We started our Saturday at Amy Ruth's up in Harlem.
The menu boasted comfort, cuisine, courtesy, and culture.
And Amy Ruth's lived up to this.
Complimentary cornbread, peach juice ($4.00), lemonade ($4.00).
Amy Ruth's names all of its entrees after notable African-Americans, including Barack Obama, Al Roker, and Al Sharpton.
The Nate Robinson -- BBQ spare ribs + two sides ($14.25).
Tender, smoky, and flavorful. Mac 'n' cheese and buttered corn were fab.
The Ludacris -- four fried chicken wings + two sides ($12.25).
Golden fried crunchy yumminess. Candied yams and cheesy grits rocked.
Worth the trip to Harlem. Good food. Good service. Good prices.
While we were in the neighborhood, we visited Serena and Blair's Ivy League stomping grounds. Yes, that was another Gossip Girl reference.
After taking photos of one of the many law schools that rejected me, we headed back down to tourist central.
If you watch Project Runway, you may recognize this billboard featuring contestant Gretchen's winning navy jumpsuit early this season.
I embrace being a tourist. It means I can say I adore Times Square.
annnd you're back! fist pump. :)ReplyDelete
Looks so good! Next time you're in NYC and on the hunt for soul food try Mama's Food Shop on E. 3rd. Not as fancy but still great.ReplyDelete
How am I the only one who noticed how well endowed Elmo looks in that picture???ReplyDelete
your pix look amazing btw, what camera is that?
Lauren: Don't call it a comeback. I've been here for years!ReplyDelete
Swank: I hope next time I get to see you!
Julie Q: My usual cam -- Nikon D40. Food shots are always 35mm f/1.8. Others are 18-200mm.
Love creatively named dishes. It would be fun ordering at this place! And eating there, too. Mmm!ReplyDelete
#1 I love fried chicken. A lot.ReplyDelete
#2 Yay for my soon to be alma mater Columbia!
#3 I love the Sesame Street characters.
#4 You love Times Square? I never would have thought. I hated it because there were too many people that I couldn't get anywhere.
I could eat Ludacris all day long...ReplyDelete
The Naked Cowboy looks good for 40.
The guys in that wedding party look like they are about 15-17 years old.ReplyDelete
Shoe: I love the sights and sounds and colors and lights!ReplyDelete
FGD: I'm pretty sure that was a girl celebrating a quincenera and the male members of her court.
Cookie Monster and Elmo are lookin' pretty brokedown.ReplyDelete
And I stopped liking the naked cowboy after I saw him on the Today show on Election Day saying he was voting for McCain.
That food looks simple but scrumptious! And I love the addition of other NYC pictures :) I heart that city.ReplyDelete
great pictures! I have a d40 too, maybe I should take some pics on vacay. Not. lolz.ReplyDelete
Wow elmo and cookie monster look scary in real life like humans wearing ill fitting fur suits. As for those law schools rejecting you- that never happened. They lost your app in the mail- same shit happened to me. Yale, eat ur heart out heheReplyDelete
Wedding procession in the middle of Times Square? That's quite a sight :pReplyDelete
I'm still bitter that I've never been to NY. Ever.ReplyDelete
Yes, you read that right.
