SHOP: BUSINESSES HEAD NORTH FOR OPPORTUNITY
For 2014, there will 7 new notable openings in the upper 130s and the 140s mostly concentrated on the more western locale of Harlem. At The Wallace just opened its bar at Broadway and 149th Street and has been an instant hit. The same can be said for Manhattanville Coffee which arrived earlier in the summer at 142nd and Edgecombe and it now looks like Anchor Wine Bar will be next to open its doors over on Broadway by 143rd Street. Hog's Head Tavern at 142nd and Hamilton Place will surely receive much of our entertainment budget when it opens in the next couple of weeks while Grill On The Hill just 2 blocks south will also be a notable debut in a similar time frame. Finally The Edge cafe at 139th and Edgecombe or La Tarenga's contemporary French-Senaglese offerings just an avenue over will totally complete the restaurant revolution of the more northern reaches of Harlem.
