FUEL READY TO GO

Walking on Frederick Douglass Boulevard and 123rd yesterday, we noticed that the butcher paper is off the windows of Fuel and it seems almost ready to go.  We can’t wait to try it!

Harlem’s Cantina (Review)

Cantina 1838

Cantina 1838 located at 1838 Adam Clayton Powell has a great happy hour.  The restaurant has a nice size bar, offers good service, food and drinks.  You can’t go wrong with $2.00 tacos and $4.00 beers and margaritas during their happy hour from 4-7 pm.  We had the chicken, fish and pork tacos along with beer and margaritas.

I am looking forward to dinner there next as they have a great menu including short rib burritos and lobster and chipotle tacos to name a few.  If you are looking for a great “Happy Hour” and authentic Mexican food in Harlem you should definitely try it out.  Here is their MENU.

(NEW) City Cafe opens in Harlem

City Cafe is now open on the corner of 125 and Amsterdam.  If I recall the location used to house a famous soul food diner.  From 125th Street to 110th Street all along Amsterdam has a wide range of restaurants such as Kitchenette along with Max Soha.

All of the businesses and restaurants do quite well along this busy strip filled with Columbia University students and faculty.  Kitchenette continues to be one of our favorite breakfast / brunch places here at HarlemCondoLife with incredible breakfast cuisine and delicious baked goods.  Expect a 10 to 30 minute wait on weekends for this popular Harlem restaurant.

Swing by City Cafe, say hello and welcome them.

Lenox Avenue Sidewalks Sizzle on June 18th

Much of Central Harlem‘s new restaurant excitement spotlights Frederick Douglass Boulevard, but beautiful and historic Lenox Avenue has also become quite a culinary epicenter.  And this Tuesday night, eight restaurants on Harlem’s Lenox Avenue will prove that as they serve up local cuisine as part of the “Summer Sizzles On Lenox,” a block party-style event .

“We’ve got some of the widest sidewalks in the city, we’ve got gorgeous architecture, we have a thriving commercial corridor now. It really has become a place to see and be seen,” said Nikoa Evans-Hendricks, an organizer from the group Harlem Park To Park.

Come out and sample the food, drinks, music and hospitality of the other restaurant row. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Sylvia and Herbert Woods Scholarship Endowment Foundation, which is named after the founder of Sylvia’s and her husband.

The event kicks off at 6 p.m. Tuesday. To pre-order tickets, visit summersizzles.eventbrite.com, or buy them the night of the event for $10 at Federal Carver Bank at 75 West 125th Street or Native Restaurant at 161 Lenox Avenue. Bon appetite!
