Like so many great food ideas hatched during the pandemic, this one just couldn’t wait. Chef Melvin Boots opened his Southern biscuit spot last November and is currently operating a daytime pop-up out of the cocktail bar 67 Orange Street. While he looks for a permanent home, Boots is scratching a big Harlem itch: a casual place to get perfectly executed biscuit sandwiches (to stay or go) that can hold up to any combination of eggs and protein - the classic bacon, egg, and cheddar cheese, a.k.a the Bodega, is a good starting point. If it’s just biscuits you want, make sure you try the black truffle flavor, which is especially delicious with a little extra butter.

Food Rundown


The naturally crooked piece of crispy fried chicken that comes with this sandwich doesn’t quite fit the biscuit, making you wonder if everything will hold up. But hold up it does. The sweet buttermilk biscuit is equal parts solid and flaky, and the chili garlic honey sauce, pickles, and onion add welcome depth.


The chive cheddar biscuit is great on its own—perfectly buttery and flaky, enlivened with bits of chives and cheddar. But add warm eggs, bacon, and cheese, and you’ve got a solid reason to plan your Sunday around this meal.
