Miss Mamie's Spoon Bread Too

 5 star(s)  (01/16/2009)
“For my first visit to New York and Harlem, I wanted a true soul food dining experience. Miss Mamies was that. We had the good fortune to sit with a couple who ate there every Sunday and had recommended the fried chicken. With both of us loving comfort food my girlfriend and I chose it with sides of ... ”

Amy Ruth's

“I've eaten at this restaurant on many occasions and they have always been very pleasant experiences. The food is not overpriced and the servers are pleasant. Most important everything is delicious.”

Acme Bar & Grill

 5 star(s)  (07/29/2008)
“I absolutely love this place for many reasons. 1st of all I have been living in N.Y all my life and this place is by far the best value. During happy hour ALL appetizers are 1/2 price including oysters and shrimp. Plus on Tuesday's they have $2 specials on some beers. I also love Abita beers and the... ”

Acme Bar & Grill

“Waste of money. I lived in New Orleans for nine years, so I believe I have a good sense of southern cooking. I can say that Acme is a poor rendition of southern food. The food was bland, and the restaurant was pretty dirty. I couldn't even finish my meal. It's pretty much a trap for unwitting NYU ... ”

Miss Mamie's Spoon Bread Too

“I have lived near Spoon Bread for over 10 yrs. From time to time I have have dinner there, mostly because it is convenient. The service is always average, the food nothing special and the prices are a bit high. Last Thanksgiving, with family visiting, I made advanced reservation for my group o... ”

“BARBECUE, this is the one word to describe the smoky, tangy, saucy utterances that issue from MoBay Uptown's kitchen. I had gone many times before, for the whole snapper rundown, the crab cakes and the fabulous vegetarian offerings, but once I tasted the beef ribs,it's hard for me to go there and h... ”

“This is the best barbecue in Manhattan. You can never get in on weekends. Try Monday through Thursday. Still might be a wait, but the mood is magical and gorgeous looking inhabitants at the bar are very friendly. Have a Harlem Mojito and kick back. The beef ribs are gargantuan, smokey and tasty... ”

Sylvia's Restaurant

 5 star(s)  (02/27/2001)
“I visited the Restaurant and was very pleased with everything that I saw. The Food was divine. The staff too kind. I was served fast and was taken care of very well. I came from New Jersey to stay with my sister for week. I was in NY for 7 days and we at Sylvias 6 times. The day I left we ate ... ”
