The Winery and Jado Sushi
The Winery opened in South Harlem before lower FDB had really transformed and a few years later Jado Sushi opened up nearby. Both have a great following locally and provide an aesthetic that was missing uptown.
Il Caffe Latte Lenox and Il Caffe Latte 145th Street
One of the first cafes in the Mount Morris Park Historic District on Lenox Avenue eventually helped open up a second branch in Hamilton Heights at 145th Street last year.
Harlem Public and At The Wallace
Lenox Coffee and Double Dutch Espresso
Lenox Coffee debuted under 3 years ago by 129th Street and has recently helped opened Double Dutch Espresso on lower FDB.
Maison Harlem and BTL Wines
There was absolutely nothing at the corner of 127th on St. Nicholas a couple of years ago but Maison Harlem has become the go to spot uptown and has recently opened BTL Wines across the street.
