☞ EAT: Outdoor Dining Debuts at Lido

Harlem's newest Italian restaurant on the lower FDB corridor appears to be expanding in many ways these days. Lido on FDB/8th  had started to place planters alongside decorative cast iron partitions out front at the corner of West 117th Street in the past week and now it appears that the tables have finally arrived.  The lower photo was uploaded on the restaurant's Facebook site yesterday and we have been informed that Lido will be open on Mondays.

Other notables for the better Harlem eatery include $14 prix fix lunch with free wifi and complimentary iced coffee or tea. There is also the Brunch Saturdays and Sundays with $10 bottomless mimosas along with Happy Hour from 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM every day which all provide a few great incentives to visit often.


  1. Hats off to Lido. THIS is what proper service and food is all about. Chocolat and their weird brunch menu could learn a few things. Gave it a try the other day and they were out of most of the stuff on the menu, despite the place being empty. In the hour we were there, they lost three groups of customers because of their limited menu. Sad part is, the food we did order was actually really, really good.

    What's happening with that Honey Burger place? It has been in the same state for months now.

  2. I agree with Chris, great place, delicious food and friendly service!
