Silvana Harlem begins soft launch June 20, Israeli restaurant to open to public days later

Did you see the nice article about Silvana Harlem in the Village Voice yesterday? It had plenty of good details, like where the name Silvana comes from and whose running the kitchen, etc. The article also confirms what this blog’s known all along, Silvana Harlem at 116th Street and Frederick Douglass Blvd is opening soon.

HarlemGal Inc now has confirmation from the owners of Silvana, who also own The Shrine and Yatenga French Bistro in Harlem, that Silvana Harlem will be starting their soft launch this coming Thursday, June 20 and as always, its by invite only. Then a few days later, like that Monday, they will open to the public.

Can’t wait to check this place out. This blogger enjoys both The Shrine and eating at Yatenga. The Ouedraogo’s know quality and service in the restaurant business. I am confident they will deliver the same level of good food and service as they have done in the past in Harlem. Congrats to them and their beautiful family on their expansion efforts in Harlem.

UPDATE: Silvana Harlem plans to have their opening night for the public Friday, June 21st and we will be open the next day on Saturday at 4 pm for dinner down stairs!

Is Silvana Harlem opening soon?

HarlemGal Inc has not received confirmation from the owners…yet on when Silvana in Harlem, the new Israeli restaurant, will open. However, we are guessing Silvana’s opening day might possibly be near. A reader recently left message on this blog announcing that Uptown Poetry Nights will happen on July 3 at the “all new Silvana Lounge” on 116th Street and Frederick Douglass Blvd. If that is in fact true that a poetry event is being held on July 3 at Silvana, wouldn’t the entire venue be open by then or would they just open part of the restaurant for this event? Our guess, Silvana in Harlem will be opening up very soon. Why would one start to promote events unless they knew when they were opening? Stay tuned…

A long time reader of this blog captured the first photo of signage for Silvana, the Harlem restaurant that will be located on 116th Street and FDB, and sent it in to HarlemGal Inc for all of us to view. A big thank you to the reader!

As HarlemGal first told you, Silvana is a restaurant that the owners of Yatenga French Bistro will be opening soon. The first floor of Silvana will be a cafe and boutique. The Harlem restaurant will sell local, domestic and international home decor, accessories gifts and more. Wine and beer will be served as well. The restaurant and bar will actually be located in the lower level and will have acoustic live music. Silvana will serve Israeli food, such as shawarma, falafel and other vegetarian dishes.
