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.

(Every Friday night, from 8 p.m. until.., DJ Ouaga spinning world beats.  See Bier International’s  website below for “December Events” and Menu.)

Out of the ashes of the FDB wineshop pioneer Harlem Vintage comes…….. Vintage Harlem. Under new ownership and new management, the warm, woody structure of the store hasn’t changed, but now there’s an expanded spirits section, more easily recognizable wines and a traditional merchandising-by-region setup.

The soft opening is now, and we look forward to discovering and definitely supporting the new Vintage Harlem.  Don’t forget to drop by, and check it out.

Harlem Food Bar

Monday through Sunday just pick a night for freshly prepared food (MENU- a word from the chef) and a popular bar scene.  For those of us living here in Harlem we already know Harlem Food Bar has become quite the trendy spot.  I have to say whether I go there on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or on a weekend night, I always meet new and interesting people.  It draws a wide spectrum of Harlem’s crowd in a comfortable setting.  Like the fact that last night a customer stopped in for dinner and beer on the way home to 149th street, and a couple having drinks at the bar were from Third Avenue in East Harlem.  It is a very friendly environment for a quick bite or long evening of drinks and dinner.  Don’t be surprised if you see a celebrity having a casual dinner or a film crew filming at this Harlem hot spot.

Spring, Summer and Fall you can always look forward to the outside dining which Harlem Food Bar and across the street neighbor Bier International have set up nicely.

NOTE: Customers can now call ahead for Pick-up Orders.  Call 212-222-9570 to place your order.  If you haven’t tried their turkey or veggie burger I highly recommend it.  Best turkey burger in Harlem.

Reliable sources tell us that the owner of Baby Yogurt is about to sign a lease for one of the commercial spaces in the Gateway Tower on Frederick Douglass  Boulevard between 113th & 114th Streets.  Baby Yogurt offers a variety of flavors of frozen yogurt, created using “Yogorino”, an Italian process that produces a low-calorie, low fat confection that is “healthy enough for a baby” (their motto).  A nail salon has already leased the adjacent storefront in the Gateway Tower.
