There are few foods that make both young and old happy like pizza does. The combination of bread, tomatoes and cheese is so fundamental that virtually everyone likes it. This opulent take on pizza pairs a richly textured crust with salty slices of prosciutto and tender slabs of mozzarella. And this flatbread is not strictly for brunch — cut into small pieces, it also makes a great hors d’oeuvre at a cocktail party.

Bier International is Harlem’s first beer garden. Serving international and domestic beers paired with international dishes, they offer over 15 beers on tap and 30 by the bottle. Ousmane Keita and Chris Pollok brought the Bier Garden to Harlem in 2009 when they noticed the need for one in the community. This Classic Tarte Flambée, as it is known in French, or Flammkuchen, as it is known in German, is a European style flatbread that is a favorite for dinner at the Bier Garden. They serve several different varieties, including a daily special, and they suggest pairing it with Palma Luca.
