Came uptown to this spot, my husband found it on open table. What they don't inform you of on open table is that midnight until closing you only get a selection of appetizers and hamburgers for entrees. I had apps ribs (4pcs) this was tasty...More

Be prepared to spend $25-30 a person for brunch. Everything is a la carte. Food is average. In the East Village you can get a full brunch, including a drink, for $15. Wish there was a more affordable brunch option in Harlem.
