The warm smile that greets you at the door of Jacob Restaurant just might belong to the owner himself, Rachid Niang. Most days, Rachid is the first one in and the last one out, of Harlem’s newest, family-friendly soul food and salad bar.
Jacob Restaurant, is the first Black owned and family operated, soul food and salad bar buffet, possessing a huge selection of 42 fresh Southern, Caribbean, and Continental cuisines, all prepared without Trans fats. Since our first year, Jacob recognizably became one of New York’s most affordable, reputable caterers, routinely preparing and delivering foods for organizations, churches, associations, clubs and residents throughout New York City’s five boroughs.
Southern favorites include: crispy fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, collard greens, candied yams, potato salad, home-made peach cobbler, corn bread and whole roasted turkey. Jerk chicken, oxtails, curry goat, peas and rice, among Caribbean delights. Continental dishes include: Sesame Asian noodles with vegetables, beef, chicken or shrimp, baked lasagna and baked ziti. Avocado, shrimp, macaroni, asparagus, Greek, Caesar, mushroom and assorted fruit salads, are also available, among many.
The first Jacob, 373 Lenox Avenue location opened May 15, 2009, as a seven day establishment, from 10.00 am to 10:00 pm.
The rapid success of this eatery resulted in the Niang’s second Jacob Restaurant Soul Food and Salad Bar at 2695 Frederick Douglass Boulevard location that opened June 25, 2010, also serving seven days from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm. Three weeks prior a 2010 Juneteenth Day, fundraiser was held for Rev. Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition.
