Minton’s Harlem and The Cecil Restaurants Announce Holiday Events

Minton’s Harlem


Dine on Chef Alexander Smalls & Chef de Cuisine Banks White’s delectable Southern Revival cuisine paired beautifully with a glass of Veuve Clicquot while swinging and swaying to the intoxicating tones of award-winning jazz artist, Vinnie Knight and the Minton’s house band in the very same hallowed hall that the likes of Dizzy Gillespie and Thelonious Monk conspired to create Bebop so many years ago.

Imagine the glorious nights had here since the ’30s and create lasting memories of your own to welcome 2014 with your most special friends and loved ones.

Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve Minton’s will host two seatings, at 7pm and 10pm.

Three and four course prix fixe menus uniquely inspired by the flavors of the South Carolina Low Country will tickle your tastebuds for $90 and $150 per person.

Miss Vinnie Knight will perform with the Minton’s House Band for both seatings on New Year’s Eve. Have a peek at our holiday menus.
