BESPOKE: GUCCI CONFIRMS LENOX STORE DEBUT

Harlem Bespoke:  An article in GQ now officially confirms that the Dapper Dan x Gucci collaboration store will indeed debut on Lenox as we previously reported. The 4,700 square-foot space includes a lower floor renovated in the way of a fashionable Victorian era townhouse where customers will be able to work out bespoke designs with Dapper Dan using Gucci fabrics and materials. Production facilities are located on the top floors and appointments start in January.  With that said, we expect a lot of celebrities showing up in Mount Morris Park at the corner of Lenox and 122nd Street in the near future.  More details can be found in our past post: LINK

BEST NEW ITALIAN RESTAURANT 2017: UNCLE TONY'S



Harlem Bespoke:  The most notable new Italian spot to open uptown this year is the casual takeout pizzeria next door to Fumo on Amsterdam at 139th Street which was our top pick from last year.  Uncle Tony's is the sister slice joint that serves fresh baked pizzas with artisanal combinations such as mozzarella pesto, creamy vodka sauce, mushroom with truffle oil or classic pepperoni.  We especially like the thin crust offerings but thick crust lovers will also appreciate some of the other options on the menu.  Harlem already has a lot of great wood or brick oven alternatives but this little pie shop is one of at the first to come up with individual artisanal slices for those on the go.  More on Uncle Tony's can be found in our past post: LINK

DWELL: 19 SYLVAN TERRACE IN CONTRACT

Harlem Bespoke:  Number 19 Sylvan Terrace arrived on the market in September for the asking of $1.575 million and now has a contract out.  As previously mentioned, the 2-unit landmark townhouse is on one of the most charming landmark cobblestone blocks in the city and faces the Morris-Jumel Mansion on the east side of street.  The extraordinary address is also a couple of blocks away from the train station on St. Nicholas Avenue which makes for a convenient commute.  More photos and full details can be found on the broker site: LINK
