Looks like Harlem will be getting a new pizzeria in the same location on Harlem Restaurant Row where “Pizzeria 123” was.  Our source tells Harlem Condo Life that construction is underway and word on the street is that it will be called “Fuel”.  Sounds good.

Now with 1 Forno (great pizza and priced well on 116th Street), Bad Horse Pizza (on the pricier side but delicious) and this new place, we will have a lot of options.  As far as I’m concerned you can never have too many Pizza spots!!

Stay tuned… for more information on Custom Fuel Pizza in Harlem.

*Location: Old pizza place, on 123 rd st was Pizzeria 123. (review)

I recently had lunch at Kichenette Uptown in Harlem with my husband and 9 week old daughter and loved it.  Granted it was a week day so we did not have to wait but the food was as good as always and definitely worth the wait had there been a line.

I had the Tuna Melt with cheddar and tomato on a homemade English muffin which was delicious.  My husband had the Turkey Rueben served on rye with coleslaw which was just as delicious.  Their hot sandwiches are served with a choice of garlic fries, coleslaw, a field green salad or mashed butternut squash.

We love Kitchenette because besides having delicious breakfast, lunch, dinner, desserts and milkshakes they are very kid friendly.  They have Kids’ Birthday Parties where children can decorate their own cupcakes, cookies or make ice cream sundaes.  Makes me wish I was a kid again!

See their MENU.

Contemporary luxury spacious homes are still available on West 123rd Street at Windows On 123.  Although only a few available Loft units remain (their website indicates 3 with 1 in contract) priced over 1 million, they are loaded with top-tier surfaces and amenities, balconies, private yards and many with private keyed elevator entries.  Visit Availability.

Effortless Luxury.
Extraordinary Quality.
Superb Execution.

What you see at WINDOWS ON 123 is extraordinary: homes dressed in fine finishes; wall-to-wall banks of crystal clear glass that capture abundant natural light; exceptionally generous floorpans; and all the conveniences one expects from a luxury residence.

But what you can’t see at WINDOWS is equally outstanding.

You can’t see the countless hours of designing, planning, and immaculate construction poured into every square foot to make it the perfect place to live. You can’t see the sound-proofing between each home; the modern infrastructure built for your needs now, and for the future. You can’t see the seamless craftsmanship that secures every piece of masonry, cabinetry, tile, stone, and hardwood flooring.

With 26 glorious, sun-filled, exceptionally spacious homes, 117W123 is the absolute fulfillment of contemporary luxury. Floor plans that break all of Manhattan’s rules; amenities and finishes that surpass every expectation.

The world famous chef  and Harlem resident Marcus Samuelsson will host a Harlem Community Day on Monday, June 25th in support of his forthcoming memoir, Yes, Chef.  In association with Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, the neighborhood-focused day will be held from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Marcus Garvey Park at the Richard Rodgers Amphitheater (123rd Street and Mount Morris Park West) and is free to attend.

Marcus Samuelsson who travels the globe regularly is constantly involved with an activity or new event here in Harlem.  His critically acclaimed Red Rooster and newest success Ginny’s Supper Club (in which we recently raved about last weeks Jimmy Scott appearance) continue to enrich our community.  We never expect to run into Marcus himself at these events yet it seems miraculously he is always there with a smile to greet you!  This is why it does not surprise us that he has chosen Harlem to celebrate with him a day before his national release of his well anticipated Memoir.

YES, CHEF, which will be published on June 26th, describes Marcus’ love for Harlem and his gratitude towards this supportive community.  In recognition of this Marcus has chosen to launch Yes, Chef at Marcus Garvey Park a day before the book’s national release.  He will introduce the book with a fun-filled roster of activities and offerings that celebrate the residents, organizers and businesses of the neighborhood.

For a full list of events please visit Harlem Community Day.

Did you know the cupcakes from Tonnie’s Minis located at 264 Lenox Avenue are now available at Bloomingdales? I learned this from this television report. That’s wonderful news for Tonnie and his fans. Fans and newcomers have two options to purchase cupcake treats. At Bloomies, you can get a California size cupcake or a mini, but if you can’t get to that gigantic department store for a delicious bite of a Tonnie’s Minis cupcake, don’t fret. The other options is to go to the boutique store in Harlem located at 123rd Street and Lenox Avenue.

I went there recently with a friend visiting from Africa. The place is so cute with a bright orange awning and it smells divine when you enter! The sweet smell exists due to the fact that the room is filled with so many cupcake options. If you want a grande cupcake with your choice of icing, no problem! They have it!

If you want a pequeno size or two, go with the mini! Of course, when my friend and I went to Tonnie’s, out of all the cupcakes we could have purchased, we went with the red velvet mini cupcake. Yum! Why break with tradition…right? Eating red velvet anything (cake or cupcake) is a natural tendency when you live in Harlem. Want to partake in this tendency? Head on over to Tonnie’s Minis by foot or on the 2/3 subway line! You will enjoy the cupcake experience as well as a nice and spacious walk along Lenox Avenue!

There seems to be plenty of condo activity happening along our favorite boulevard in Harlem, i.e. Frederick Douglass Blvd!

We received notice, along with every other site, that 2280 FDB, a new residential development in Harlem, has been FHA approved. Yeah! Good for them.

Then as you walk south, you Read more of this article »
