My kids and I were at Harlem Eat Up today. While strolling around, literally in our Bugaboo, we learned today that Whole Foods Market is opening up their Harlem store July 21, 2017. The two nice gentlemen working their booth informed us when we asked. However, there was no need to ask. There was a sign to the left of them that announced the date! See pic below.
I wonder whose going to check out the new Whole Foods uptown when it opens? I’m curious to see if they plan on offering the same kind of merchandise/products as a downtown store. We will soon find out!
The store will be located at 125th Street and Lenox Avenue! Right there by the 2/3 subway line!

Harlem villagers no longer have to turn to downtown to dine at a farm-to-table restaurant. Harlem dining patrons can now experience farm-to-table at Clay, located on the corner of 123rd Street and Manhattan Avenue.
What does farm-to-table mean? According to Clay Restaurant, it means “they source all of their produce, meats and fish from small, local suppliers. Nothing is mass-produced or served out of season. Wines and spirits also come from small producers, both seasoned veterans and ground-breaking upstarts alike, who care about their terrain and couple minimal intervention with maximum innovation.”
The New American restaurant opened up on the Harlem corner six weeks ago and is ready to serve locals (or anyone that walks in) with dinner and brunch on the weekends.
And if you’re curious as to where exactly Clay is sourcing, the list is posted on their website.

Another Harlem blog posted a question yesterday to their site asking: Has Melba’s on 114th Street and Frederick Douglass Blvd shuttered? As of this evening, HarlemGal has the the answer. It’s no!
This blog walked by there this evening and all the lights were on and people were inside!
What prompted the questions around the status of Melba Wilson’s ten year old restaurant on Harlem’s restaurant row is that someone snapped a photo of that infamous sticker from the City slapped on the restaurant’s grey metal rolling gate. Ouch!
Hopefully, going forward, this type of uncertainty about whether Melba’s restaurant is opened or closed is a thing of the past. Fingers are crossed!
