Cititour: The New York Guide to Events, Restaurants, Music, and Nightlife



Cuisine: American


Comfort foods are what you will find at Alison, a neighborhood spot in East Harlem. Think bar snacks like crispy feta rolls, oysters on the half shell and fried oyster sliders. Delve deeper and you will discover small plates of Cheese Croquettes with gruyere & Dijon mustard cream, Buffalo Shrimp with blue cheese dressing and Falafel crisped up with tahini sauce. Mains include Braised Short Rib with mashed potatoes and roasted vegetables, Steak Frites with peppercorn sauce, and homemade pastas, including Torchiette & Prawns in a saffron-garlic sauce. Local and craft beers are offered along with a selection of red, white and sparkling wines.
