i'm liking our new local restaurant maison harlem more and more! it's convivial and unpretentious for a place that's already attracting celebrities. a few weeks ago we stopped by for a drink and whoopi goldberg was waking in just ahead of us. the food is good. french bistro. moroccan merguez sausage included as a fitting harlem nod to africa. i love it that one can hang out at the bar and drink coffee in the afternoon, diner style. you can get your own refill from a pot by the door, though the bartender is perfectly happy to walk around the bar and get it for you. you don't have to order whole plates- they'll just make you a couple of eggs if you you want- no problem. if you get a glass of wine they casually fill it up to the top- no oenophile affect here. very relaxed marriage of chic foodie elegance and casual neighborhood hangout. more pics here.
evolution now and five mile road are family owned businesses. we design and make screen printed clothing and household linens.
