Settepani in Harlem confirms it will open Settepani Brick Oven

Back in October 2010, we had heard that Harlem’s Settepani Italian Restaurant, located at 196 Lenox Avenue, was opening up a pizza place. We now have confirmation via DNAInfo that Settepani is in fact opening up Settepani Brick Oven a block away (West 119th and Lenox Ave) from their flagship restaurant. The article states the owners are opening up the pizza place as “an effort to continue the growth on Lenox Ave.” Leah Abraham states that Settepani Brick Oven will also bake breads and make their own gelato! Yummy! I could go for that!

If you recall the first Settepani offered baked goods prior to their renovation a few years ago, along with deserts. Looks like Settepani is returning back to its core product and ambiance. Good for them! Now let’s wait to hear when Settepani Brick Oven in Harlem opens. Should be soon given they confirmed they received their liquor license!



Harlem condo receives FHA approval, Park Central taking calls

There seems to be  plenty of condo activity happening along our favorite boulevard in Harlem, i.e. Frederick Douglass Blvd!

We received notice, along with every other site, that 2280 FDB, a new residential development in Harlem, has been FHA approved. Yeah!  Good for them.

Then as you walk south, you will see a new condo being built right on the intersection of West 121st Street and St. Nicholas and FDB (triangle intersection). This space is now getting dressed with glass.

And then a few more blocks down, you will see that the netting has come down on the Park Central Condo and a phone number is posted for those that want to inquire.

Those few blocks along FDB from 119th to 123rd are shaping up to be very nice. And of course, those that decide to move to this area of Harlem are expected to have a new cafe close by called Triangle Cafe. Nice!

If you are looking to practice that downward facing dog or warrior pose right here in Harlem, well look no further. Harlem Yoga Studio has arrived. It’s just three weeks old. They have a big open space and are already offering various levels of yoga classes at different times throughout the week. If you’re interested in a yoga practice close to home, I recommend visiting this studio. It’s located on the Northwest corner of 119th Street and Lenox Avenue and the first class is free until November 1, 2009.


I went to the Yoga I/II class with Erica over the weekend and enjoyed it very much. The teacher was well-versed in yoga and extremely polite. The studio is spacious and the location is ideal. It is centrally located where you don’t have to trek far down to the West or East side of upper Manhattan to get to a yoga class. Plus it is right by the 2/3 train to 116th Street! So if you are looking for a yoga studio in Central Harlem, look no more! Namaste!
