Restaurant Review: Flat Top

flat topI recently went to Flat Top with my brother and daughter and we enjoyed it very much. I enjoyed it so much that I went back the following week with my husband and daughter.

The first time I shared the mussles as an appetizer and had the shrimp appetizer as an entrée with a side of broccoli rabe. My brother had the chicken dish which he said was the best meal he’s had in sometime. We shared the semi-sweet chocolate mousse for dessert which was yummy.

The following time I shared the burrata caprese salad which was delicious. I had the chicken dish which was exquisite. All were delicious but my favorite was the chicken dish and the bread pudding which I had for dessert and split with my husband. He by the way, also had the chicken dish.

Flat Top is a bistro that has been open for a little over a year now on Amsterdam Avenue. It is charming inside and what I also like about it is that it is not super crowded.

Can’t wait to go back and try some other tasty dishes!

Harlem Condo Life (Review) Koko Wings – Manhattan Valley

My husband, daughter and I stopped by recently when we were looking for a place to eat. We saw Koko Wings on 106th off Broadway and looked at the menu. We gave it a shot and enjoyed it.

Koko Wings is about 1 month old and they have

boneless

great Korean wings. They are delicious and come in Hot and Spicy, Garlic  flavored or a combination. I had the hot and spicy wings, my husband had the boneless. I ordered the sweet potato fries and they were served with a honey mustard dip which I enjoyed. It comes with a side so I had the cole slaw which was delicious too.

We can’t wait to got back or order in!

Daniel Asbury Mixon from Harlem, New York City is an American jazz Pianist.
Currently you can hear him at the newly revised and highly sought upon Jazz Supper Club Minton’s in Harlem.
A prolific piano virtuoso who has performed in the U. S. and Internationally, Daniel Asbury Mixon was born on August 19, 1949 in Harlem and raised in Brooklyn, New York. Growing up in a musical household he was influenced by his mother and grandparents beginning his early artistic expression at the age of 3. He studied and performed as a tap dancer at the Ruth Williams Dance Studio and even then was known as “The Show Stopper.” Danny attended the High School of Performing Arts with dance as his major.

During an afternoon outing at the Apollo Theatre with his grandfather Danny was inspired by the jazz musicians he heard. It was then that he decided that he would like to be a pianist and he never once looked back.

In May of 2004 Danny was one of the first musicians to be honored by the National Jazz Museum in Harlem in a series entitled “Harlem Speaks,” which resulted in an invitation to the White House for Black Music Month on June 22nd.

Danny’s greatest joy is performing, composing, and arranging for his own group “The Danny Mixon Trio or Quartet,” Danny is currently the Musical Director at Minton’s.

This kind of talent doesn’t grow on trees.  Danny Mixon and all of the jazz musicians at Minton’s are what makes Harlem so great.  If you have not yet visited Minton’s Supper Club in Harlem, and you are a lover of good food and REAL JAZZ, we highly recommend it.   See our previous write up on Minton’s Supper Club, Harlem’s Opening Night at Minton’s
