As I was walking home this evening, I noticed this attractive marquis on the southwest corner of 116th and Frederick Douglass Blvd. Silvana will be a “cafe boutique” featuring Middle Eastern food, international goods, and live music. Their website is not up yet but rumor has it that this latest addition to Frederick Douglass’ restaurant row is scheduled to open later this month.
Today’s Motto From Harlem “LOVE”
on the window of “Frederick Cafe Bistro“ on restaurant row. Located on the corner of Frederick Douglass Boulevard and 114th Street.
Stop in for a hot cup of coffee and try their pastries, paninis and salads. The comfortable setting is a great spot to work on your laptop. Next time you are passing by drop in and check out Frederick Cafe Bistro. (breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee, pastries)
Savann is an outpost of a popular Upper West Side Turkish restaurant that closed this past summer. A New York Times review said : “When Savann opened a few years ago, it was like a dream come true for Upper West Siders who had yearned for a simple, reasonably priced restaurant that served not-so-simple contemporary bistro food. Savann was just such a place, with ambitious yet delicious dishes like roasted pumpkin soup with olive oil, perfectly cooked wild mushroom risotto, and grilled duck breast with polenta…”
Cem Yildiz, Manager of Savann told mns.com in December: “The owner, Galip Ozbek, and I have lived in Harlem since 2007, and have enjoyed watching the local community flourish…We’re excited to offer Harlemites authentic Mediterranean cuisine.”
Hopefully they can work out these issues and open soon because we can’t wait!!
