The cold weather is back again and the idea of eating or drinking by a warm fireplace might sound quite right but apparently only one place in Harlem has one. Actually, Harlem Public in Hamilton Heights at Broadway and 149th Street has a wood stove at corner nestled between a couple of old church pews from Mt. Moriah.
This pub is one of our favorites uptown and the bar menu is one of the best in Harlem but maybe someone can open a charming restaurant with a traditional marble mantle version? Nevertheless, nothing beats having cozy spot just around the corner when the temperature plummets seeing that one is less inclined to venture out far at night in this type of weather.
