Darryl Burnette brings hospitality—and great food—to New York City’s Harlem

This is the latest installment of The Pursuit, a series in which small business owners share insights on how they build their enterprises—and follow their dreams.

Like many chefs, Darryl Burnette has long dreamed of owning a restaurant. He hadn’t anticipated that it would be quite so small as Belle Harlem, the 275-square-foot sliver that he and his wife, Melissa, opened in October 2016.

Burnette, 45, has worked in large New York City kitchens like Bergdorf Goodman’s BG Restaurant and Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Spice Market, which served some 600 people a night in a vast multi-story space. At Belle Harlem, Burnette has only 12 seats, with the kitchen directly in front of guests, giving a terrifically intimate view of how food is prepared.

Late last year, celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson announced that he would be opening a new restaurant in Newark, and some new details have emerged as to what exactly might be in the works with the project.

Samuelsson, a Sweden-born James Beard winner who has published several cookbooks and appeared on programs like Bravo’s Top Chef and Food Network’s Chopped, is partnering with Ron Moelis of L+M Development for the Newark venture. The two became business partners at Harlem’s acclaimed eatery Red Rooster back in 2013 and will be opening their Brick City restaurant in 2,250-square-feet of space in the Hahne & Co. building.

It’s been a busy time for Samuelsson and his restaurants, as he just opened a London outpost of Red Rooster back in May and signed on last month to open another unnamed restaurant in a soon-to-open luxury building in Brooklyn called The Greenpoint. As far as the Newark spot, Eater reports that Samuelsson hopes to open the restaurant’s doors later this year.
