The old Orbit cafe space at 116th at 1st Avenue shut down a few years back and it now seem like a new eatery is ready to open soon on that particular corner. Bespoke readers have been sending in tips that new signage is up at the renovated storefront in East Harlem and Prime One 16 apparently is ready to open. With that said, we still can not tell if this will be a takeout place or a fancier establishment based on the look of it. Does anyone have any tips out there about Prim One 16?
