Sixteen health care focussed startups have settled inside the new Harlem Biospace, on W. 127th St.
The Bloomberg administration contributed $626,000 and partnered with Columbia University biomedical engineering professor Sam Sia for the balance of the funding.
Companies include an allergy-testing company, which uses a simple cheek swab to analyze a sneeze; a pharmaceutical drug maker that’s trying to compel cancer cells to “commit suicide,” and inventors developing an MRI-styled device for small animals, Invivo Analytics, which uses imaging to study how diseases ravage mice during pharmaceutical testing.
The facility includes access to a laboratory outfitted with advanced equipment to grow cells, test tissue and analyze toxins; free legal advice from biotech law firm Wilmer Hale; access to topnotch tools and mentors.

I had the pleasure of dining at Maison Harlem this weekend. It’s easily a top 5 local favorite. The crowd is hip. The food is delicious, plentiful and well priced. The staff is nice, attentive and knowledgeable. I loved the fact that I was able to speak to the staff and the the owner in both French or English as the mood dictated. This was my third visit to Maison and each time Samuel Thiam (one of the owners and the evening’s host) has greeted us graciously. We were accompanied by a large group including visiting friends from out of town. We enjoyed a variety of appetizers, dinner and desert. See their full menu here MAISON. I recommend the seasonal oysters, steak tartare, french onion soup or the fried calamari for starters. For entrees the wild mushroom risotto with grilled seafood is very good. My friend ordered it and said that this is what she came back for. The grilled new york shell steak is delicious with either red wine or peppercorn sauce. Other popular dishes that stood out were the grilled salmon, the duck leg confit and the daurade sauce vierge (royal dorade fish with sauce vierge, grilled asparagus & new potatoes). Ask for their specials and deserts. We loved the creme brûlée and lava cake.

I’m told from friends that the burgers are excellent but I’ve not been their for brunch or lunch yet. I was happy to see that on the lunch menu they offer croque monsieur which is a childhood favorite of mine.
Maison takes reservations (recommended) for parties of four and higher. Each time I have been there the bar has been crowded – whether it be middle of the week or on the weekend. This is impressive and shows that by word of mouth and reputation Maison Harlem is a success.
