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!
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!
By HarlemGuy One of my favorite pastimes while traveling is looking for references to Harlem.
So I was pleasantly surprised to see the following roadside sign while driving back from a recent trip to Amaganset in the Hamptons.
Curious, I ran in to confirm what I suspected. As many of you may know we have a Levain Bakery right here in Harlem’s Gold Coast / Restaurant row, on the West Side of Frederick Douglass Boulevard, between 116th and 117th. A few steps away from Harlem Tavern, Lido, and a few blocks away from Melba’s, Society, Five & Diamond, Bier International and Zoma, to name just a few.
That being said I took the opportunity to stop by, spend a moment with one of the owners and the staff who were of course suitably dressed. I particularly loved the Harlem 10026 T-shirt!
I love that we have a little piece of the Hamptons in Harlem. Better yet, I love that there’s a little bit of Harlem in the Hamptons.
This is made all the sweeter (no pun intended) when you consider that Levain bakery is also one of Oprah’s favorites.
And of course my favorite cookie is what else but Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip.
