Wednesday, February 27, 2013 There will be a Live reading of the book SLAVE by critically acclaimed author Jacqueline Malcolm. It will take place at 7:00pm until 9:00pm at Les Ambassades Bar & Restaurant on Lenox Avenue in Harlem.
Looks like a great event. Please see the flyer below for more information on he Author, book and the event.
We have just received the promotional flyer and official news for the GRAN RE-OPENING of Les Ambassades Bar & Grill. The celebration will be held on Friday, August 24th, 2012 at 7PM – 10PM. This is an opportunity for other businesses, restaurants, bar/lounges and residents to welcome them to the neighborhood.
Over the past few weeks they have had Saturday night gatherings with DJ Breeze reintroducing the newly renovated Les Ambassades to the community. The two events that we blogged about of Ambassades have been well attended with an enthusiastic crowd and great vibe.
The customers of the already successful Patisserie des Amassades on Frederick Douglass Boulevard’s restaurant row will certainly want to try out Ambassades new location on Lenox. It will cater more to the bar & restaurant crowd which frequent Red Rooster, Corner Social, Chez Lucienne and other hotspots in this area of Harlem.
Please see our previous write up on Les Ambassades Bar & Restaurant Now Open and make sure to check out their Grand Opening.
Hope to see you there!

341 LENOX AVENUE (127TH STREET)
We were eating recently at Les Ambassades in Harlem and could not help but notice the signs on each eating table that said “coming soon, new location at 341 Lenox Ave.” It looks like Les Ambassades is still moving forward with it’s plans to open up another/second location in Harlem and wants it’s customers to know! Good for them! This new location would be right next to Maysles Cinema according to Google Maps. As for the timing of when this new place will open, it is still unknown. Has anyone heard anything? As always, time will tell!
According to today’s article in The Wall Street Journal, one’s palate can go global in Harlem at Les Ambassades, located at 2200 Frederick Douglass Blvd. Or should the article state going glocal, not global? For those of us who have lived in Harlem for several years, or longer, know that Les Ambassades is an international hangout that offers fabulous breads, pastries and authentic West African dishes. Our favorites are the Steak au Poivre, Salad Nicoise, and their homemade single-size Creme Brulee. We’ve also gone in for a cup of coffee to go and the java of the day is much better than that other place right across the street.
We stopped by yesterday (May 21) to check out the new and second location for Les Ambassades at 341 Lenox Avenue. The place is nice and spacious. It is much bigger than their first location in Harlem.
When you enter there is the take out counter to the right, which features crepes, smoothies, milkshakes, select hot food, pastries and breads, soft drinks and ice cream-all to go! If you want to sit down and eat, walk further in. There you will find a complete buffet of West African cuisine. The menu is included in the slideshow, which like their Frederick Douglass Blvd location is moderately priced. The different ideas we found on the menu are the crepes, smoothies and milkshakes. Most of the other items on the menu appeared identical to its FDB menu.
To visit Ambassades Buffet at 341 Lenox Ave, take the 2/3 subway train to 125th! See you there!

A reader of HarlemCondoLife informed us about a new 100,000 square-foot development that will be opening at 301-303 125th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard. The four story building will include a DSW discount shoe store, Joe’s Crab Shack restaurant and Blink Fitness expected to be finished in 2013. With a Red Lobster opening up next to the Apollo Theater we will soon have two new seafood restaurants on 125th Street.
We recently wrote about the plans for a Whole Foods to be one of many new businesses coming into the development to be built in the vacant lot on 125th Street and Lenox Avenue. With the landmark Apollo Theater and all of the traffic that it brings from all over the city I imagine this will only increase this busy 125th Street area. WIth the heavily trafficked restaurants on Lenox Avenue, Red Rooster, Sylvia’s, Corner Social and the newly opened Les Ambassades there are plenty of great restaurants to eat at after an afternoon of shopping. Also Cedric Bistro and Billie’s Black on 119th Street and too many restaurants to list on Frederick Douglass Boulevard which is now referred to as Harlem’s Restaurant Row.
Harlem’s 125th Street is a dynamic retail neighborhood with a wide variety of restaurants and a tremendous amount of foot traffic surrounding the area. With subway lines on both Lenox Avenue and Frederick Douglass Boulevard, the amount of retail space, community residents and colleges in the surrounding area it is not surprising that Harlem is starting to attract more chain retailers.
