Alvin and Friends in New Rochelle, NY- Happy Hump Day with A Post Discovery Southern Meal

This was a big dinner at Alvin and Friends in New Rochelle. There were about 15 of us after a project discovery meeting. Alvin’s is always comfortably inviting with delicious southern food. I brought the group here after my last meal at Alvin’s; the experience of the slow-simmered oxtail was so good. Alvin did not disappoint this time. We had laughter, alcohol of all varieties, duck breast, skirt steak, fried oysters, Haitian piklis, and calloloo. Everything was finger-licking’ good!

Happy Hump Day! May your day pass quickly and painlessly.
