Their website is not quite launched thepark112.com but things are looking ambitious for The Park 112 the last couple of days after taking this new photo of their interior. We haven’t posted much about this “coming soon” business on FDB/8th Ave but we have been following the postings of our fellow bloggers and the media. According to Harlem Bespoke and others, The Park 112 was originally set to open in Spring of 2013. As this photo (above) shows the paper is now removed from the windows and finishing touches are looking more advanced. We will continue to monitor their progress and keep you posted on opening dates as soon as we find out more. With neighbors like Zoma, 67 Orange Street & The 5 and Diamond this new Champagne Bar & Restaurant will be in great company on Harlem Restaurant Row.

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.

We first blogged a month ago about a new Indian restaurant coming to FDB in Harlem. The owner reached out to us yesterday and it appears they will be opening as soon as the week of May 29th. Next week! Exact day yet to be determined depending on the completion of their construction, but they are hoping for Wednesday.
Maharaja Palace also located on the East Side on Madison Avenue, will offer a large selection of classic Indian dishes. For all of you vegetarians out there they also offer a large selection of vegetarian dishes. Reasonably priced for the standards with the priciest items on the menu their Tandori specialties which is normally the case with Indian restaurants. Here is a peek at their Tandori Specialties
They are located in the old Questans space on Frederick Douglass Boulevard (westside of the ave.) between 114th and 115th Streets. With Jado Sushi across the street, Melbas on the adjacent corner, Frederick Bistro Cafe, Harlem Food Bar and Bier International less than a block away, Maharaja Palace will now add a much needed Indian restaurant into the mix. Stay tuned for more information, photos and our new menu review from HarlemCondoLife.com next week after their grand opening.
NOTE: They will start their home delivery service the day of opening, scheduled for May 29th.

Wall of Fame
We finally have a good diner on Lenox in Harlem. This afternoon we attended the soft opening at Harlem Shake and enjoyed exactly what you would expect, shakes and burgers. Very pleasantly pleased by the retro fifties decor (by Dennis Decker) right down to the order-and-pick-up diner style format. The official opening will be held in 2 days on Thursday, May 16th. They are waiting on their license for outdoor seating as well which will expand the diner for the summer months.
Her eyes follow you
The shakes are delicious! We recommend the Red Velvet Shake. Our favorite burger of the three that we sampled was the “Hot Mess” spicy, messy and everything good. The fries were good. Nice and piping hot, skin on the potato and just the right amount of salt.
We predict many future busy nights here as they are set in the perfect location on the South/West corner of 124th street and Lenox Avenue.
They have added some very cool touches such as the Wall of Fame (above) which consists of a large collage of celebrities from Bill Clinton to Cassandra Wilson who have autographed their head shots on the wall. We predict this will soon become a Harlem Hot Spot for local Harlemites as well as tour busses and the Sunday brunch crowd passing through and taking pictures of Harlem Shake. While we were there, already a group of kids came in and asked if they could take a picture inside the place. With it’s retro vibe, even though it is brand new we had the feeling that it had been there for years. Also they serve wine and beer for those that want drinks with their fries. The music playing was a little hip hop, a touch of rap and some R&B and great soul classics. Perfect.
Thank you Jelena, for your hospitality today. Congratulations to the whole crew and welcome to the neighborhood!
Fantastic design by Dennis Decker. Well done.
*They will be open from 11am to 11pm weekdays and weekends they will be open until 2am.
Vintage jet magazine covers drape the bathroom walls. Fantastic!
