Screen Shot 2013-08-31 at 1.56.24 PM

After the huge success of Harlem Tavern on Frederick Douglass Boulevard in Central Harlem, the owners have opened their latest location Heights Tavern in Washington Heights.  We have been waiting with anticipation for their new location to open and it finally did this past Thursday.  HarlemCondoLife will stop by and visit soon and look forward to checking it out with a review.  If it is anything like their Harlem Restaurant Row location on FDB they should do great.  Washington Heights has a lot of buzz lately and is a neighborhood to keep an eye on with recent businesses that have opened as well as restaurants coming soon.

Check out HEIGHTS TAVERN at 3910 Broadway in Washington Heights telephone #(619)501-3455.  Stay tuned for our follow up post and review.
