Foodie Friday | The Park 112 Restaurant in Harlem


When my birthday came around, brunch was a requirement. I didn’t want to go to my old haunts, so I headed to Harlem to try out one of the newest restaurants on Harlem’s Restaurant RowThe Park 112. The newbie eatery is owned by former Sean Combs Enterprises/Bad Boy Entertainment President, Lewis Tucker, and located at 2080 Frederick Douglass Blvd. Review - The Park 112 Restaurant  in Harlem_Brunch Parfait

When you walk into The Park 112, you are greeted by really sweet and accommodating hostesses. The interior design of The Park 112 is very contemporary-chic, but the wooden decor makes it inviting. There’s also a large section in the middle of the restaurant that is perfect for large parties. We didn’t have reservations, but we were seated immediately. Considering it was Sunday afternoon and unseasonably warm, we were in luck. Before we had a chance to place our appetizers order, our first round of mimosas was on the table. I rarely ever order appetizers, but I was FAMISHED. I chose the parfait and my friend opted for the fried oysters that she had been raving about all weekend. The pineapple & berries parfait was well presented and a welcomed departure from my go-to–the all berry parfait. Review - The Park 112 Restaurant  in Harlem_Brunch Fried Oysters

Now that our stomachs were lightly coated, it was time to order our main dishes. I can be so indecesive when it comes to ordering at a restaurant I’m not familiar with, but I was able to quickly whittle my options down to the French Toast (with a caramel bourbon drizzle) and Lobster Scramble. Ah, but then I spotted The Park 112’s shrimp and grits variation on the menu and went for the Jerk Prawns with Cheese Grits. Can I just tell y’all something? The Jerk Prawns & Cheese Grits were grrreat. Seriously, my only issues with The Park 112 are: 1.) I need more grits and 2.) the cheese grits are not available as a side!!! (Hopefully that will change!) The cheese grits were as creamy as creamy can get and the jerk had a real kick. (Of course jerk should have a kick, but I find that some restaurants dilute the spiciness. That wasn’t the case here.)

I’m pretty sure we stayed at The Park 112 for 2-3 hours. If the drinks keep appearing, uh why are we leaving? Talk about a leisurely brunch! The staff was very attentive and I appreciated the breadth of the brunch menu. I hear there’s also a sommelier on hand to guide your wine selections. Whether it’s for Sunday brunch, a dinner date or afterwork drinks, The Park 112 will be seeing me again!
