Harlem Underground (745 Queen West, at Tecumseth), an Afro-American and Caribbean restaurant that doubled as one of the city's rare Black-owned music and performance venues, will be closing the doors to its last location on Queen West this fall after 10 years.

 

“Over the last decade Harlem Underground has been an epicentre of Black food and culture within the downtown core. The decision to close ... comes from a personal need to see other creative endeavours grow," founder Carl Cassell wrote in a release.

 

The announcement follows the closure of Harlem's Richmond location in 2017.
