Parsons School of Design alumnus with a BFA in fashion, who has worked in the menswear industry for several years. Past lives have been in the East Village and Lower East Side of Manhattan; more recently transplanted to Harlem. Currently living in a 1907 "French flat," an Edwardian era middle-class apartment.
A Bespoke reader was invited in to Cantina by the chef of the new eatery and was able to get some more details on the South Harlem newcomer. First of all, we had only seen exterior views of the restaurant on ACP/7th Avenue and West 112th Street but now interior images have been revealed. There is a difficult balance between casual, being current with dining trends and having cool aesthetics which the owners of the establishment seems to have since we find both exterior and interior quite agreeable. An opening night date is scheduled for Wednesday this week if all goes to plan so everyone should mark their calendar and support this local business.
