Notice in Harlem, John Legend plays Red Rooster, beer and wine at Frederick Cafe Bistro

20130822-124717.jpg
Has anyone noticed there’s is a big beer and wine sign hanging at Frederick Cafe Bistro in Harlem? Walk by 114th Street and Frederick Douglass Blvd and you will see it. I guess this means if patrons want more than coffee, they can now have beer and/or wine?

And did anyone notice that John Legend performed in Harlem last night? According to Marcus Samuelsson’s twitter account, he did. Legend apparently gave a private performance at Red Rooster in Harlem. Nice.

Legend has performed in Harlem before. A few years back he played at the Apollo!

Ahh…the things we notice happening in Harlem! It’s endless.

1Forno Pizzeria in Harlem joins the red awning club

20130310-225519.jpg
Most of the Harlem businesses love the color red when it comes to their outdoor awnings with signage, such as Red Rooster Harlem, Harlem Food Bar, Cedric French Bistro, etc. 1Forno Pizzeria at 135 West 116th Street near Lenox Avenue decided to do the same and has installed a big bright red awning with their logo, phone number and address. I walked by the pizza place yesterday (March 10) and noticed the signage. I also noticed in the new awning the Harlem pizza place goes by the name 1Forno Pizzeria, instead of Il Forno.

If you haven’t tried a pie or a slice of pizza from 1Forno on 116th Street, give it a try. I order from them all the time and love that one can create their own toppings from a varied list of toppings! 1Forno also gets good reviews on Yelp. See contact details below.

Harlem’s Marcus Samuelsson upgrades, buys Harlem townhouse on West 120th Street

3494879-3

According to Curbed.com, Celebrity Chef and Harlemite Marcus Samuelsson and Maya, his gorgeous wife, have some new digs in Harlem. They’re moving on up as 3494879-6the saying goes from West 118th Street to West 120th Street. The socialite couple have purchased a townhouse at 30 West 120th Street for the asking price of $2.895 million. Curbed reports that the deed hit public record yesterday, Feb. 8 and the sale closed in late January. The 4,650-square-foot Harlem townhouse includes five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a garden, and a second entrance that allows the garden level to be a separate apartment.

Curbed takes a jab at the kitchen shown in the listing pics saying “it looks little smaller than we’d expect for a professional chef.” Have any of these folks been in his prior home? Some of us have when the Samuelsson’s hosted the Horn of Africa fundraiser. The kitchen in the new Harlem townhouse is twice is big as what they had in the old Harlem apartment on 118th Street. Not sure what Curbed is basing their comments on, but the new kitchen in the townhouse is perfect for a celebrity chef.

Anyhow congrats to Marcus and Maya on their new Harlem home. It’s crystal clear from the recent home purchase that they plan to stay in Harlem for the long-term! Good for them!

She walked onto the stage as if she was already knee-deep in conversation with the attentive audience. With one hand on her piano, and her eyes locked on the audience, Keys was candid and personable. Before playing, “You Don’t Know My Name,” she opened with a story about being in the studio with Kanye West for the track (way before he was “Yeezy”) and the innovative music-maker told Alicia that a…
