Venue Info

If there are two things that define Harlem, they're soulful food and even more soulful jazz -- and Minton's has both. An innovative fusion of Afro-Asian-American flavors are served in this supper club paying tribute to the 1940s jazz landmark Minton's Playhouse, where bebop is said to have been born. Gestures are made to the neighborhood's musical history in regular live sets from local jazz groups and black-and-white portraits of legends like Billie Holiday. The kitchen got overhauled when Chef J. J. Johnson, formerly of sister venue The Cecil, moved in, meaning you can expect the lauded oxtail dumplings and low-country gumbo bowls with Carolina rice that made him famous. The atmosphere is just as funky as the food, featuring a mural of a jazz session that survived the fire that felled the original space. If the music or eats don't get you loose, we're betting that a Good Ole Armstrong (aged dark rum, lime, pineapple, basil) will.
