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.
