Inspired by Harlem’s culture and diversity, Marcus moved to the borough eight years ago with the hope of one day owning a restaurant that represented what he loved most about this versatile area. The history of Harlem is as rich as the food now available. Home to great poets, musicians and actors, entertainment and creativity are as alive today on the streets of Harlem as they were when speakeasies still existed.

Chat with Marcus on Food Network’s Facebook page at 3 pm on Friday, February 24. After the chat, tune in at 8 pm ET/PT for the Food Network special, Savoring Harlem.
