Name That Place

19 Apr

It’s been awhile since we played Name That Place. To shake off the rust, I’ve tossed a softball your way. In fact, I hope I’m not insulting your New York food intelligence with it.

The avatar I use for Fried Neck Bones…and Some Home Fries has the words from a sign of what was a soul institution in Harlem, and a place I wrote about in these pages early on, the late, great M&G Diner (see  Across 125th Street). Those words are “Old Fashion’ But Good!” and they apply to place in question.  Now that I’ve given you that substantial hint, here are a series of photos that should wrap this gift up for you and have you easily naming it.

Looks like any "old fashion'" diner counter, doesn't it?

Bonus points if you can also identify what I'm about to stuff into my mouth.

And here is the final hint.

Good luck and leave your answers in the comments section below. On Monday I will reveal the place.
