i've just moved uptown to 153rd street, and have been hunting restaurants in the area.
have been to cafe largo on broadway and 138, which is ok to good. their weekend brunches are promising with excellent rice and beans and chicken and waffles.
charles southern on frederick douglass was great for takeout, but the dine-in seems to be always closed.
the sugar hill bistro on 145 had amazing jazz and the appetizers i sampled were not terribly inspired but good.
does anyone have suggestions for anything other than the long haul "downtown" to the columbia area?
