☞ EAT: Manhattanville Brick Oven Pizza Eatery



The restaurant that took over the defunct 125 Stop restaurant (at 3143 Broadway) on the border of Manhattanville and Morningside Heights is coming along these days. The top photo shows the old lounge getting some truly gaudy yellow marble paneling removed and we noticed in recent weeks that the facade now has some rustic wood details added on. This section of West Harlem, just a couple of blocks south from the 125th Street elevated train station, is probably not going to sell on the glamour angle (the old paneled doors were in a bright brass finish) so rustic, old New York might be the better way to go. The lower photo shows the brick oven that was installed a couple of weeks back. Recently, the light fixtures and bar have been installed and furniture was seen being loaded into the space. At this rate, an early August opening should be at hand. Stay tuned. All photos by Ulysses

    I've always found this area to be quite charming.Hopefully it will be worth the long walk for me.
