The restaurant opening within the Kalahari at 40 West 116th Street will be called Harvist according to a recent press release. Harvistwill be part of the $21 million, 20,000 square foot cultural space at My Image Studios (MIST) and will be headed up by Executive Chef Cassandra Quinlan-Ashford. Folks should expect regional southern and Latino inspired dishes such as Anson Mills organic grits with grilled head-on prawns when the 130 indoor seat restaurant opens for dinner service sometimes in September. Lunch and brunch will soon follow and locals on West 116th Street should look out for the much needed additional outdoor seating that will also arrive at this corner of South Harlem.
