Harlem In The Hamptons (or is it The Hamptons In Harlem)?

By HarlemGuy                                                                                                                                 One of my favorite pastimes while traveling is looking for references to Harlem.

So I was pleasantly surprised to see the following roadside sign while driving back from a recent trip to Amaganset in the Hamptons.

Curious, I ran in to confirm what I suspected.  As many of you may know we have a Levain Bakery right here in Harlem’s Gold Coast / Restaurant row, on the West Side of Frederick Douglass Boulevard, between 116th and 117th.  A few steps away from Harlem Tavern, Lido, and a few blocks away from Melba’s, Society, Five & Diamond, Bier International and Zoma, to name just a few.

That being said I took the opportunity to stop by, spend a moment with one of the owners and the staff who were of course suitably dressed.  I particularly loved the Harlem 10026 T-shirt!

I love that we have a little piece of the Hamptons in Harlem.  Better yet, I love that there’s a little bit of Harlem in the Hamptons.

This is made all the sweeter (no pun intended) when you consider that Levain bakery is also one of Oprah’s favorites.

And of course my favorite cookie is what else but Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip.

Of which I promptly purchased several.

In Harlem, of course (smile).
