NEW HARLEM EATERY NUMBER 8: 67 ORANGE STREET
67 ORANGE STREET, 2082 FDB/8TH AVENUE BY 113TH STREET
By 2008, a few more better establishments started to open and 67 Orange Street has stuck around since then because of great drinks and gastropub quality food. The speakeasy was one of the first establishments uptown to catch on to the early century sensibilities sweeping the New York dining scene and hid a decorative interior behind a nondescript storefront. Tea infused cocktails, free spiced popcorn or menu items like red velvet chicken and waffles soon became a local favorite that keeps guests coming back to the tiny speakeasy. A sister coffee shop called Society that was just up the block did not last so long but these two establishments set the pace for a new 8th Avenue.
