my mom came in this weekend from North Carolina so I've been doing a lot of eating, sightseeing and walking. We hit up a few of my favorite Harlem eats such as Red Rooster (where I had the most delish French toast of my life) and Melba's where I had the best catfish and pound cake. Yes...my friends...I ate like a queen this weekend but I definitely burned it all off with all the walking we did.
Red Rooster in Harlem, I got the French toast and shrimp grits. The French toast was wow! The shrimp grits were delish but not as good as Peels.
Of course I took my mom and her friend to Times Square and afterwards we got a drink at The Living Room in the W Hotel Times Square. It's one of my favorite places in the city to relax and I love the décor.
The theme for the décor was punk and they have stunning blown up photos of Madonna all around the space. It was pretty cool to check them all out.
Dinner at Melba's one of my favorite restaurants in Harlem. I always order the same thing...Catfish with collard greens and yams. I was not disappointed. The fish is always fresh and flaky. YUM!
Did a little shopping at Forever 21. I got a cool Tupac Muscle tank and a mesh bra for $21. lol. Pretty good deal I think. I love this cab they have on the bottom floor of the store too.
Took my mom to Columbus Circle and then through the park on one of those bike sleighs. It was pretty fun! then we popped over to 5th Avenue for some window shopping and photo taking before checking out Rockefeller Center. It was a day full of sites to see and I had a great time. Hope you all enjoyed your weekend!
