Though it's lost few if any acolytes, Sylvia's is hardly a Harlem hangout anymore. On any given night, you can find more Columbia students there than you can in study hall, not to mention Asian tourists by the busload. Still, that hasn't changed Her Majesty's covenant by one black-eyed pea. The hot ribs still fall right off the bone. Pork chops induce finger-licking. And desserts like rum cake and coconut cake are deliriously good.
