We received tips that the old South Beach cafe space just below 124th and Lenox will have a new better burger establishment arriving but were not convinced until we saw a public noticed up on the facade this week. A couple of workers were out in front of 277 Lenox Avenue this morning and posted announcements have it that Harlem Shake will be arriving in the Mount Morris Park Historic District neighborhood. They apparently will be serving beer or wine based on the request and we expect this to be sort of a better Shake Shack for the neighborhood. Timing is good for this venture since Whole Foods will be opening right across the street in the future. Click on lower image to enlarge
