I ate there a few years ago.  It was an expensive cab ride from mid town.  The food was OK but I personally did not find it exciting.  I guess being from Knoxville, TN where most of us grew up on what is "soul food", we tend to judge that type of cuisine a bit more harsher??
 
A very nice restaurant though and seems to have been very popular.

A friend of mine just sent me a box of 9 packets of Sylvia's Crispy Fried Chicken Mix (from Amazon) as a Christmas present.

Has anyone tried it?  Or has anyone had the fried chicken at the eponymous restaurant in Harlem?

Loved the Fried chicken mix! I am so bad at making fried chicken, and this was very acceptable!

Good to know!  I'm very proud of my own pan-fried chicken recipe, but I'm eager to try this as a coating for oven-"fried" chicken.  Thanks!

Rumaki, I was there with friends in July and I loved it.  The chicken & waffles were really good as was the rest of our food.  It was the last stop of the day for us in the Trip Report below.

I just got a bunch of her sauces in. The Dippin Sauce is fantastic, haven't tried the 3 hot sauces yet!

Sylvia, through her wonderful cooking and entrepreneurial gifts, was truly one of the leaders of the "Second Remaissance" of Harlem.
 
Thank you, Sylvia.  Rest in our Lord's Peace.
