemade much of our greens and salads are grown in the garden:

  • Meat Plate - $10 (3 choices of meat)

Join us this summer for special movie screenings of Ingmar Bergman films, part of a worldwide celebration to mark the 100-year anniversary of the birth of renowned director and writer Ingmar Bergman (1918 - 2007).

Bring a blanket and picnic and enjoy the summer night.

Smiles of a Summer Night
After fifteen films that received mostly local acclaim, the 1955 comedy Smiles of a Summer Night (Sommarnattens leende) at last ushered in an international audience for Ingmar Bergman. In turn-of-the-century Sweden, four men and four women attempt to navigate the laws of attraction. During a weekend in the country, the women collude to force the men’s hands in matters of the heart, exposing their pretensions and insecurities along the way. Chock-full of flirtatious propositions and sharp witticisms delivered by such Swedish screen legends as Gunnar Björnstrand and Harriet Andersson, Smiles of a Summer Night is one of cinema’s great comedies.

Paul de Marseul (Arestrup) is the passionate, demanding proprietor of his prestigious family wine estate in Saint-Émilion. But he has no faith in his son, Martin (Deutsch), who works at the vineyard.

Can Paul turn against his own blood and choose Philippe as the rightful heir to his family estate?

The 25th annual Harlem Meer Performance Festival brings the best local talent to Central Park! Enjoy a variety of performances featuring multi-cultural music and dance, family-friendly entertainment, and more while admiring the lakeside views.

Entre Amigos (Among Friends) are a two trombone-led salsa group based in Brooklyn and presided over by the formidable figure of Willie Villegas. In addition to co-leading Entre Amigos, playing timbales with the group, and producing their albums, Willie hosts the cable TV show Salsa En La Calle. No newcomer to the U.S. salsa scene, Willie has played with such luminaries as Joe Quijano, Joe Cuba, Eddie Palmieri, Frankie Ruiz, Lalo Rodríguez, Tito Puente, José Fajardo, and Paquito Guzmán.

Entre Amigos is an appropriate name for a group of talented Brooklyn-born musicians who complement each other with their versatile playing and energetic solos.

  • Johnson Morales: Pianist and co-leader who gives you an explosive style and originality beyond the normal realm.
  • Carlos Velasquez: Bassist who sets the foundation and anchors the groove.
  • Edwin Vega: Congas enhances the rhythm along with Pablito Bilbraut on bongos giving Entre Amigos that special nostalgic New York style.
  • Gamaliel Bonilla: Lead trombonist with a strong sound and bold solos, and also sings background vocals.
  • Jose Rivera: second trombonist and minor percussion adds flavor to a tee.
  • Frankie Otero: Lead vocals takes the challenge of singing with Entre Amigos knowing that at live performances he has to invent new lyrics on the spot.

All ages are welcome.

Check out the full performance lineup!

Join us this summer for special movie screenings of Ingmar Bergman films, part of a worldwide celebration to mark the 100-year anniversary of the birth of renowned director and writer Ingmar Bergman (1918 - 2007).

Autumn Sonata
Autumn Sonata was the only collaboration between cinema’s two great Bergmans: Ingmar, the iconic director of The Seventh Seal, and Ingrid, the monumental star of Casablanca. The grand dame, playing an icy concert pianist, is matched beat for beat in ferocity by the filmmaker’s recurring lead Liv Ullmann, as her eldest daughter. Over the course of a day and a long, painful night that the two spend together after an extended separation, they finally confront the bitter discord of their relationship. This cathartic pas de deux, evocatively shot in burnished harvest colors by the great Sven Nykvist, ranks among Ingmar Bergman’s major dramatic works.
