The newest entrant to Harlem’s culinary scene is The Good Good, a cocktail bar and bistro created by three long-time friends - Lesly Bernard and sisters, Juliet and Justine Masters - who share a passion for creating memorable NYC venues.

Justine and Juliet Masters are the operators of The Edge Harlem, while Lesly Barnard is the force behind iconic downtown venues like Tillmans and Clementine. At The Good Good, the three have created a unique and inviting space filled with rich warm tones, textures and layers of surprise.

The “bistro” menu is inspired by the trio’s Caribbean heritage and features modern takes on comforting dishes like Spicy Jerk Mushrooms, Curried Carrots and Hot Fatali Honey Fried Chicken. Seafood options include Codfish Fritters, a Coconut Fish Sandwich and Sauteed Shrimp with a pineapple coconut soubise.

The flavors of the Caribbean also make their way into the cocktails, like the Good Good Rum Daiquiri with dark rum, fresh lime juice, demerara syrup; and Rum & Ting with dark rum and Ting sparkling grapefruit soda. The restaurant also features premium spirits, a collection of old world wines and craft beers.

The three friends at The Good Good like to think of the place as an extension of their living room where folks can come and have a good, good time.

The Good Good is located at 1694 Park Ave, New York, NY. For more information, visit
