New York’s official marketing and tourism organization NYC and Company‘s latest “Neighborhood X Neighborhood” unveiled its latest campaign on  Wednesday highlighting Harlem and Washington Heights , including a multipage article on Harlem’s Foodie Renaissance and a Destination:Harlem page that includes hotspots both legendary and new alike, including the Apollo Theater, the Schomburg Center, Aloft Harlem, Sylvia’s , Amy Ruth’s,  Red Rooster, Chez Lucienne, Bier International , Billie’s Black, and the Studio Museum.

“The Harlem and Washington Heights communities have rich cultural legacies that continue to thrive,” said Deputy Cultural Affairs Commissioner Margaret Morton. “From the iconic stages at the Apollo Theater and Harlem Stage, to the rich collections of the Cloisters and Studio Museum, arts organizations in these neighborhoods provide extraordinary opportunities for visitors and residents to engage with a wide range of unique cultural activities.”

We first blogged a month ago about a new Indian restaurant coming to FDB in Harlem.  The owner reached out to us yesterday and it appears they will be opening as soon as the week of May 29th.  Next week!  Exact day yet to be determined depending on the completion of their construction, but they are hoping for Wednesday.

Maharaja Palace also located on the East Side on Madison Avenue, will offer a large selection of classic Indian dishes.  For all of you vegetarians out there they also offer a large selection of vegetarian dishes.  Reasonably priced for the standards with the priciest items on the menu their Tandori specialties which is normally the case with Indian restaurants.  Here is a peek at their Tandori Specialties

They are located in the old Questans space on Frederick Douglass Boulevard (westside of the ave.) between 114th and 115th Streets.  With Jado Sushi across the street, Melbas on the adjacent corner, Frederick Bistro Cafe, Harlem Food Bar and Bier International less than a block away, Maharaja Palace will now add a much needed Indian restaurant into the mix.  Stay tuned for more information, photos and our new menu review from HarlemCondoLife.com next week after their grand opening.

NOTE: They will start their home delivery service the day of opening, scheduled for May 29th.

This Sunday, December 9, Santa is coming to Bier International!

Recently I stopped by Bier International with friends for drinks and had a great talk with Ousmane Keita, co-owner of Bier International. We discussed many things about the Harlem community and businesses sprouting up here and there on FDB and the surrounding neighborhood. With a cadence of its own, Bier International is no exception to the reviving energy in Harlem. Since opening day they have hit the ground running and were the first (or one of the first) places to offer sidewalk seating. They always have something going on at Bier International whether it is celebrating the holidays, presenting various musicians or their famous Oktoberfest which they call OktoBIERfest. This is a proper celebration in full spirit and tradition right down to a slowly roasted pig in front of the restaurant. December 2nd they hosted an afternoon performance by violinist Eliano Braz, who will be appearing again in the near future. They also have various DJ’s including DJ Ouaga spinning music from around the world, check their events calendar.

Like in München Bier International will be celebrating their third OctoBIERfest weekend with live music, pig roast, lederhosen and obviously tons of bier.

It’s always a party at Bier but this weekend has started off and will continue to be extra fun.

Swing by and have a bier, or two, or…..

Happy Oktoberfest to all of our friends at Bier International from Harlem Condo Life.

With rooftop views of Manhattan like this it is easy to understand why the Gateway Tower is 90 percent sold. We were recently informed by a Halstead Broker that they are very pleased to announce only 10 percent of the units remain in the Gateway complex. Sales are doing very well in this slowly climbing economy. I am told that affordable housing units were sold in the Gateway as well which is a good thing for the Harlem community at large.

The Gateway also includes retail spaces. The businesses that have already opened are thriving and soon to open on the 114th Street corner (where the old Society Cafe space was) will be “Frederick Cafe Bistro” by the already very successful owners of Bier International.

Looking forward to following up on the status of Gateway after witnessing a very slow start with this development. Nice to see things moving along positively for The Gateway Tower at a successful pace.

Bier International

Last week NY1 showed an entire segment on the renewed energy on Frederick Douglasss Boulevard between 110th and 124th streets.   Businesses and residents working together to make the strip a destination for all of the neighborhoods shopping needs.  They quote “What you’re now seeing is Frederick Douglass Boulevard is really becoming  sort of the Gateway to Harlem“.  A phrase we developed here at HarlemCondoLife “Your Gateway To Harlem” when we created our site.   They go on to mention some of the businesses on the Boulevard including Bier International, Harlem Flo, Harlem Vintage, MCMB Cleaners, The 5 and Diamond Restaurant, Nectar, Lido Restaurant and Bar all of which we have mentioned and reviewed here at HCL.  They also include short interview clips with owners Jai Jai Greenfield of Harlem Vintage, Louis Gagliano of Harlem Flo, Marcelo Orbe of MCMB Cleaners and Selene Martinez of 5 and Diamond.  Here is a link to the video clip    NY1 video clip.

This area continues to stay in the news and get more recognition.  Congratulations to the businesses mentioned in this report and to all of the businesses on FDB and the surrounding area.
