AMY RUTH'S IN HARLEM

If you didn't grow up in the south and if you don't have a southern grandmother to cook for you, then visit Amy Ruth's in Harlem! Opened in 1998, I had heard this place was the best to visit in New York City for Soul Food and Chicken and Waffles. So, I had to go there for myself and see if it lived up to all of the hype...and it so did! I ordered the Rev. Al Sharpton (chicken and waffles that you can order fried or smothered in gravy). I have to tell you, this was some of the best fried chicken I had ever eaten, so crispy and not too greasy at all. As for the waffle (I am not that much of a waffle person to begin with), this waffle was hands-down THE BEST ONE I EVER ATE! No exaggeration!I also tried their macaroni and cheese, candied yams, and collard greens on the side, which were good, but nothing great. Next time I want to try the "Stan Hoffman & Lu Willard" (BBQ spare ribs). You can also find things like fried catfish, chicken and dumplings, and ham hocks on the menu here. I was too full for dessert, but I know I will be back there again for sure!AMY RUTH'S
