When you’re craving comfort food, Melba’s is the answer. Melba Wilson learned the tricks of cooking soul food at her aunt's famed eatery Sylvia's, and now her nearby South Harlem staple is equally known for its down-home classics. The fried chicken is a must, especially when served atop eggnog waffles. By day, Melba's is relaxed and homey, but at night, it takes on a whole new lively character. No matter when you go, it always feels like a home-away-from-home, due in no small part to the presence of Melba herself.
