disappointing lunch

Susan | Sep 4, 1997 09:01 PM

Since we needed a lunch place near the Schomburg
Library (135th St & Lenox)and Charles doesn't open
until 4 PM, we ended up at Emily's on Fifth and 111th.
Got a 21 rating in Zagat(!?)but was both overpriced
($8.95 for a mighty skimpy serving of bland ribs--on a
small plate so it wouldn't look so tiny, I
guess--accompanied by grits and a piece of cornbread)
and devoid of atmosphere. Service was fine--diners at
only one other table. (The one "find" I got out of
Zagat's is Mama's Food Shop in the East Village, so I
was hoping to strike it lucky again.)
