While in NY for vacation, my best friend and I decided to do something spontaneous. We decided to walk around Harlem and eat somewhere we’ve never eaten before. We actually walked into La Bodega 47 and walked back out. We were looking for a weekend Happy Hour and that was super tough to find. We walked to one more spot and decided La Bodega 47 was going to be the winning spot. When you walk in, it’s a huge velvet curtain keeping you anticipating on what’s inside. I thought that made this spot really cute and intimate. We looked over the menu and saw various dishes that sounded great.
I ended up going for the Sunday Supper which includes 1 small plate, 1 larger plate, and a 1/2 carafe sangria or rum punch for $27. I went for the Sangria. My small plate was bodega mac and cheese which was made with Canadian aged cheddar, blue and pecorino. I want to go back to NY just for this. I love mac and cheese!The larger plate for me was the basil curry chicken which is made with cocunut, mild green curry, basil, and jasmine rice. This was good but if I paid for this as a solo dish for $15, I would tell you it wasn’t worth it. It was still flavorful but I’ve had better.
