Vinateria Coming Along In Harlem

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!
