HARLEM — If you've ever wanted to try a daring cocktail at 67 Orange Street, now's your chance.

The Harlem speakeasy is one of more than 20 restaurants and retailers participating in the fourth annual Harlem Park to Park's Harlem Restaurant and Retail Week.

From February 15 to the 28th, restaurants will offer prix fixe lunch meals for $20.13 and, to offer a larger portion of their menu, $30.13 prix fixe dinners. Retailers will also offer items at those two prices.

"Harlem Restaurant and Retail Week has grown each year with the increase in the number of businesses in the neighborhood," said Nikoa Evans-Hendricks, executive director of Harlem Park to Park.

Among the restaurants participating are Red Rooster Harlem, Sylvia's, Corner Social, Chocolat, Harlem Food Bar and Ristorante Settepani.

One lunch combo at Corner Social would include Satur Farms green salad with champagne vinaigrette for a starter, mahogany glazed catfish with buttered baby bok choy and a shiitake mushroom rice cake for an entree with sweet potato pie for dessert for $20.13.

"Harlem Restaurant and Retail Week is unique because it features prix fixe special offers from both our restaurant members as well as our retail members unlike Restaurant Week," said Evans-Hendricks.

Retailers include Brownstone Fitness, Franz James Floral Boutique and Harlem Skin Clinic.

"Harlem Park to Park businesses report 10 to 15 percent increases in sales during the promotion which is an important addition to the bottom line during slower months like February," added Evans-Hendricks.
