Things seem to be coming along for the opening of Barawine neighborhood restaurant on the bright sunny corner of Lenox Ave Malcolm X Boulevard and 120th Street. After leaving the opening of Harlem Shake the other day, we walked 4 blocks down on Lenox to check on the progress of Barawine. Nicely situated on the north east corner of the avenue next to the charming Settepani restaurant. This will add to this section of Lenox Avenue where further up there are a cluster of restaurants Sylvia’s, Les Ambassades, Corner Social, Red Rooster, Cove Lounge, Chez Lucienne and the new Harlem Shake.
The signage which use to read coming soon Winter 2013 now says Spring 2013. I predict soon it will read Summer 2013 as they appear to be a few weeks away from their opening day. Word on the street (and from one of the workman who will remain nameless) said they were waiting on their liquer license and clearance for outdoor seating. We are hopeful for this new addition to the neighborhood in Harlem. Stay tuned for further information and their official opening date.

Back in October 2010, we had heard that Harlem’s Settepani Italian Restaurant, located at 196 Lenox Avenue, was opening up a pizza place. We now have confirmation via DNAInfo that Settepani is in fact opening up Settepani Brick Oven a block away (West 119th and Lenox Ave) from their flagship restaurant. The article states the owners are opening up the pizza place as “an effort to continue the growth on Lenox Ave.” Leah Abraham states that Settepani Brick Oven will also bake breads and make their own gelato.
If you recall the first Settepani offered baked goods prior to their renovation a few years ago, along with deserts. Looks like Settepani is returning back to its core product and ambiance. Good for them! Now let’s wait to hear when Settepani Brick Oven in Harlem opens. Should be soon given they confirmed they received their liquor license.

What a difference a year makes? Let’s reflect! April 11, 2010 Harlem is poorly ranked by Nate Silver for New York Magazine’s Neighborhood Issue. Does anyone remember this article? I certainly do. That article inspired me to write Top ten reason why Harlem is one of the best neighborhoods to live in. Let’s fast forward to today. Harlem and several local establishments are currently featured bright and big this week in a series of articles under the banner The Everything Guide to Harlem in NY Mag. It’s a creme-de-la-creme of articles featuring restaurants, markets, shops and bars in Harlem. My favorite article is The New New Harlem, which is sort of a “Whose In and Whose Out.” In my view, featuring several establishments in this type of format demonstrates the caliber and variety of places located in Harlem. Plus in order to pit two businesses against each other, there has to be plenty of selection. Clearly, Harlem has reached that point.
In closing, I will use soccer terms to describe this Harlem milestone. This article is another G-O-A-L for Harlem. Remember, we won Curbed Cup 2010 too. More importantly, it recognizes (again) what most of us have known all along, and now NY Mag too, Harlem is hot! Adelante!
