In our first season back in 2000 we covered Well's Famous in Harlem the place where Chicken and Waffles was invented up north. Well chicken and waffles are back big time as we tour three places, all downtown putting out excellent versions of fried chicken, waffles, biscuits doughnuts, pies and other southern specialties.
Two restaurants that are wine lovers paradise, both affiliated with wine shop. Racine's is linked to Chambers St Wines down the block, spot on French inspired menu and an amazing selection of wines by the glass or bottle. Wine Disciples is a store right next to a restaurant, here the cooking is American / Italian, ingredient driven and the wine list by glass and bottle is wonderful.
