Our Community

Together we are Stronger

Community is extremely important to us. In Africa when a woman would have a child the whole community would come together to help raise that child. We thrive to pursue that same concept with our establishment.

Engaging with our neighbors that have now become friends and family is a priority for us here at TheCradlenyc.  

We want people to feel at home while enjoying our dishes, we want our dishes to take them back to a time in their childhood when they would gather around with family to share a wonderful time.

β€œYou can only understand the need of a community by talking to the Community”

Creating a space that brings change for the people around us, that influences diversity and explores different cultures was the foundation in building TheCradlenyc.
