I thought this place was closed. Did it open again?

I haven't visited since November 2007, around the time of my original post, but last couple of times I passed by on the bus, they seemed to be open. You could call...

Hello from Seattle. My wife (then just my girlfriend) and I were doing the tourist thing by the Apollo (she's a jazz singer, so that's Mecca for her :)) -- we worked up a mean appetite with all of that walking. It was a freezing cold day in February of 2002 and we weren't about to hit a chain restaurant in Harlem! Then, Bam! We saw that sign and just knew that it was right up our alley. And it was - cozy, full of ethereal smells, windows steamed up with love and good cooking - and the great people working there? Pure charm - they made us out-of-towners feel like second cousins. Remember that old crusty sign on the wall that said "Today's Special: Fish" - That cracked me up, as if it were only "Today's" special - it looked like it had been there for all of 40 years! M&G's had more life and character than you could ever ask for. In my mind, that's what Harlem looks like. It's a pity that I can't bring my young daughter there one day. I hope there is some of "old Harlem" left for us some day when we go back. Sad.
