Chocolat, a night out in Harlem.

One weekend,  I had a moment to myself and I made the most of it.  I heard of a spot in Harlem and made my way there.  Thankfully there was no wait, I like to make reservations but this was on a whim.  I wasn’t moved by the appetizers.  They were mostly seafood and I wasn’t in that mood.  I ordered a bottle of wine.  I ended up with Chardonnay, they didn’t have a bottle of what I originally wanted.  I ordered the Emily’s Sweet Fried Chicken. It was served with watermelon salad,  corn on the cob and this honey pepper sauce.  The chicken was hot, juicy and crispy. That sauce was amazing. Peppery and slightly sweet, a perfect mix.  The mint with watermelon salad made it really refreshing. The corn was okay, I would have enjoyed it more if it was warmer.  I did not enjoy the service from my waiter.  He didn’t seem knowledgeable,  he wasn’t informative, luckily the front house staff was great.  And more importantly the food was fantastic. Would definitely go back, they have a lounge across the street.  Might try that for a different experience.

  1. Wonderful website you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any community forums
    that cover the same topics discussed in this
    article? I’d really like to be a part of group where I can get feed-back from
    other experienced individuals that share the
    same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let
    me know. Appreciate it!

    1. Thank you! I actually don’t, that’s part of the reason I started this blog. There are lots of food forums on cooking and recipes. I haven’t found any on restaurants. There are a few other websites, Timeout NY and Brooklyn Exposed. Good luck on your search, hope you continue to read and please spread the word.
