☞ EAT: La Fonda Replaces Jimmy's Classic Diner

It looks like the fire that closed East Harlem's Jimmy's Classic Diner last year finally did it in for the favorite new neighborhood establishment. This week, signs went up on the exterior touting Mexican Restaurant La Fonda on the stainless steel exterior of the corner store at East 103rd Street. The big question for the new space is: will it do well in a part of town that already has an ample amount of cheap Mexican eats? The white tile and stainless steel interior seems intact currently, so maybe they will be trying a modern spin on an ethnic favorite. Stay tuned. La Fonda is at 1634 Lexington Avenue and the closest subway is the 6 train at 103rd Street. Photos by Ulysses
