Vinateria continues to impress since they painted their store signage up at the corner of 119th Street and FDB/8th Avenue. Walking by the yet to be open eatery in the past week, we noticed that new industrial, enameled lamps have been place out front for illumination. This continues the vintage vibe that is adding more character to space each day but the interior still appears to be under wraps. If the exterior is an indication of where things are going then this part of South Harlem should be getting another great new restaurant debuting sometimes in the near future.
