Looks like very soon and hopefully any day now Vinateria will be opening their door to New York in Harlem. After speaking with one of the owners recently about what we can expect from them, it remains pretty much the same as what we posted a few months back (see previous post) Vinateria Coming Along In Harlem. Gustavo Lopez will be developing Vinateria’s menu and daily specials, and Gabriela Davogustto will be developing their wine and beverage program.
The concept behind Vinateria is expected to be a full food and wine offerings with an Italian/global influence. Sounds good to me. A corner location for a new restaurant is always a plus , Melba’s, Lido, Chocolàt, Maison Harlem and now soon Vinateria. Stay tuned for our menu review and opening announcements coming soon.
Find them on their Facebook page for updates and additional information.

More improvements seem to be happening at the site of the new wine bar/kitchen Vinateria on 119th and Frederick Douglass Boulevard. Last week crews were spotted painting the building front black.
The proprietor, Mrs. Yvette Leeper-Bueno teamed up with Gabriela and Gustavo Lopez who worked at downtown hotspots Son Cubano, Boqueria, Lupa and Wallse, amongst others. Gustavo Lopez will be developing Vinateria’s menu and daily specials, and Gabriela Davogustto will be developing their wine and beverage program. Apparently they looked for a year and a half for the right space in Harlem, and had a few different places under negotiation that fell through, including underneath the Gateway Towers. In this address, they have now expanded their concept from just a winebar to a full food and wine offerings with an Italian/global influence.
Their Facebook has been up since summertime but no new info. Other wine- oriented places like Nectar and Auberge Laurent haven’t fared so well in this area but perhaps now is the time. We can’t wait for this to open!
We have just received the new date for the dinner and lecture / conversation for The Harlem Pearl to be held at The 5 and Diamond Restaurant. It will be on October 16th. Please see the original information below and don’t forget to make a reservation. See you there.

The 5 and Diamond Restaurant

Attendees who wish to purchase the 4 Day Detox from The Harlem Pearl will also receive free 4 days of free nutritional support with a Plan nutritionist!
The Lyn-Genet Plan is not a diet. It is a way of eating that will help you lose weight, reverse the aging process, and fight disease. Through The Plan, you will learn that your weight is nothing more than data and from this data we learn how your body reacts to certain foods. Once you determine your ‘trigger’ foods and learn how to create your own menus through working one-on-one with a nutritionist, you will be able to achieve and maintain your personal health goals.
This is for return and new clients so please spread the word to YOUR friends and family!
Space is limited, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Plan and The 5 and Diamond!
We’re excited to let you know you can purchase days 1-4 of The Lyn-Genet Plan from the soon to be opened Harlem Pearl! Looking for a wonderful restaurant experience? Eduardo Polit, acclaimed executive chef of The 5 and Diamond, is now serving Plan friendly food for lunch and dinner.
I stopped by Harlem Food Bar today and talked with Ernesto, one of the owners of HFB, about their new large awning which had just been installed. Now you can enjoy eating outside comfortably in the shade under their new awning. This will also be handy when the occasional lite rain storm passes by.
Looks really nice and draws your attention even more to Harlem Food Bar. As you can see it is already being put to use.
