Bier International in Harlem
By HarlemMom -
I had brunch this past weekend at Bier International in Harlem. The food was excellent as always. I had the scrambled eggs with hummus, pita wedges and a green salad. My husband had his favorite, the Portuguese Linguica and Scrambled Eggs Fajitas. His was served with guacamole and baby organic greens as well. This place never misses on food, however this time the service was lacking and we reflected it in our tip. This has been one of our favorite places in Harlem since they opened, so this is why we were surprised by our server. Unfortunately, the owners Ousmane Keita and Chris Pollok were not there this day. One or both of them are usually there and two of the nicest guys in Harlem.
This being said, our waitress gave us menus but took a while to come by to take our order and it was not because she was busy. We placed our order which included a juice for my husband. My coffee came but we had to call her over and remind her about the juice which had been at the service area for some time. We saw a table of 5 near us that had menus but they got up and left due to her lack of service. Besides great food Bier International is in my opinion the best kid friendly place on the boulevard. This might have to do with the fact that both Chris and Ousmane have kids of their own. The food is consistently good and normally so is the service. This is why I wanted to share my experience.
We look forward to many more great meals there with our infant daughter.

Looks like Harlem will be getting a new pizzeria in the same location on Harlem Restaurant Row where “Pizzeria 123″ was. Our source tells Harlem Condo Life that construction is underway and word on the street is that it will be called “Fuel”. I like it!
Now with 1 Forno (great pizza and priced well on 116th Street), Bad Horse Pizza (on the pricier side but delicious) and this new place, we will have a lot of options. As far as I’m concerned you can never have too many Pizza spots!!
*Location: Old pizza place, on 123 rd st was Pizzeria 123. (review)

Cantina 1838 located at 1838 Adam Clayton Powell has a great happy hour. The restaurant has a nice size bar, offers good service, food and drinks. You can’t go wrong with $2.00 tacos and $4.00 beers and margaritas during their happy hour from 4-7 pm. We had the chicken, fish and pork tacos along with beer and margaritas.
Pork, Chicken anf Fish Tacos
I am looking forward to dinner there next as they have a great menu including short rib burritos and lobster and chipotle tacos to name a few. If you are looking for a great “Happy Hour” and authentic Mexican food in Harlem you should definitely try it out. Here is their MENU.
