Barawine at 120th and Lenox has only been open about a week but apparently the outdoor cafe license is all in place for the boutique business. This eatery located in the Mount Morris Park Histroric District appears to have had instant success since it opened and a Bespoke reader snapped the above photo last night of locals enjoying an early evening meal. The rain will only last for today, so make sure to support all of Harlem's cafes such as Barawine when the weather gets better in the week.
