Dinner and Drinks at Cove Lounge
Located on Lenox, this Caribbean-Soul lounge has been one of the popular choices on this historical avenue which is known as "Harlem's Heartbeat." With a small intimate outdoor seating area and sleek and sexy bar up front, the Cove has you covered for any occasion. If you head to the back, they have a lounge that is perfect for a girls night out and even a downstairs area that is always rocking!
Their dinner menu includes items such as Jerk Skirt Steak, Fried Chicken & Red Velvet Waffles, Crab Cakes, and Lobster Mac & Cheese. All the food choices I made were pretty solid the Fried Chicken and Red Velvet Waffles was the star of the evening. The chicken is was seasoned to perfection, and their award-winning Red Waffles was so soft. The strawberry butter is homemade and a great addition to the entree and so good I barely touched the syrup it came with. Cove also serves brunch that is available on the weekend and includes 2-hour unlimited drinks for only $35 per entree. I got to take a peek at their brunch menu, and it consists of the Cove Omelet, Shrimp & Grits, Cove Brunch Burger, and those tasty Red Velvet Waffles I mentioned earlier.
The Cove recently introduced a couple of new rum-based drinks to their cocktail program, and I felt it was my duty to sample them all for you guys. The Sweet Ting Mojito was one of my favorites and featured a subtle hint of coconut that compliments the rum and muddled strawberries. The Cove Rum Punch is not part of their new rum line but worth mentioning since it is made with Wray & Nephew.
I highly encourage you trying and supporting this black-owned business in Harlem that is also a favorite among Harlemites.
