Sylvia’s soul food restaurant in Harlem has earned legendary status the way few restaurants in New York have. Serving some of the best southern comfort food in the city since 1962, this Malcolm X Boulevard staple has delighted generations of locals, tourists and A-listers (just look at the scores of photographs of your favorite celebrities plaguing the humble walls of the joint).
Complete with a lunch counter, dining at Sylvia’s is like traveling down south to indulge in all the delicacies people from the North East have sworn off their diets. Free of pretense and full of flavor, soul food classics like fried chicken and waffles, collard greens, and mac & cheese take center stage in this comfort food temple.
