The day has finally arrived.   Say farewell to Citarella’s Harlem location at 461 West 125th Street.  They are open today, Sunday 4, 17, 2011 until 8PM.

I wonder if the success of Bestyet and other recently opened stores are the reason for Citarella’s closing their Harlem location.

Correction: We went by the supermarket this morning for the Grand Opening. Nothing was happening. A cashier told us it is scheduled for March 5 at 10 AM. We now have more advance notice so mark your calendars!

A while back a reader provided the details on Best Yet’s grand opening! It is happening today, March 1, 2010 at 11 AM! Here are the details again:

GRAND OPENING/RIBBON CUTTING CEREMONY
Best Yet Market in Harlem
2187 Frederick Douglass Blvd.
118 Street-119 Street and Frederick Douglas
Date: March 5
Time: 10 AM

And take a look at all the positive comments that have been posted regarding Harlem’s newest supermarket! It appears unanimous that most readers really like the supermarket.  I know I do!

The wait is over! Best Yet Market has opened its doors in Harlem on Frederick Douglass Blvd. between 118th and 119th Street. They opened up officially on February 4th. I went to take a quick look at the place today and from what I saw…the place is very nice! It has two levels so it is spacious. You almost feel like your grocery shopping in the suburbs.

From the looks and feel of the place, I will more than likely enjoy shopping at Best Yet in Harlem. It is not far from the B and the C subway line on 116th Street. The prices did not appear to be that much different from C Town or Central Market. They have a sizable coffee bar that will compete with you know who right next door? And Best Yet will have several cold and hot food bars, which is perfect for us Harlemites who are on the go and want more food options close to home.

If you have checked out Best Yet in Harlem, tell us what you think so far!

CITARELLA

By Harlemista

The Citarella on 125th street is a strange oasis almost hidden amongst the throng of a major thoroughfare. Upon entering from the chaotic street, it has a cool, calm suburban vibe. No rushing here. Even though it’s small, there’s always room to push your cart and browse. This branch of the venerable gourmet grocery chain is 3 years old this week, and considering that the very first Citarella opened in 1912 on Broadway and 164th, I guess Harlem is it’s rightful home.

While it is more expensive and has much less variety than Fairway, on the other hand, it is much closer to my apartment and much easier to access and navigate, so I’m always popping in for a nice cheese or prosciutto or filet of fresh fish.

Weekday or weekend it never seems to be incredibly busy so I’m not sure how it sustains itself (Citarella owns the entire buiding so that may help). And if the upscale grocery gods ever grant us a Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods or Garden of Eden in SoHa 118, I don’t know what the future of this Citarella would be. But for now I’m glad it’s here and encourage everyone to check it out.
