Launched in November 2009, What's Eating Harlem (WEH) is a web site dedicated to one of the most famous communities in New York: Harlem USA.  And now, with Harlem undergoing a new renaissance—one that's bringing growth, expansion, and re-igniting the community with new businesses and cultural opportunities—WEH is a web site that brings everything Harlem right   to your fingertips.

New restaurants, clubs, shops and cafes are opening all over Harlem, and WEH keeps track of it all. What's Eating Harlem provides information on the latest openings and happenings, and offers WEH Members special insider deals—from the Harlem River to the Hudson.

WEH is about more than just eating. It's about jazz. It's about museums. And when it comes to food, cocktails, and the hottest spots uptown, What's Eating Harlem is a web surfer's dream site.

WEH also acts as a true destination by offering interactive opportunities and incentives. WEH Club Members can connect with others to exchange reviews, update each other on the latest news, even meet and experience the newest  sites and sounds of Harlem together. Members will get exclusive offers from merchants, museums, theaters, restaurants and more.
