Harlow's is as unique today as when it first opened. The waitstaff is opinionated enough to let you know what to order and what to pass on. Pumpkin cheesecake atop pecan caramel sauce, and the house specialty – Tuoca cheesecake made with ricotta cheese and fresh blueberries – are two great options. With an extensive cigar bar, outdoor seating, and some of the area's top jazz, Harlow's is a great place to spend the evening. Soak up the relaxed ambience, watch the upscale crowd, and sip a brandy or cognac while you listen to music. Performers offer anything from traditional jazz to R&B, salsa, or reggae.

Reservations are recommended.
