☞ EAT: Hurricane Dining in Harlem
Saturday was another night out and Maison Harlem seemed like it would be a good choice since the eatery was not on the main South Harlem strip. We ran into the owners of Harlem Food Bar who apparently could not get a seat at their own establishment on FDB and went over to Masion with a group of friends. The restaurant was full but not packed and all received seating in timely manner.
As mentioned previously, the service and food is impeccable and worth the splurge at the corner bistro on 127th Street. One of the stand out dishes was the carbonara offering which has an egg yoke presented so that the diner can mix it in and thicken the sauce (which is usually done by the chef right before the plate is served). A hanger steak cooked medium rare was À point to perfection and was ordered because the seriously amazing pork chop special ran out for the night.
Service can be rough at many new restaurants but Maison Harlem has never disappointed us on visits and thus we highly recommend this new Central Harlem establishment. Read more about Maison Harlem in our past post: LINK
