Walking by La Perle Noire Cafe at 420 Lenox last week and this past weekend, we noticed that the Central Harlem eatery has been closed for a few days. This small cafe at the corner of 131st Street is also a bakery which has some outdoor seating and added activity to the block. Does anyone know what is happening with this business?
