In New York Magazine’s Eat Cheap issue this week, Harlem’s superstar chef Marcus Samuelsson shares his favorite inexpensive bites in the neighborhood. He definitely choses a wide range of ¬†cuisines. ¬†It reminded me that there are plenty of places to explore when hunger strikes. Did he leave out anyone’s favorites? My friend from North Carolina (who considers himself a rib connoisseur) recommends the babyback ribs from Harlem BBQ on Frederick Douglass and 127th st.
