Vinateria at FDB/8th Avenue and 119th Street is seeing more action these days since a great painted sign has now been placed at the corner shop's facade. News of this new eatery arrived about a year ago but work did not start at the South Harlem space until this past September. We noticed a few interesting light fixtures installed within the interior and expect a January opening if this rate of progress continues. The signage of an establishment really set the tone of the new business and this one looks very promising from what we can see so far.
