EAT: EVERYTHING CROISSANT AT DEAR MAMA


Harlem Bespoke:  Dear Mama at 611 West 129th Street is only open 9:00AM to 4:00PM  from Monday through Friday but those in the area should check out the everything croissant that is on the daily menu.  This was actually part of the unique smoked salmon sandwich special which had lots of dill, a smear of cream cheese and a side of pickled carrots.  Bagels are usually the order of the day for this type of breakfast fare but this savory update provides a satisfying alternative with a little bit of French flare.  More on Dear Mama in Manhattanville can be found in our past post: LINK

DWELL: 387 MANHATTAN AVENUE TOWNHOUSE


Harlem Bespoke: Number 387 Manhattan Avenue by 116th street has just arrived on the market for $3.295 million.  We especially like the single-family layout at a location that is next to the lower FDB commercial corridor and Morningside Park.  There appears to be a modern boutique hotel feel to interior space although the gut renovation does not have any original details within.  Subway stops are also only a block away on 116th and FDB which is also ideal.  More photos and contact information can be found on Streeteasy: LINK

SHOP: 285 ST. NICHOLAS STILL VACANT

Harlem Bespoke: The storefront at 285 St. Nicholas Avenue is still vacant and has been so for about 4 years. This location is right by the express subway station and is a very visible corner space so what is the major issue?  Higher commercial rents have kept many shops empty further downtown and this might just be a similar situation.  A cafe was reportedly moving into the space back in 2015 but that business deal apparently fell through: LINK
