For The Curious Uptowner, a big part of exploring Harlem - and recommending things to see and do on her blog (https://www.thecuriousuptowner.com/) - consists of eating and drinking her way across the neighborhood. No restaurant is too off-the-beaten-path or challenging to get into, but once she's sitting down, The Curious Uptowner is definitely that person who will pull out her phone to take a picture of her food.
