Manhattan – Harry’s

Harry’s , located on Poyntz Avenue in Manhattan, is one of those places I always wanted to visit when I was a college student but I never the the opportunity (money).  It’s certainly not the kind of place you would eat at on a regular basis, however for a special occasion, this place can’t be beat.


In fact, it is the number one rated restaurant in Manhattan, according to Trip Advisor.  The white tablecloth restaurant is located on the ground floor of the old Wareham Opera House.  It is a beautiful example of early twentieth century architecture. My service at Harry’s was excellent, and my meal, pork roundelay (seafood stuffed pork loin), was also beautiful. It was almost too pretty to eat;


Presented on a delicious bed of potatoes and under a heaping helping of greens.  Other pork menu item includes specialty pizzas and bacon wrapped chorizo stuffed dates.  Additionally, they have an abundance of fine wines to pair with any meal.


Although they take reservations, I had no trouble getting seated on a Tuesday evening without one. My wife and I  cannot wait to try more pork offerings from Harry’s on our next dinner date!

Until next time,


As we approach the holiday season and prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving this week, the folks at In Pursuit of Pork and the Kansas Pork Association have a lot to be thankful for, including bacon. Yes, we said bacon. It’s been a good year for bacon and we are anticipating lots of bacon wrapped turkeys and other bacon wrapped goodies to be gracing many tables this week.

We are also thankful for our loyal readers and want to give away this great “Bacon Power” t-shirt (size large) that our friends at The Bacon Nation sent us.

    I would wrap just about anything in bacon, even for the holidays. But, let’s be honest, bacon is awesome on its own and the foods must earn the right to be wrapped in its glorious magnificence.

  13. I have to go with avocado stuffed into a date, stuffed into a jalapeno wrapped in bacon. That is wrapped in a pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon wrapped in a turkey wrapped in bacon. If only my wife understood how important this is, I’d be doing it right now.
