Memo to Bill
TO: William Jefferson Clinton
FROM: The Editors
Congratulations on your decision to lease office space in Harlem. We do, however, feel compelled to warn you about your new neighborhood. While Harlem is rich in history, churches and Democrats, it's also a dietary minefield. A slew of new restaurants has opened recently, serving the best Southern food Harlem has seen in years. You are no doubt aware of the peril such restaurants can pose for the older, less active ex-President. So with your permission, we'd like to offer a list of addresses to avoid. In fact, you might consider eating most of your meals in Chappaqua.
1. Bayou Most dishes here are fairly innocuous, at least for Creole food. But watch out for the fried oysters, served on buttery spinach and topped with slabs of melted brie. You'd have to jog for miles to erase the calories in one oyster--and you get four to a plate (308 Lenox Ave.; 212-426-3800).
