This longtime Harlem standby has been frying up chicken the old-fashioned way for more than two decades. Chef-Owner Charles Gabriel employs an uncommon method of slow-frying in a giant skillet — large enough to fit 25 pieces at a time — until every piece of chicken is golden-brown on all sides. He then serves the chicken with a variety of Southern-style sides, like sweet cornbread, mac and cheese, and collard greens.

At one of NYC's finest steakhouses, the steak is perfection — but one appetizer is addictive. On The Best Thing I Ever Ate, Tyler claims BLT's simple Gruyere Popovers are utterly sensational. It's a great start to any of BLT's luscious Porterhouses or Filet Mignons.
