There are a lot of French restaurants around Harlem, but our favorite of the bunch is Maison Harlem. It’s an all-day spot that feels a bit like Cheers - everyone seems to know everyone’s name around here. There are regulars for lunch, big crowds at brunch, and people on casual dates at dinner - though the smartest time to hit it is probably on weekdays from 11am to 7pm, when there’s $5 beer and wine and $1 oysters. The quiche lorraine here will turn you into a quiche person.
