After more than a quarter century in her original namesake location at 59th Street and Prospect, Denise Hayes closed the popular family-style dining spot in late 2009 and opened the comfortable Troost location, where her kitchen staff still prepares hefty breakfast platters and soul-food suppers. The sunny, attractive dining room boasts comfortable upholstered booths, uncloaked tables and a counter with stools, where patrons reflect the ethnic diversity of this midtown neighborhood. Niecie's Sunrise Breakfast deal may be the best way to start any morning: two strips of bacon or one sausage patty, one egg, toast or biscuit and a cup of coffee for not much more than you'd spend for just a cup of coffee elsewhere around town. The list of daily specials, handwritten on a whiteboard at the front entrance, changes each morning, but there's almost always fried chicken and beef stew, salmon croquettes, smothered chicken, oxtails, and Salisbury steak. Golden Boy pies and homemade cakes and fruit cobblers are the dessert specialties.
