Chocolat is a big restaurant in Harlem where you can listen to hip-hop and watch sports on TV while you eat anything from red velvet pancakes to ribs or fried chicken. The dinner menu is pretty huge (with dedicated sections for both salad and mac and cheese), and they have a $20 bottomless-mimosa option during brunch. Most of the entrees are in the $30 range, so a meal here can get a little pricey. But if you need a fun group spot where you can eat a burger or a good plate of shrimp and grits, Chocolat works pretty well.
