We regret to inform you that one of our favorite venues MOJO has closed.

We will miss MOJO and hope that the owners start something new in Harlem.

Whatever it is, we will be there.

In the meantime there’s still quite a selection from which to choose and of which we have written.

img_37563Thanks to one of HarlemCondoLife’s readers, they have shared with us the final video piece that was being filmed a few weeks back at Mojo, Harlem’s hip restaurant located at 119th Street and St. Nicholas. Check out the video below. The whole place looks red hot in the video and it turns out it is publicizing a good cause – recognizing small business!  A BIG THANK YOU TO OUR READER FOR PROVIDING THE VIDEO!

Update: Thanks to a reader of HarlemCondoLife the film crew in front of Mojo Monday night was in fact American Express.  We also contacted Amex. According to Joanna Lambert, a spokesperson with Amex,  she said in an email “they were filming in Harlem yesterday for an exciting project they will be launching in the coming weeks – stay tuned.” Interesting! Mojo is already raking in the film credits. Good for them. And hopefully Amex will keep HarlemCondoLife posted on their project!

One never knows what they will see while walking the streets of Harlem. On Monday evening, Austin2Harlem,our guest blogger and now photographer, was running errands and this is the action he saw happening in front of Mojo, one of the hottest restaurants in Central Harlem. Looks like Mojo is the backdrop for some filming or could it be the star attraction? Hmm…diganos!

MOJO by HarlemHouse

“At last” opening only two weeks ago Mojo Lounge already seems to have a steady crowd. I went on what I thought would be an empty Tuesday night for dinner and the restaurant was full with a bar crowd as well.

The decor is inviting with a blend of Moroccan flavor to it. The restaurant seats more then you would think by looking at it from the outside. Very comfortable nice atmosphere and extremely friendly efficient waitstaff. The owner “Moun” is personable and welcoming greeting various tables and making you feel at home. Also there is a nice sized “L” shaped bar along the back wall which doesn’t interfere with the dinning area and is very inviting.

I found the menu refreshing and unique for Harlem’s growing diversity of new spots popping up like weeds.

For appetizers I would recommend the Dates wrapped in bacon definitely a unique starter. Also they have a delicious range of Salads generously proportioned for an entree or shared by two. My favorite appetizer was the Grits with shiitaki mushrooms. Think outside the box, it’s not just a breakfast food. Delicious!

For Entrees I recommend the Grilled Salmon very tender nicely prepared with grapefruit slices and other unique spices. Also highly recommended are the Lamb chops with fries. Seems to be one of the most popular dishes on the menu. Perfectly seasoned and cooked to perfection. Everyone at my table was eating the fries that came with the lamb. Nothing necessarily unique about them other then that they were perfectly executed and dangerously addictive.

As for drinks, since they have only been open 2 weeks and I am picky about my cocktails, I’ll go easy on the criticism as I am sure they are growing day by day with helpful tips. The night I was there the bar service was a little slow. The mojitos were delicious once they came, however they had very little rum. Agreed by everyone at my table. They have a menu of specialty drinks that looked very good and maybe those are poured with a heavier hand. The bar is very comfortable and as I was finishing dinner I noticed it seemed to be drawing a growing crowd.

I think with Mojo’s great location, inviting atmosphere, impressive menu, and attractive crowd, it will be an instant hit in the growing scene of Harlemites.

I’m looking forward to going back and trying out more of the menu and giving the bartender a second chance on the mojitos.

Hopefully you will be fortunate to be there on a night that Adriana is working as she will instantly raise your spirits into a good mood and give you no doubt that you have picked the right place to wine and dine.

This restaurant/bar I predict will only continue to get more popular as we enthusiastically approach warmer weather and the need for great new places to relax, enjoy and fulfill our summer nights with.

It won’t be long now.  Good things come to those who wait.  The highly anticipated Cedric Bistro which resides in the old “Mojo” space on 119th Street and St. Nicholas is barreling along with construction for a summer grand opening.  An inside source at Cedric tells us that it could be as soon as early next month.  See my previous post

Originally it was scheduled to open in June but like everything else around here from condominiums to restaurants, construction delays are pushing things back.  Not too much longer now though.
We will be following their progress closely and bringing you exclusive first hand information as it develops.
Stay tuned.

HarlemGuy reported a couple weeks back about Cedric Restaurant coming to Harlem.  Cedric Lecendre, a Harlem resident and Bilboquet’s general manager and the nephew of its owner, Philippe Delgrange, has signed a lease for Cedric which will open within a month.  Stopping by there last Friday I spoke briefly with Cedric and one of the employees.  This will be a French Bistro and if reputation prevails the food will be good.  I can say they are making great progress.  As soon as I get an exact date I will share what I’ve learned.  I look forward to reviewing Cedrics as soon as it opens.

This is a perfect time of the year to open – just in time for Summer dining. Cedric’s is located at 185 Saint Nicholas Ave at 119th St. where the old Mojos was (see prior review).  This will be nice for the mini 119th street strip of restaurant/bars that includes Moca, Billie’s Black and directly next door the new Cedric Restaurant.

Stay tuned for news on the latest progress.
