I ate dinner last night at a good Haitian restaurant on
the Upper West Side, on Amsterdam and 57th. I had their
stewed tongue; tongue is about my favorite meat and it
makes me sad to think about how few restaurants serve
it. Anyway this spicy stew was excellent, and was
served with rice and peas, and salad.
I haven't been to a Haitian restaurant before; I've
been to several West Indian restaurants near Brooklyn
College, and I liked La Soleil as well as or better
than any of them.
