Celebrity chef, restaurateur and author Marcus Samuelsson has joined ABC’s cooking competition show The Taste as its newest mentor.

Chef Samuelsson joins chef and television personality Anthony Bourdain, British food star Nigella Lawson and chef and author Ludo Lefebvre as they begin production on the show’s second season.

The Taste is an exhilarating two-hour cooking competition program that puts 16 culinary competitors — from professional chefs to home cooks alike — into a pressure cooker of a kitchen where one blind spoonful of their culinary creations are served to four of the world’s most notable chefs and food experts to determine who stays and who is eliminated from the competition.

“Marcus is a world-renowned chef with an infectious passion for food,” said Executive Producer Chris Coelen. “He’s a perfect fit to work with and compete against Anthony, Nigella and Ludo on Season Two of The Taste.”“I am thrilled to be joining The Taste,” said Chef Samuelsson. “I’m looking forward to working alongside such an esteemed group of culinary figures and discovering new talents.”

Urban Electric Power is a Harlem based battery startup located 10 blocks from City College and which has received funding from the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Energy (ARPA–E).

The company hopes to turn the familiar alkaline battery into a cheap way to store the electricity from massive wind farms.

What sets Urban Electric apart from other similarly focussed startups is the safety of the underlying materials, which are not caustic, volatile or otherwise dangerous.  

Urban Electric and other like startups funded by ARPA-E a trying to build a big battery costing less than $100 per kilowatt-hour of storage which would lower the cost of stored making it more available.  Says Urban Electric:  “Storage gives you massive flexibility,” Moniz notes, adding that it can help improve reliability and resilience as well by providing backup power. “The issue has been the cost.”

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)

The Real Deal reports increased activity Harlem at building including The Douglass, Windows on 123, the Livmor and Parc StandardLast.

Price cuts on the units in those buildings have resulted in some units selling for less than $500 per square foot.

t, the 72-unit Livmor, the 28-unit Parc Standard and the 38-unit Douglass, all on Frederick Douglass Boulevard, are sold out.   The 73-unit co-op 88 Morningside is 71 percent sold.  The 86-unit Gateway is 90 percent sold. Windows on 123 is on its second phase of sales.

A few years ago, in 2008 HarlemGuy at a blog meeting for HarlemCondoLife with 6 bloggers present at the meeting in front of witnesses, came up with and coined Frederick Douglass Boulevard from 110 to 125th Street as “Harlem Restaurant Row“.  Which since has become a signature phrase credited to Harlem Condo Life.
