Work over at Silvana on at 116th Street and FDB/8th Avenue is coming along these days. This restaurant will be opened by the guys who own the French bistro Yatenga on ACP/7th Avenue and the storefront appears to going for the classic wood panel with glass aesthetic. We have not heard much about what Silvana's menu will be like but the owners have a good track record so folks should expect a great restaurant to arrive at this South Harlem location.
