Manhattan – Harlem

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.
