Looking for brunch recommendations in South Harlem.
Just moved to Frederick Douglass Blvd and loving the stretch from Central Park up to 125. Have eaten at Bier International twice (great prices, lively atmosphere, nice beer selection, wonderful fish tacos and solid brats and kraut), Zoma (our first Ethiopian experience, which was a good one), Lido (delicious Italian - tried both pasta and lamb - better than we expected) and we've grabbed takeout from Melba's twice (tasty, no frills comfort food but nothing life-altering).
But we've only done dinners so far and looking for brunch spot to take some visitors. Any positive experiences from places in the area?
- 5 and Diamond (but other posts have warned of a decline since a change in management/chef)
- Melba's again
- Patisserie des Ambadasses
- or a walk to Lenox to Chez Lucienne
Any advice much appreciated!
