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.

VH1’s Love & Hip Hop filming at Harlem Food Bar tonight, Jan 15

Walking along Frederick Douglass Blvd in Harlem tonight, I noticed a bunch of TV cameras inside and outside Harlem Food Bar, which is on FDB between 113th and 114th Street. This is the scoop. VH1 is at Harlem Food Bar this evening taping the Love & Hip Hop reality show.

VH1 was also at Harlem Food Bar not too long ago filming Black Ink Crew – not to mention Cedric French Bistro as well.

Harlem is even more popular with the entertainment industry. Every time you turn, the film and TV industry is in our Harlem backyard filming/taping something. Pretty cool.

As for tonight, Harlem Food Bar is open to the public, not just to the reality show, so stop on by order some food and have a drink! Cheers!

Where to watch 2012 Presidential Debates in Harlem?


The first political boxing match, aka Presidential Debates, is happening this Wednesday, October 3, and so far two establishments have reached out to HarlemGal Inc. announcing they will be showing the 2012 Presidential Debates on the big screen at their establishments.

The Harlem4Obama organization will be hosting a viewing party at the Corner Social located on 126th Street and Lenox Avenue. So if you want to watch President Obama verbally take down Gordon Gekko, aka Mitt Romney, head to the Corner Social!

Over on Frederick Douglass Blvd., Harlem Food Bar, one of the new dining establishments on Harlem’s restaurant row, will be showing all three debates this month at their 2100 FDB location, starting this Wednesday, Oct. 3rd at 9 pm. And Harlem Food Bar will also be having an Election night party. So mark your calendar for November 6.

I have a feeling more Harlem dining establishments will host Presidential Debate viewing parties. If you’re aware of more viewing parties happening in Harlem, please chime in!

Putting the boxing terminology aside and name calling, this is a serious matter. HarlemGal Inc. encourages all Harlemites, no matter which political party affiliation, to watch all the 2012 Presidential Debates. And more importantly, do not forget to get out and vote on November 6, 2012. See you at the polls!

Harlem Food Bar adds sidewalk seating

20120618-080434.jpg
If you were walking along Frederick Douglass Blvd. in Harlem this past weekend, you may have noticed that Harlem’s newest eatery, Harlem Food Bar, located on FDB between 113th and 114th Street, opened up its outdoor seating space. Both Saturday and Sunday, patron’s gladly filled those seats from what I witnessed. Probably because the weather was descent and the food is good and reasonably priced.

Also from the photo above, it looks like HFB seating space could come out on the sidewalk a little farther. See the white chalk mark to the left? It appears that HFB was a bit modest with setting out their seats.

By the way, have you dined at HFB yet? If so, tell us what you think. To read more about Harlem Food Bar, click here or check out their Facebook page.

Take a look at Harlem Food Bar’s drink and food menu

Harlem Food Bar is officially opening this evening (May 25), it’s a soft launch, and HarlemGal has the menus. Take a look! The most expensive items are $18 and that’s for steak or salmon. The shared plates run from $5 to $8.

As for drinks, prices will start at $7 a glass and will range to $24 for a carafe of wine. The most expensive drink item is French sparkling champagne for $85.

Overall, the menu is inexpensive, which adds to the price point diversity along restaurant row, i.e. Frederick Douglass Blvd. All the items are offered at modest rates and my bet is Harlemites are going to respond well!
