Restaurateur Melba Wilson says she is “born, bread and buttered” in Harlem, and this sleek, busy uptown spot lives up to that motto from top to bottom. The menu features handed-down favorites from Melba’s Southern Carolina grandmother: wine-braised short ribs, catfish po’ boys, the requisite chicken and waffles, and sides such as black-eyes peas and collard greens. Don’t be surprised if you see Oprah’s best friend Gayle, a self-proclaimed fan, noshing at a nearby table.
