EAT: NICOISE SALAD AT MAISON HARLEM
For a more substantial salad option in the new year, we decided to check out Maison Harlem on the corner of 127th Street and St. Nicholas Avenue. This is probably one of the more substantial plates to be offered up in Harlem and one gets a good portion of seared tuna on top of a bed of greens, fingerling potatoes, egg, green beans, olives, cherry tomatoes along with a bit of anchovy mixed in with the vinaigrette. For $19 an order and just about 320 calories a serving, this uptown option was not only satisfying for those with a large appetite but also very low in calorie. Fresh fish always keeps the number count down and this generous serving will keep one on diet goals without feeling like not much was sacrificed for dinner. Paired with a sensible glass of light wine, one can have a reasonable night out on all levels without the guilt on the waistline or pocket book.
