I was at Chocolat recently enjoying their happy hour (more on that later) and while there I inquired about the status of Honeycomb Burgers, located on Frederick Douglass Blvd between 119th and 120th Street. The word is they are hoping to open the place by the end of summer. Harlemites can hopefully expect a new burger joint around August or mid September. We all know the drill when it comes to opening these establishments. Deadlines are very fluid. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the hamburger prices will be reasonably priced at Honeycomb Burgers in Harlem!
Leon Ellis, the owner of Moca and Chocolat, owns Honeycomb Burgers. He is clearly expanding his restaurant business in Harlem and will soon dominate this particular block in Harlem once his third business opens. Good for Leon and best wishes for continued success! Can’t wait to have a burger there!

The block on Frederick Douglass Blvd between 119th and 120th appears to be filling up with places to dine pushing this part of Harlem along as restaurant row. First there was Moca, which was really the pioneer in dining in that specific space, then Chocolat, followed by Bad Horse Pizza and now we are getting a burger joint called Honeycomb Burgers. Could this be the half answer to our diner prayers? Several readers here on HCL have been pleading to the blog universe asking for diner in Harlem! Maybe this is partially it? Also, the Cupcake Suite Cupcakery has been trying to open in that block as well, but got derailed due to investor challenges.
As for who is behind Honeycomb Burgers, we are hearing chatter that a local/seasoned restaurateur is involved. Hmmm… We’ll wait until the burger is ready before we comment further!
