New restaurant Harlem Shake wants to make Brooklyn the 'go-to' burger spot
A piece of Harlem is finding a home in Brooklyn with the new vintage burger spot opening in Park Slope called Harlem Shake.
From their jerk chicken burger to their Harlem classic burger, Harlem Shake has set up shop on the corner of Sterling Place and 5th Avenue with plans to put Brooklyn on the map as a 'go-to' burger joint.
"We think that families and residents here will resonate with what we have to offer," co-owner of Harlem Shake Dardra Coaxum says.
The burger spot partnered with local Brooklyn business Island Pops to offer something unique for its new location.
The experience isn't just about the food and drinks either.
"Besides our food, it has to do with a lot of our personality. A lot of our style."
Their 1950s vintage décor transports customers into a new and familiar world.
"We wanted to feel like you've been there before, like your grandmother's been there before while still being relevant to today's world."
The restaurant also encourages customers to join in and show up with their best looks for a feature on their "Wall of Fab."
"Vintage pictures of people and people from the neighborhood with old school hair styles and bobs and froes. So, we'll let you guys know where to submit your pictures for that because we'd love to have you guys be part of it."
Harlem Shake plans to open the week of Sept. 13.
