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.

Many weeks ago rectangular openings filled with dirt but level to the ground appeared dotting the cement sidewalks lining Frederick Douglass Blvd (8th avenue). See our previous post A Million Trees coming to Frederick Douglass Boulevard in South Harlem?
These plots have now been filled with wonderful new trees, the variety of which I am uncertain. This will be nice in the summer months especially for the restaurants which have outdoor seating.
We find this very exciting and something to look forward to this spring.

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.
