The long wait is over and Clove on Amsterdam by 139th Street has finally open as of last Thursday.  It took more than a couple of years to happen but the family business has now already debuted outdoor dining along with lunch and dinner service at night.  A lunch buffet special at $9.95 from 11:00AM-3:00PM during the week has now become an instant big hit with local students and staff at City College across the street which was quite apparent when we visited this afternoon.

We tried out the samosas, chicken tiki masala along and basmati rice on our first visit and Indian ice tea was also included which is a pretty good deal.  Water is also served up in a nice copper cup and everything was on point for a quick bite in the afternoon.  Dinner service at night or weekends does not include the buffet which is a nice change also for those who want something a little less casual.  Clove is the type of place one can dress up or dress down to arrive but is not too stuffy so this gets some major points and probably multiple visits during week.

A wide delivery range from Riverside Drive to Lenox from 155th to 110th Street also is a plus for those who rather dine at home.  More details can be found on Yelp: LINK


  1. Now if we only can get some more places like this and others around the Jumel Terrace Historic District that would be a good thing
