If you’re craving breakfast for dinner, you can’t go wrong by heading to Amy Ruth’s. Set in an open and casual food hall where Harlem icons smize on the murals, this eatery serves Southern cuisine that fills the belly and soothes the soul. Though the chicken and waffles are perfection, we also recommend substituting in the fried catfish: it just might make an even better pairing. Don’t sleep on their cornbread appetizers either; warm, sweet, butter-melted goodness that never fails. More than breakfast, though, Amy Ruth’s is part of Harlem’s history; founded in 1998 by an Alabaman grandma with a love for the community, Christ, and good cooking that we can taste in the food. For dine in, go early on a Sunday before the church crowd comes. Lines into Amy Ruth’s can sometimes stretch down the street.
