Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: Harlem Tavern: A Quick Bite At The Tavern
Location: West 116th Street and Frederick Douglas Blvd
On an afternoon where we felt like a beer and a quick bite we stopped by the popular spot while it wasn’t crowded.
Sitting outside with this nice an unseasonably warm weather made all the sense in the world. And while In the festive mood of the season instead of having an ordinary beer, we went with the Pumpkin & Ginger Spiced Blue Moon on tap. This beer tastes really good!
For an appetizer oysters were in order.
In my opinion eating oysters with fresh lemon juice, a little salt, a little black pepper, & some tobasco sauce or hot sauce is the way to go.
Their flatbread pizza with steak and pepperoncinis. This was really good although I didn’t sample it personally. I mean how could it not taste really good, there’s steak and cheese and bread and pepperoncinis!
When I looked over the menu I settled on what else? Harlem Taverns Create your own Mac N Cheese. I wanted to think outside the box on this one. So looking at the list of options for creating one’s own Mac, N Cheese, I decided for spicy and meaty taste and texture. Jalapeños for the spice/heat and mushrooms for that meat like texture. This is definitely my new favorite Mac N Cheese variation. There was perfect melding of flavor and heat with not only the heat from the jalapeños but the mac n cheese itself. The mushrooms gave the mac n cheese another layer of depth that made my mouth sing and to be honest burn a little. ;).
Flatbread gets 5 out of 5 dinner plates
Create your own Mac N Cheese also gets a perfect 5 out of 5 dinner plates
Blue Moon Seasonal Beer gets 5 out of 5 Pint Glasses
Harlem Tavern is a great spot in West Harlem to stop in for a excellent bite to eat or for drinks. Price wise it’s worth the price of admission. Expect to spend $$$ Till next time this has been THEJNSREPORT’S: A Quick Bite At The Tavern
