What's up with Stephanie in Central Harlem?


By HarlemGal

Two readers have reached out to us asking que paso con Stephanie, the bodega located on the northeast corner of 116th Street and Frederick Douglass Blvd? One reader writes “the corner deli appears to be going through a major overhaul internally possibly to keep in step with their new neighbors on the boulevard.” Maybe so? I just hope they do not change the exterior. I love the colorful signage Stephanie, the corner deli wears. It makes her look unique and colorful. As for the inside, change is probably a nice business strategy in order to generate more customers. If anyone else has the scoop on what is happening with our bodega, diganos! Pronto!

  1. I would prefer a nice diner..so many bodegas in the area..with flashing lights..i miss 135th PAN PAN restaurant if only someone could do better than BIG Applebee restaurants, bodega type buffets and chicken wings..If they could only do as good as M&G’s(long time ago) was and PAN PAN’s Banana pudding ..nothing can compare …
    thanks for letting me vent

  2. They told me they were closing for renovations. They said for only 2 weeks–but it has been longer than 2 weeks. Im excited to see the new stephanie’s!

  3. Larry,
    That’s interesting to know. I did not know that. A diner on that corner would be a nice addition to our neighborhood or in the area in general.

    Thanks for the comment.

  4. When I was a kid, this space was actually a diner – burgers, booths and all. this was in the early 80’s.
