Monday through Sunday just pick a night for freshly prepared food (MENU- a word from the chef) and a popular bar scene. For those of us living here in Harlem we already know Harlem Food Bar has become quite the trendy spot. I have to say whether I go there on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or on a weekend night, I always meet new and interesting people. It draws a wide spectrum of Harlem’s crowd in a comfortable setting. Like the fact that last night a customer stopped in for dinner and beer on the way home to 149th street, and a couple having drinks at the bar were from Third Avenue in East Harlem. It is a very friendly environment for a quick bite or long evening of drinks and dinner. Don’t be surprised if you see a celebrity having a casual dinner or a film crew filming at this Harlem hot spot.
Spring, Summer and Fall you can always look forward to the outside dining which Harlem Food Bar and across the street neighbor Bier International have set up nicely.
NOTE: Customers can now call ahead for Pick-up Orders. Call 212-222-9570 to place your order. If you haven’t tried their turkey or veggie burger I highly recommend it. Best turkey burger in Harlem.
The Gateway Tower on Frederick Douglass Boulevard between 113th and 114th Street was hit by the hard hurricane winds of Sandy and their green awning collapsed. A couple of the unit owners and doormen of the building secured it down during the storm with rope so that it wouldn’t get damaged or hurt any passers by. Right next door to The Gateway is Harlem Food Bar and Frederick Cafe Bistro which the awning runs along as well.
We are told there was roof damage from hurricane sandy to a couple of the penthouse terraces and metal siding at the Gateway Tower as well. I’m sure many other building here in Harlem have damages from the storm. Hopefully no major collapses and damages came from the 90 mph winds.
