Here are a couple of new food spots in Harlem from our friends at NY Eatery:
1) A new restaurant called Harlem Bar-B-Que is now open at 547 Lenox Avenue. This massive complex, with a pair of large dining rooms lined with red-upholstered booths, supposedly specializes in barbecue. What that boils down to is baby back ribs thickly slathered with a mahogany sauce and fried chicken, mainly drumsticks and wings, plus frozen cocktails in huge schooners. In other words, it’s pretty much a Dallas BBQ clone.”
Harlem Bar-B-Que, 547 Lenox Ave., 917-262-0990, www.harlembarbq.com/
2) The name of Tuscan Kitchen — eagerly awaited by the neighborhood, especially the swells along nearby Strivers Row — is something of a sham, because there’s nothing Tuscan about it. Rather, it’s a combination pastry shop and panini store, with a steam table displaying a few baked pastas. The pastries include Napoleons, Oreo Cake, and cannoli, and the hot sandwiches, which cost between $8 and $9, include chicken parm panini and an East Harlem panini with roast beef, turkey, provolone, pickles, and honey mustard.”
