Amy Ruth's

113 W 116th St
Manhattan, NY 10026


Established in 1998, this always-jumpin’ Harlem joint offers delicious home-cooked cuisine in a casual atmosphere. When New Yorkers debate which of the City’s soul-food restaurants serves up the best authentic Southern cuisine, Amy Ruth’s is always included in the discussion. This is thanks to a menu inspired by native Alabamian Amy Ruth Moore Bass, including fried catfish, honey-dipped fried chicken, smothered pork chops and a separate waffle menu, where the entrees are named after the likes of the Rev. Al Sharpton and Larry Dais.

Destination Harlem: Apollo Theater

Nightlife Destination Harlem: Apollo Theater

About the Apollo Theater: Harlem's acclaimed Apollo Theater is important not only because it honors and promotes the contributions of black performers but also because it is a living example of progress: the building was originally a burlesque theater that did not allow black patrons or performers. While you're in the neighborhood: Legendary Harlem eateries and music clubs are within walking distance of the neighborhood's biggest symbol, the Apollo Theater. Make the short walk south to a few worthy places for an after-dinner (or -show) drink.
