For the last couple of years (let’s say three, which isn’t that long), there have been a number of new cafes, restaurants, and bars that have opened up along Frederick Douglass Blvd between 111th and 119th Street. If our memory serves correctly, first it was Society Cafe Lounge. Soon followed Melba’s. After that we believe it was Zoma, Tribal Spears Gallery and Cafe, Nectar Wine Bar and Cafe 2112. Recently, 67 Orange opened, which we hear their Grand Opening is December 5. And now, Svntn Below, which according to Uptown Flavor is open for business!
We like that all these new places have opened up and are very excited that our community continues to grow in the dining/bar/lounges sector!
To answer the question posed, with about eight new places in less than three years opening, this blogger predicts FDB is on track to become the restaurant row of Harlem!
If we left out a new business, please tell us!
