Any suggestions (esp. south of 59th St if possible)?
Though it is primarilly populated with Puerto Ricans, Cubans and Jamaiicans, I can only imagine that Spanish Harlem has some good selections. This seems like a good time to pick up The Village Voice and check out their food section and accompanying advertisements.
One odd story was that I had some friends who lived right near the Metro North station in Harlem. Just looking around, I thought that we would find some good eating. They insisted that we go into mid-town. Bad idea, poor food and commercial chips. I think their main concern was that the drinks were good.
Years later, this still sticks in the back of my mind as a missed opportunity.
