Earl’s Beer and Cheese – Harlem, NYC

Look at that Beer-Cheese.

Review By: Stefanie Parks –

This is the second time I’ve been to Earl’s Beer and Cheese and really all I have to say is that it’s probably one of the coolest places I’ve ever been to and their Beer-Cheese is most definitely one of the best foods I’ve ever eaten (second best in NY, to be exact).

Yep, that’s all you really need to know…

But, for those of you who need to know more…

You would probably never find Earl’s Beer and Cheese if you didn’t know it existed. It’s a tiny hole-in-the-wall and if I’m remembering correctly, it doesn’t even have a name anywhere on/above/around the door. Just some cool and colorful Christmas lights (I love Christmas lights, duh). You walk in and see one big communal table, a few stools surrounding the perimeter, a bar slash ordering area, and… that’s it. That’s Earl’s Beer and Cheese. And it’s awesome.

And the menu? Well, if you like beer and you like cheese, then this is the place for you. Even if you don’t like beer or cheese, you should still try their Beer-Cheese because it’s the best. Even the toast that this dish comes with to spread the cheese on is the best. It also comes with raw garlic cloves to rub onto the bread before spreading on the cheese. Again, the best.

To be honest, anything that I say about this place or this one dish in particular just won’t (can’t) do it justice. So, do yourself a favor and get to Earl’s Beer and Cheese ASAP.
