Vinateria Harlem opens today April 17, take a look inside

20130417-073701.jpg
HarlemGal Inc has confirmation from the owners of Vinateria Harlem that they are in fact opening to the public today, April 17. If you’re interested in checking out this new place located on Harlem’s restaurant row, i.e. 119th Street and Frederick Douglass Blvd., stop on by. They will be serving new American cuisine by Chef Gustavo Lopez.

20130417-073546.jpgI had the opportunity to take a look inside recently via invitation from the owners to view the decor. Vinateria is very lovely and has a comfortable setting. What’s interesting about Vinateria Harlem is that they practically went green with the entire place. Almost every item inside is recycled, such as the dinner chairs & tables, the corner church pews, vintage decanters, and the bodega doors are the original from the prior place. The decorator had cut out aluminum placed over the entry doors to give it a cast iron look.

What I liked the best in decor was the spacious corner seating with the church pews, which you can see to the left when you walk in. It fits a large group and you can look out on to FDB and people watch.

Overall, the place looks fantastic. So stop by Vinateria this evening or over the weekend and tell us what you think of the place. The staff and owners are anxiously awaiting to meet you and be at your service.

Vinateria Harlem not open yet, but it will soon

If you’re wondering like I am when Vinateria Harlem, located at 118th 119th Street and Frederick Douglass Blvd., is opening, it’s not tonight or tomorrow night. I have heard from a very good source that Vinateria will not open to the public more than likely until later in the week. But stay tuned here. As soon as this blog receives confirmation of the exact opening day, we will pass along.

And if you see people inside Vinateria Harlem tonight or tomorrow night or you saw  people inside over the weekend, those are private events happening or also known as practice events. Generally, restaurants do practice runs with friends and family first before they open their doors to the public.
