Lenox Coffee by Lenox Avenue at 129th Street was closed for most of yesterday and finally opened today to reveal a new design element within the interior. We did not really mind the former dark panel, wood counter but the new one recycles some very antique looking tin ceiling plates and brightens up the space with a pop of white. Apparently the new counter was made since beer and wine will be served at the establishment sometimes in mid January. Lenox Coffee is one of the few establishments uptown that has that early century look and the owners definitely make an effort to make the shop as authentic looking as possible. www.LenoxCoffee.com
