Where do chefs and restaurateurs go and, more importantly, where do they love to eat on their days off? In Resy Regulars, we ask Resy chefs and restaurant owners to tell us where they’re regulars on a typical day off from the restaurant.
Juliet and Justine Masters opened the doors to The Edge Harlem in 2014, and it’s a true family affair. There’s the all-day brunch menu — with the likes of jerk chicken Caesar salad and coconut-battered fried fish — concocted by Juliet, the chef, as an homage to her Jamaican and British grandmothers. There’s the sorrel that their father brews and drops off every Tuesday and Friday. Justine, the younger sister by 18 months and a former music manager, curates the live music lineup on Wednesdays.
For both sisters, that sense of family extends to the larger community of fellow Jamaican and Black restaurateurs in Harlem, where they’ve lived since high school after a childhood spent mostly in Kingston, Jamaica.
Naturally, a day off from The Edge Harlem is still very much about family for both Juliet and Justine. Here’s a look at all the places where they consider themselves regulars.
