Recently, this blog mentioned a sushi place is coming to Frederick Douglass Blvd. Dragon Sushi is open as of November 16. We walked by and the sign said “open.” Stop by Dragon Sushi! They are at the near corner of 112th and FDB!
Remember 5 and Diamond or RDV restaurants and where they were located in Harlem? That commercial space will now be used for a place called Dragon Sushi!
Dragon Sushi, located at 2072 Frederick Douglass Blvd., plans to offer a full menu of sushi and sashimi! Hopefully this month according to the owner! Signage is almost up ! So the opening could be on track!
Dragon Sushi will be the second sushi place to open on Harlem’s restaurant row! The first attempt was by Jade Sushi, two blocks north, which is now Bean and Barley.
On Halloween this year, many Harlem restaurants on Frederick Douglass Blvd handed out lots of candy to kids, even new businesses were prepared, such as Root Juicery of Harlem! (FYI. I posted about this place months back and either incorrectly named it or there was a change in ownership.) We learned over the weekend that this new cold press, juice joint is now open for business!
Stop by Root at 2073 FDB for a smoothie, juice or a bowl! They have a wonderful menu to start! Here’s their IG account to follow!
New York City is officially open! I’ve been waiting to share this picture for quite some time due to covid19 and the recent Black Lives Matter movement. Apparently, there is going to be a new restaurant opening on Harlem‘s restaurant row called Bixi. It’s going to be Asian cuisine I believe and it will be managed and operated by the same individuals who run Lido Italian Restaurant on the corner of 117th and Frederick Douglass Boulevard. That’s all the info I have right now. I’m sure more details will arise soon!
There are interesting finds in Harlem. They are constantly popping up every where and its hard to keep track. But here’s a new spot you may want to check out. It’s called Lyn-Genet’s Kitchen located in the Hamilton Heights area of Harlem. I believe its been open for about a month. It serves mainly vegetarian food, along with a few slight meat dishes. Here’s the menu.
The restaurant is backed by its namesake, Lyn-Genet Recitas, whose name I came across years ago when I would blog about 5 and Diamond. Remember them? According to Recitas Instagram account, she is a NY Times bestselling author of The Metabolism Plan.
So if you’re looking for a new place to dine at try Lyn-Genet’s Kitchen. It’s located on Broadway between 141 and 142 Street in Harlem. If you try it out, come back here and let us know what you think of the place.
As one door closes another opens…and that’s what’s happening at 2080 Frederick Douglass Blvd in Harlem! Paint’n Pour is moving into the space where The Park 112 Restaurant use to be! The signage is up!
According to their Facebook page, Paint’n Pour was located at 79 Madison Avenue, where one could actually paint “with the help of an open bar.” Paint’n Pours instagram account states they’re moving uptown to Central Harlem and the grand opening is coming soon!
I hope the painting stays indoors along with the cocktails. If my kids see adults painting outside, they’ll want to join in!
Burgers will not be cooking up in the space next to Chocolate Restaurant in Harlem. It will be Ganache Coffee! The signage is up in the commercial space between 119th and 120th Street on Frederick Douglass Blvd.
I guess Leon Ellis, the owner of practically everything on that particular block, changed his mind and decided to focus on coffee products instead-at least that’s what the signs are indicating!
One of the greatest actors on the planet was hanging out on Harlem's Restaurant Row last night, July 27.

Pretty awesome, don't ya think?
Congrats goes out to Vinatería in Harlem! They were recently named one of the Best Italian Restaurants in New York City by The Financial Times, an international London-based publication. The FT says Vinatería in Harlem “is a spot you can as easily drop into for a flatbread pizza or charcuterie as for a full meal of grilled octopus with rocket and a confit of pimento potatoes or the wonderful tagliatelle with pork ragù and black cabbage.”
Vinatería is located at 2211 Frederick Douglass Blvd at 119th Street. For reservations, call 212-662-8462.
