First Look at Ryan Skeen’s Harlem Enterprise, 5 & Diamond


A day after we shared details, as well as the menu, of the restaurant Ryan Skeen will open in Harlem this week, the chef has already become an uptown spokesman of sorts. One Tweet: “Heard this terrible rumor that Bruni didnt see a reason to eat in Harlem? I feel its [sic] about time to give him a reason to.” And another: “Fried Chicken in most Harlem restaurants is like steak at Lugers Steaks based off politics not quality, except for Amy Ruths … I am shocked.” Skeen doesn’t have fried chicken on the menu, but he does have roasted black bass with quinoa, and you can see that dish, and more, in our slideshow.
