Maria's Cafe is leaving the East Village for West Harlem.
We recently heard that Maria’s Cafe was leaving her sliver of a food stand on East Third Street and Avenue C… Our source said that she would be subleasing space from a restaurant on Broadway around East 10th Street… We had it wrong. Well, the Broadway part is correct … however, it’s Broadway and 131st Street in West Harlem.
As we understand it, there just wasn’t enough business anymore on this corner, where nearby storefronts have been boarded up … the building on the corner is in disrepair, and will eventually be demolished… Word is the buildings from 26 Avenue C to the corner will eventually be razed for housing of some sort…
Plans were filed with the city in July 2005 for a new 6-floor residential building here … The city disapproved the plans in May 2006, and nothing more happened with the project.
Custom Fuel Pizza, the Washington DC based pizza joint whose motto is “build your own fuel pizza,” is heading north to Harlem with their expansion plans. Custom Fuel has two places in DC already. Harlem will be its third at 123rd Street and Frederick Douglass Blvd. Custom Fuel plans on opening January 27 in Harlem. Stay tuned!

How many more dining places will open on Frederick Douglass Blvd in Harlem, the area between 110th and 125th Street dubbed restaurant row by HarlemGal? Well, apparently one, or two or three more Harlem businesses will open in this part of Harlem.
115 Restaurant Corp has filed a liquor license for the commercial space right across from Made En Harlem, which we’ve learned from DNAinfo will be a taqueria place. 115 Restaurant Corp will be located on the southeast corner of 115th and FDB. It’s in the building where apartments are renting for around $4k a month.
The only info we can find at the moment on 115 Restaurant Corp is the name is registered to someone who lives in Harlem. That’s all we know. As soon as we know more, we will pass along the info! And if you have any insight, feel free to chime in!
And Jeff Mays from DNAinfo reported recently that The Chipped Cup and Lenox Coffee will be expanding to Harlem’s restaurant row with The Mess Hall and Bearded Lady Espresso. These Harlem businesses will open near 118th and FDB!
So the answer is yes! More places can and are opening on FDB between 110th and 125th Street. However, it’s starting to get crowded out there!
