Parsons School of Design alumnus with a BFA in fashion, who has worked in the menswear industry for several years. Past lives have been in the East Village and Lower East Side of Manhattan; more recently transplanted to Harlem. Currently living in a 1907 "French flat," an Edwardian era middle-class apartment.
The former Ginger restaurant space at the 1400 Fifth Avenue reportedly will have a new tapas restaurant arriving soon and a reader submitted the second photo that just appeared out front of the commercial space. Apparently the establishment planned for this corner of West 116th Street has been named Bleu Violin and will now be mainly a lounge. This is a big space with about 3,000 square foot altogether so the spot will have to keep pretty busy during the week to be successful. A website has been established for the new South Harlem venture but not much information can be found on the establishment at this point in time: LINK
