Safari Brings Somali Cuisine to Harlem | NY Times

Safari Brings Somali Cuisine to Harlem | NY Times

By Ligaya Mishan On the menu, it is called the Federation Combo: to one side, basmati rice in sunrise shades of orange and gold, with dark tears of stewed raisins on top; to the other, linguine as creamy as Alfredo. In Somalia, the noodles and grains would be more than neighbors, mixed happily together. But […]

Uptown Fashion Week: How One Woman Created A Local Global Movement | Forbes

The High Bridge, a Scenic and Serene Cousin of the High Line | NY Times

By WILLIAM GRIMES FOR as long as New York has been New York, its inhabitants have looked for ways to escape the city’s frenzy. They have sought out breathable air, fresh vistas or a simple patch of greenery. In 1880, Harper’s Weekly offered its readers a helpful tip. “Nothing can be pleasanter, for those who […]

At the Handpulled Noodle, Mom Knows Best | NY Times

By LIGAYA MISHAN Ding ding noodles do not look like noodles. A better description may be nubs, knots, lumps: on a spectrum with spaetzle and frascatelli, but rougher, more unpredictable in shape and fantastically chewy. They come from Xinjiang, in China’s far northwest, as does Andrew Ding (the name is a coincidence), who opened the […]

‘Voodoo,’ an Opera from the Harlem Renaissance, Gets Its First Revival  | Wall Street Journal

By Andy Beta Last Friday, at the Convent Avenue Baptist Church in Harlem, a soaring soprano voice pierced the quietude, strong enough to be heard inside and outside the building. In a small rehearsal space upstairs from the main sanctuary, eight singers, a pianist and Dr. Gregory Hopkins, conductor and artistic director for Harlem Opera […]
