I recently had lunch at Kichenette Uptown in Harlem with my husband and 9 week old daughter and loved it. Granted it was a week day so we did not have to wait but the food was as good as always and definitely worth the wait had there been a line.
I had the Tuna Melt with cheddar and tomato on a homemade English muffin which was delicious. My husband had the Turkey Rueben served on rye with coleslaw which was just as delicious. Their hot sandwiches are served with a choice of garlic fries, coleslaw, a field green salad or mashed butternut squash.
We love Kitchenette because besides having delicious breakfast, lunch, dinner, desserts and milkshakes they are very kid friendly. They have Kids’ Birthday Parties where children can decorate their own cupcakes, cookies or make ice cream sundaes. Makes me wish I was a kid again!

My husband, daughter and I recently had lunch at Frederick Café Bistro located at 2104 Frederick Douglass Boulevard and enjoyed it very much. I had the lentil soup and the Norwegian Smoked Salmon Panini. My husband had the chicken soup and the Ham and Cheese Croissant. The service was attentive and the place has a nice casual vibe. My daughter was in a stroller and they accommodated it. We will be back to enjoy some more delicious food and to try out their brunch.
Please check out their website for their full menu and more information.

I recently dined at Isola Restaurant located at 994 Columbus Avenue (108/109th streets) and it was great! Sicilian born Sebastiano Cappitta relocated it from the Upper West Side and the restaurant is large and has outdoor seating.
Isola has a wood-fire brick oven where they cook fabulous home-made pastas and pizza. We had a margherita thin-crust pizza to begin with along with the tomatoes and fresh mozzarella appetizer and the fried calamari which the waitress recommended. Normally, I am not a fried calamari fan but it was fresh and delicious. For dinner I had the Parpadelle Ai Funghi Porcini and Truffle pasta (which is now my favorite dish there) and the rest of my party had the Fettuccine alla Bolognese, the Ravioli with spinach and ricotta, the Lasagna al forno and the chicken dish. All were home made pastas and were yummy! We topped it off with 2 delicious desserts. One was a chocolate molten dessert and the other a crepe with bananas and nutella.
They have a full bar and a great wine selection. The service was excellent, the prices reasonable, and the manager was visible and stopped by our table. I heard they have a great brunch I look forward to stopping by for it.
