☞ EAT: Waiting For Cafe Largo
Another sign of the hardships of the recession is the trio of restaurants that had started to turn around the corner of West 137th Street and Broadway in West Harlem but have been closed since late spring. The downtown lounge-like restaurant, Cafe Largo, the smart looking bakery, Vinegar Hill and the reliable take out Mexican eatery, Tres Pasos, have shuttered in consecutive months for some sort of financial restructuring by the owner (who is the proprietor of all three establishments). We walked by last week, and there are signs up on each, informing customers that the spaces are "closed temporarily." That being said, we will keep a look-out to let folks know when to expect the doors to open again. Nearest subway is the 1 train at 137th Street, City College Station.
