Let’s hope the pizza is good and the service is friendly and efficient. Looking forward to stopping in this week to check it out for ourselves and you can be sure that we will blog about our experience.

With 1 Forno, Bad Horse pizza, and further East Patsy’s in Harlem, we have great pizza options in west, central and east Harlem.  Who needs to go below 110th Street anymore for pizza!

Tonnie’s Minis in Harlem closed? (temporarily)

It appears Tonnie’s Minis in Harlem has been closed for the last few weeks.  A couple weeks ago friend to our blog DestinationHarlemTV mentioned it to us and I thought I’d give it a little time before posting to see if they would reopen.  Passing by the other day they were still closed and I snapped this shot.

I spoke with the manager at their Broadway location today and was told the Harlem location is in fact closed but only temporarily.  They hope to reopen again next week for business.  Stay tuned… we will let you know as soon as we know when they have reopened so we can all go show our support!

Broiled Giant Spicy Prawns, Yam Flapjack, Piri Piri Sauce.

The highly anticipated Cecil opens today with a frenzy of social media flying in as fast as they possibly can just to experience what all the buzz is about.  We here at Harlem Condo Life are among the enthusiastic media, and look forward to our first time experience with Cecil.  We have high hopes  for this old meets  new establishment and newest addition to Harlem Restaurant Row.  They have our attention with small plates such as “Broiled Giant Spicy Prawns, Yam Flapjack, with Piri Piri Sauce” (above ) and “Spicy Crispy Ginger Squid with Okra and Sweet Chili Peanut Sauce.”  Or a shared bowl for two of Afro / Asian / American Gumbo (Smoked Turkey, Chinese Chicken Sausage, Gulf Shrimp, and Crabmeat)

Take a peek at Cecil’s menu (below) with a scrumptious assortment by – Chefs Alexander Smalls – Restauranteur, and Joseph “JJ” Johnson – Chef de Cuisine.

The Cecil MENU.  Here is a photo they sent us of their sticky buns.  I don’t know about dinner, but I am ready for these sticky buns right now!  They also were recently written up in the Huffington Post, The Hollywood Reporter and The Wall Street Journal.  Both The Cecil and Minton’s were mentioned in Huff Post BLACK VOICES and one dish in particular that stood out to us was the “Black Benne Seed Ahi Tuna.”  Looks delicious.
