Serafina Harlem is set to open on West 122nd Street and Amsterdam tomorrow night but HB has been able to get an early preview.  Friends and family all dropped by this evening to preview the interior of the newest location in the city which happens to be one of Harlem's many notable openings this spring.  Fabio Granato of Serafina proudly gave us a tour of the space that features the murals of Pato Paez who explained that all of the walls have been stripped down to the original brickwork and then painted to created a more artistic touch.

Serafina is known for their unique wall paintings and the 74-seat  uptown location has several wing motifs which is also symbolic to the restaurant.  Detailing in the floors consisted of bright classic hand painted tiles but everything has a contemporary feel to it.  We especially like the prosciutto legs of ham hanging above the wood burning pizza oven which has a nicely tiled dome shape with the eatery's moniker included.  All of the seating was not set up tonight but diners should expect additional tables outside in the coming weeks.  More reviews will be up later in the week but those who want to get a reservation should check out the official website: www.serafinaharlem.com
