More room at Melba’s Restaurant in Harlem

She’s got a new book out and more space to dine in for her customers! Nice way to start the summer! That’s Melba Wilson I’m talking about. You know, the original HarlemGal who always says “born, bred and buttered in Harlem.”

Wilson purchased the space next door, which I believe was a hair salon, for her restaurant called Melba’s located on the southwest corner of 114th Street and Frederick Dougkass Blvd. 

Next time you stop by Melba’s, there will be more elbow room to eat those waffles with fried chicken and hopefully no more wait lines! Congrats Melba!

What a week so far for Melba’s Restaurant in Harlem! On Monday night, Christine Quinn, NYC mayoral candidate, stopped by for a women’s event. Last night, Tuesday, singing star Katy Perry and her posse dined in Harlem at Melba’s on 114th Street and Frederick Douglass Blvd.

Ironically, Tuesday nights at Melba’s is open mic night. Did Katy Perry sing at Melba’s? According to our source, who sent us the info along with photos, say Ms. Perry “enjoyed a delicious meal and the entertainment after still relaxing from all the hectic festivities from the MTV VMAs.”

Melba’s Restaurant in Harlem is not only known for her down to earth comfort food, but also for its celebrity sightings such as: Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, and Tamar and Vince. Clearly, celebrities love coming to Harlem and places, such as Melba’s. Harlem is a great getaway for celebs that want to venture uptown and get some privacy versus the downtown madness.
