The city was bustling today with events across town, but the real party was up in Harlem for the 3rd annual Harlem EatUp! Festival! Citi card and ticket holders started wining and dining at The Stroll, an all you can eat extravaganza featuring the best of Harlem's chefs and Bordeaux wines, while the general public enjoyed The Marketplace, a pay-as-you-go experience.


Along with shrimp and grits from BLVD Bistro, Ossobuco from Settpani, and cocktails from Hendrick's Gin, festival goers enjoyed cooking and cocktail demos from Marcus Samuelsson, Roger Mooking, and Karl Franz Williams - learning some of the tips and tricks from the kitchens.


Dancing ensued while the marching band made their way through the festival grounds as Samuelsson rode around on a Citi Bike shaking hands and taking photos with friends and guests. Throughout the afternoon, broadcast news host Tamron Hall was spotted snapped photos with fans while enjoying dishes from Harlem's talented chefs.

This highly anticipated weekend festival represents the spirit of Harlem while paying homage to its roots.  Founded by award-winning chef and cookbook author Marcus Samuelsson and Herb Karlitz, President of the event marketing firm, Karlitz & Company, Harlem EatUp! is committed to highlighting the distinct culinary experiences, music, history, culture and art of Harlem.  A variety of events, both free and ticketed, were held throughout the weekend.
