☞ EAT: Chef Putnam Leaves Lido

The second Italian restaurant to arrive at the corner of 117th Street and FDB/8th Avenue has done well with Stephen Putnam at the helm of the kitchen but we have now been informed that the Executive chef has left the South Harlem restaurant and plans to open a new eatery in the neighborhood.  Lido has thrived where a former Italian restaurant at the same location has failed so the talents of chef Putnam will be surely put to use in the future venture.  The Harlem resident will be one to look out for in the upcoming months so stay tuned.


  1. Best of luck to Chef Putnam and Lido, this is one of my favorite restaurants in the neighborhood. I will certainly visit Chef Putnam wherever he lands

  2. I love the double win. We get another good restaurant and Lido gets a new menu. Plus ca change!
