VINATERIA – Opening Soon on Restaurant Row in Harlem


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.

Selling New York – Features Harlem Yet Once Again On HGTV Tonight!

Screen Shot 2013-02-07 at 3.39.08 AM

A friend to our blog let us know that an episode of “Selling New York” will air tonight on the HGTV channel with many Harlem businesses represented.

From what I am told, you can expect to see on this particular episode the very popular 5 and Diamond Restaurant on Frederick Douglass Boulevard, Cedric French Bistro located on 119th Street, and Harlem’s famous Make my Cake on 116th Street.

Here is a clip from an episode of SELLING NEW YORK.

Already a fan of HGTV’s “Selling New York”, “House Hunters” and “House Hunters International” we are especially looking forward to seeing “our Harlem” represented on this new episode of Selling New York.  FYI, this is the third time Harlem has been represented on Selling New York.  We here at HarlemCondoLife are not at all surprised to see more attention coming to Harlem.

Make sure to tune in tonight  to “Selling New York” on HGTV at 6:30pm.
