The Harrison
By Emily Saladino
Owner Jimmy Bradley opened this friendly neighborhood joint back in 2001—a lifetime ago in Manhattan restaurant years. Enduring success speaks for itself, but instead of resting on its laurels, the Harrison brought Chef Ari Bokovza on board in January of 2013, enhancing the seasonal menu with a Mediterranean sensibility while spicing things up with the occasional Middle Eastern influence, a nod to the chef’s Tunisian grandmother.

“Everyone likes anchovies,” Bokovza says of The Harrison’s popular radish-and-bagna-cauda appetizer. “They just don’t think they like anchovies.” The man has a point. Both the radishes and the lamb kefteh, made with delicately spiced meat, make for highly shareable appetizers or addictive bar snacks. The day-boat scallops, topped with lemony buerre blanc, make a regular appearance on many a white-linen covered tables here, as does the grilled octopus. The latter is served with house-made harissa and sweet potato falafel, and is substantial enough to serve as a light main. But then you’d miss the creative entrées, like fresh porgy and mussels simmered in a rich, buttery broth, or the heartbreakingly tender lamb neck osso bucco. Another crowd-pleaser is skillet-roasted chicken, which is elevated by umami-rich anchovies. Good taste, as they say, is timeless.
