Famed Harlem Celeb Chef JJ Johnson will open his new restaurant, Field Trip, in Harlem later this Fall, focusing on a “fast-casual grain concept’ with patrons choosing their own rice or barley bowls.
Knowing Harlem the way Chef JJ does ~ living in Harlem and coming from the popular The Cecil and Minton’s, Chef proclaimed that Field Trip will be “an affordable restaurant that people in the neighborhood can eat at every day.” “……it’s a community-based restaurant that’s being built for the community.”
As sole owner, Chef JJ has the lease inked, menu established, and Field Trip is set to open in November, at 109 Lenox Avenue, between 115th-116th Street, occupying 1,125 square feet on the ground floor with an additional 800 square feet on the second level. It can’t be more convenient to transportation, located at the #2/3 subway station on Lenox Avenue at 116th Street, and bus stops from every direction.
We can’t end this post without a note about how many notable Harlem restaurants are owned & operated by renowned chef’s that also live in Harlem.
