New Harlem Besame Restaurant, a Taste of Latino Soul in Harlem
Central Harlem, New York- Grammy-Award winning YeraSon will performed at the grand opening of New Harlem Besame Restaurant Bar & Lounge, the creation of the father and son team Bernardo Rubie and Osei Rubie, on Friday, December 19, 2014, at 7pm. These seasoned businessmen and Harlem residents felt it would be a major benefit for the community to enliven the corner of 124th Street and Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard, as opposed to finding a location on Lenox or Frederick Douglass Avenue. Friday, they debut their restaurant with a performance by YeraSon, a New York-based Cuban Charanga Orchestra that won a 2013 Grammy Award for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media for their work on Woody Allen’s Academy Award-winning film, Midnight in Paris.
The blended Latin Soul menu truly embodies Afro-Latino cuisine and is designed to showcase the most preferred dishes of Latin countries with a touch of soul. New Harlem Besame is proud to share a flavor-filled menu that will include ribs marinated in guava sauce, chicken breast marinated in garlic sauce, its authentic recipe for guacamole, jerk chicken wings and much more that will leave customers salivating. The drink menu will include iconic Latino drinks like its signature Mojito’s and Margaritas (frozen & non-frozen) that are available in numerous varieties, as well as its Sangria. New Harlem Besame will also offer a full assortment of tequila to tantalize the palate while patrons engage in the ambiance and enjoy live music.
Located in the exact location of boxing great and businessman Sugar Ray Robinson’s Harlem Renaissance restaurant and bar ‘Sugar Ray’s’, New Harlem Besame will honor his legacy with large photographs of him as well as other memorabilia. Other visually pleasing works of art at New Harlem Besame include a unique, hand-crafted mahogany wood piece imported from West Africa. The wood that frames the bar is a work of art in itself, as it was treated by an Ebanista (master carpenter) who performed a staining process with all of the wood throughout the restaurant.
A family of entrepreneurs, restaurateurs and self-taught cooks precedes this father and son team. The father and Grandfather, Denis Rubie, lovingly known as Don Dennis, owned and operated a hotel and restaurants in Costa Rica. This team will continue the legacy of entrepreneurship through the opening of New Harlem Besame Restaurant. Bernard and Osei Rubie have a commitment to the community of Harlem and will seek to provide jobs to long-time residents of the community.
With its flavor-filled Latin Soul menu, exquisite décor and entertaining nightlife, New Harlem Beseme is expected to be the place to be in Harlem when this highly anticipated restaurant, bar and lounge opens on Friday, December 19, 2014.
