Awesome Actor Denzel Washington dines in Harlem at The Park 112

Golden Globe, Tony, Academy Award Actor Denzel Washington decided to head uptown this past weekend for some good grub in Harlem. Where did he go? To Harlem restaurant row’s The Park 112. Not a bad choice, Denzel! We hear he ordered the Brick Chicken and Branzino dish, but no drinks! Hey, when you’re on Broadway performing in Raisin in the Sun, ya gotta eat and drink well.

Let’s not forget that Denzel Washington is familiar with the streets of Harlem. A few years back, he was in Central Harlem filming American Gangster.

Other celebs, models and well-known athletes have made their way up to Harlem to The Park 112 as well, such as Kobe Bryant, Jessica White, and Mekhai Phifer of ER. Again, don’t take our word. Go to their Instagram account! All the evidence is there!

The  owner of the upcoming The Park 112 in Harlem, prior name is The Park Wine Bar, recently spoke with HarlemGal Inc about their plans to open one of the first full service wine bars on Harlem’s restaurant row, aka Frederick Douglass Blvd. Lewis Tucker says they are planing to open The Park 112, which will be located on FDB between 112th and 113th Street, the second week of August, if all goes well with permits, etc from the City.

What will The Park 112 be like in comparison to what’s currently being offered in Harlem? When asked who is his competition, Tucker politely says “don’t compare me to another establishment. All of us have something to offer.” “The Park 112 in Harlem will be upscale,” says Tucker. “If Harlemites like places, such as Stanton Social, Asia de Cuba or the Supper Club from downtown, then that’s what The Park 112 in Harlem will offer in terms of food, service and ambiance.”

The Park 112 will be Tucker’s first establishment to open ever. He’s from The Bronx. However, he chose Harlem for the obvious reason, it is happening in Harlem right now. And based on his well-connected background, which he shared, he will have no problem drawing in a crowd at The Park 112 in Harlem.

The Park Wine Bar in Harlem is coming together, construction photos released




Back in June 2012, HarlemGal Inc exclusively announced that The Park Restaurant & Wine Bar was coming to Harlem, specifically on Frederick Douglass Blvd. The Park Wine Bar aims to be Harlem’s first and only self-serve wine bar on restaurant row. According to recently released photos by the upcoming Harlem business, that goal is moving toward reality. The floor has been set and so has the structure of the bar. The photos also gives the appearance that this drinking and dining establishment will be spacious-similar to Harlem Tavern and Corner Social. Those Harlem places are large and can hold a lot of patrons. Looks like The Park Wine Bar in Harlem plans to do the same.
