Harlem Condo Life Review – Boulevard Bistro (BLVD)

blvd-11-md

My husband, daughter and I recently ate dinner at Boulevard Bistro and enjoyed it a lot.  We had a booth table which was comfortable and the decor and service were great.  There was a large party next to us who also had a baby and they were served rather quickly as we were too.

My husband had the organic fried chicken which is served with smoked turkey collards and southern potato salad.  I had the turkey meatloaf topped with wild mushroom and visalia onion gravy, with parmesan mashed potatoes and vegetables.  We topped off our meal with the German cake which was also delicious.

We plan on going back soon for their brunch which we are hearing good things about.

If you haven’t tried BLVD Bistro in Harlem yet, we recommend it.  Four stars on Yelp and a cozy inviting interior easily help make BLVD a charming addition to Harlem.  Stay tuned for our part-two review on Boulevard Bistro.

Cooling Down When Harlem Is Heating Up

By tharealharlemista                                                                                                                    The oppressive heat in Harlem this week is no joke. Go into the 125th st subway station and it feels like you’re bathing in Hell. Bring a fan. And lots of water.

Hopefully some folks are spending the day at community pools, watching multiple features at the Magic Johnson Theatre or enjoying the many air conditioned restaurants and drinking establishments uptown.

Or maybe if you’re lucky, you can find an open fire hydrant like this one on 122nd St off Frederick Douglass Blvd and cool down like a kid (or a kid at heart).

If all else fails and you want to find a cooling center near you, call 311 or use the OEM’s online Cooling Center Finder.
