Harlem

$$$$Perfect For:Literally EveryoneLunchSerious Take-Out Operation

Included In

Harlem is a mecca for fish fry lovers, and this spot right off 145th Street is arguably the most famous - the name doesn’t lie. Run by the same family for almost 50 years, it’s a takeout place where the whole process runs like a machine oiled by time. Step down into the narrow space to order some expertly battered and fried seafood, including fish, shrimp, and clams. Try the whiting, served on its own in a small paper basket, or as part of a sliced-bread sandwich. Get a side of fries if you want, but definitely say yes to the sauces, hot and tartar, that come on the side. Then pay and wait outside for your number to be called. And don’t wait for your neatly packaged feast to cool - carry it to Jackie Robinson Park, just across the way.
