Dine In with Take Out: Volume 3
KYSHA HARRIS Food Editor, @SCHOPgirl | 4/23/2020, midnight
Are you asking yourself, “Where should I order/pick up food nowadays?” Here is our list of open and serving Harlem restaurants to try this week.
East Harlem: Amor Cubano
(www.amorcubanonyc.com, 212-996-1220, 12-9 p.m. daily)
Who couldn’t use an authentic el Cubano pressed sandwich with roasted pork, ham, swiss cheese, pickles and mustard ($11) right now?! Not us. Let them take care of your tastebuds.
West Harlem: babbalucci
(www.babbalucci.com, reduced hours, delivery ONLY)
Need a true Sunday gravy on a Tuesday? If it is available, please order their short rib lasagna with béchamel, mozzarella and grana Padano cheese ($18). It will seriously hurt your feelings…in a good, food-coma kinda way.
North Harlem: Fumo
On a normal Sunday night, this place is packed for $10 pasta dinner and great pasta at that. During this time, they are offering 10% off for delivery and 15% off for pick-up. We say go for a walk and get the arugula salad with shaved parmesan, grape tomatoes, green apple and lemon olive oil ($14) and the spaghetti carbonara ($18).
QUICK SAFETY TIPS:
Choose contactless delivery/pick up when ordering.
Pay online or through your smartphone if possible.
Immediately remove food containers from bags at the door.
Wash your hands and disinfect the outside of the containers before opening.
Decant all food onto your own dishes.
Refrigerate leftovers immediately and try to consume by the next day.
