Restaurateurs Steve Benhamron and Brahms Yaiche (late of Time Supper Club) have shifted Harlow from soft launch mode to open now mode.
For the first time we also have a visual of the space on Place Jacques Cartier, in the old À L'Aventure restaurant. The makeover by architect Philip Hazan serves as a kind of homage to the Art Deco era of the 1930s.
Harlow's menu is heavy on high-end ingredients and comes courtesy chef Jason Bivall, who last worked at the Gault hotel. There are apps to share (foie gras with Calvados and truffles; 16/20 shrimp with bacon and cherry tomato confit), two pastas (ricotta gnocchi with petits pois; squash ravioli); a selection of half a dozen meat and fish dishes; a 'Royal Treatment' section with the likes of Wagyu for four to six people priced at $245 and whole grilled fish; and, finally, four desserts.
Harlow is now open Wednesday to Saturday as of 6 p.m., until late.
