I love Mexican and happy hour, this gives me the best of both worlds. I usually frequent the two Harlem locations, I decided to try the rooftop. With both Harlem spots, the vibe is chill, cold drinks and fast service. I order guacamole, elote, tacos and wings. I usually get flavored margaritas too. I like the variety of tacos better in Harlem. The view and service at the rooftop was the best. I liked the food and drink varieties better at the rooftop. I had a chipotle corn guacamole, chicken tacos(it was Taco Tuesday)and a frose drink in addition to my margaritas. I would go back to the rooftop and order my drinks and food the first shot.
So I have previous dinner post about this place. The food is still good, service still shaky. For some reason they served a large party ahead of our party of two. He did tell us about the wait, but a drink refill or an appetizer would’ve been a nice gesture. We ordered a pitcher of white sangria, cheddar and mozzarella omelet and a turkey burger. They do have unlimited mimosas and bellinis as an option. The pitcher was a better choice for us. The food was good, the burger was seasoned well. I would go back and jave something sweet, like pancakes or waffles. Maybe third times a charm with the service.
Blvd Bistro Brunch
I had dinner here before (see prior post), it was excellent. I was excited to go for brunch. My friend ordered steak and eggs with a side of cheese grits, I ordered the herb omelet with a side of turkey bacon. For drinks we had mimosas and bellinis. The potatoes and grits were room temperature, that was a little disappointing. The food itself was excellent, for sauces they served an African hot pepper sauce, jam and cane sugar butter, fantastic. For dessert we ordered pancakes. The were wonderful, pipping hot, they were served with melted butter and warm syrup. I actually used the cane sugar butter instead, my gosh it was the perfect end to the meal. All in all, this place serves delicious food.
Now that I work in East Harlem, I find myself hanging out here after work more. By the time I get back to Brooklyn sadly most happy hours are over. I follow a Harlem based IG page, they posted a brunch picture from this place. I decided to go after work for happy hour and dinner. I absolutely made the right choice. While I waited for my date, they brought me a warm biscuit with maple butter. I ordered a happy hour drink of course. I skipped an appetizer, I had turkey meatloaf, with garlic mash and string beans. Meatloaf was moist, mash was just right and beans still had a slight crisp to them. I went home with just a piece of meatloaf. The meal was priced right, I would definitely like to go back for brunch.
