Tips from locals
Another Jazz place, more pricey, date place dinner, you'll have nice time. If something more quiet and intimate is what your up for, this is a good place.
Founded in 1938 by the saxophonist Henry Minton (where this establishment's name comes from), Minton's Playhouse became, decades after, the setting for a revolution in jazz music.
A little more formal, this is a great Harlem experience with soul food and jazz.
