We were able to get a preview of the interior of the new tapas bar called Peque on 145th Street this week and took a few photos of the work in progress.  Many might remember the spot as the old Mountain Bird location between 7th and 8th but the new spanish eatery has made a few major changes.  One side of the interior now has a crafted bar where wine, cocktails, beer and small plates will be served in the future.  Guests can expect some classics such as bocadillo sandwiches, tortilla espanola and other familiar tapas dishes to be on the menu by the time the new business opens in about 2 weeks or so.  The other half of Peque has more formal dining set up and has been painted a rich hue of grey to make things more modern.  More details will eventually go up on the walls and the signage out front will also have the hand painted treatment.   Globe lights, the original black hex tiles, subway tiles and lots of warm wood furnishings update the space with a bit of approachable charm.

Another interesting point to note is that the owner grew up in Harlem and wants to really make a casual establishment where everyone can just drop by for a social drink or a quick bite. Diners can expect dinner hours to kick things off but brunch service will also be available later on in the year. An official public opening set for the week of Labor Day is the plan but a soft opening will probably happen a bit sooner.  Make sure to follow Peque on Facebook for more updates: LINK
