Belle Harlem is the latest addition to the growing list of hot spots in New York City. Chef Darryl Burnette and his lovely wife Melissa are offering something special.
Belle will be the first chef’s table in Harlem, accepting reservations only for dinner and walk-ins for brunch. Patrons can make reservations at the Belle Harlem website and via OpenTable.
The restaurant offers 12 intimate seats around our communal table. The space affords diners a unique opportunity to have a direct relationship with the chef in an upscale setting. The menu will change regularly, providing customers a new dining experience. Chef Darryl says, “We wanted our guests to feel as though they were having dinner in our kitchen. We’re focusing on local ingredients, small unique purveyors, and boutique wines. We also think that hospitality can suffer in large establishments. My most memorable meals have been in our kitchen with great friends, great food, and great wine. So we wanted to recreate that environment.”
Chef Burnette is a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America and has trained under such renowned chefs as Charlie Palmer, Jean Georges Vongerichten, and Andy D' Amico. He was previously the Chef at 24 Prince, and Executive Chef at Bergdorf Goodman's BG restaurant.
