good bloody marys- harlem
an unexpectedly great bloody mary from kitchenette in harlem. its so pungent it could almost be used as a condiment! so flavorful it's best to sip not guzzle (even for me!) tart salty spicy sweet. lemon and/or lime juice, salt, tabasco, horseradish and, i think, some sugar or simple syrup. a really good one!
kitchenette also makes really pretty cookies and cakes and serves ample plates of homey comfort food that rely heavily on inexpensive starchy ingredients like potatoes, breads and grits. a down town import, not a harlem home grown place like the old m & g soul food. very, very charmingly decorated- all vintage cream, pink and jadite green- old white weathered boards and green handled or enamel kitchen ware.
