Harlem’s Yatenga Bistro remodels kitchen and menu, view new menu

Did anyone notice that Yatenga French Bistro in Harlem was closed recently? Apparently, they were. The owners of Yatenga and now Silvana tell HarlemGal Inc that Yatenga’s kitchen was closed for about a week for remodeling and redesigning of their new menu! No worries. Yatenga in Harlem has reopened and we have their new menu. Take a look! Available no more are the classical French bistro items, but “more Mediterranean influences from Greece, Spain, France, Morocco, Italy and more!”

Celebrities stop by Silvana Harlem July 4, David Schwimmer of Friends and Sahr Ngaujah of Fela!

If you were hanging out at Silvana in Harlem this past Thursday July 4, you may have seen a well-known TV star, as well as a Broadway star! According to Silvana’s Facebook page, Actor David Schwimmer, known for his TV role in Friends, and Sahr Ngaujah, known for starring in Fela! The Musical, were both hanging out at Silvana Harlem on the same night. There is no mention on Facebook if the two celebrities went together or just happened to be there on the same night. All Silvana posted was a photo of Schwimmer saying these two were present. Either way, very cool for Silvana.

If you haven’t stopped by Silvana, it’s now open for business. Stop on by. It is located on 116th Street between Frederick Douglass Blvd and Manhattan Avenue.

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…
