A fun place to visit, but the service was a bit slow. I ordered the skillet-fried chicken. I enjoyed it, but it was to much for me to finish.

A less expensive option in Marcus Samuelsson's culinary empire - down-home soul food with a widely global influence. Eclectic decor as well. My fellow diner complained that the music was simply too loud, but it is influenced by hip hop, after all, so the music...More

Harlem’s great new food scene is all around, and I wasted an evening meal on Streetbird. The rotisserie chicken is hard, poorly seasoned, small and sad. Well I was sad anyway. The fried rice with egg: can’t mess that up, right? Wrong. I thought that...More

As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has
played a vital role in the history of New York City.
Today, the neighbourhood is as vibrant as ever as new
businesses and developments go up next to local
institutions. The heart of the neighbourhood is
bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and
historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with
big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and

Streetbird is a rotisserie chicken restaurant that has its roots in street food from around the world. Inspired by Harlem Americana, we look to the birth of hip hop, as well as street culture for aesthetic inspiration. Streetbird is fast, fun, fresh, and familiar. It's where you can pick up a rotisserie bird on your way home from work, have it delivered from our kitchen to yours in minutes, or kick back with friends and family in the restaurant to celebrate a birthday, or even just a Tuesday.
