Harry’s Fine Foods is a small neighborhood spot on a residential stretch of Bellevue Ave., and it’s kind of like a cross between a corner market and your aunt’s fancy parlor room where you weren’t allowed to touch anything. (There aren’t so many rules here.) Though the menu is short, there’s a good range of dishes - from sandwiches to crudo to lasagna to braised short ribs. The pastry chef might even come out of the kitchen to casually chat about the desserts he prepared that day. For a quiet solo meal, sit at the bar with a seasonal negroni, plus the cheeseburger and delicious french fries with crispy herbs, a tangy green “601 sauce,” and pecorino cheese.
