The NY Post reports that Harlem’s independent foodie culture continues to thrive, with two breakfast spots opening early next year:
BO’s Bagels, an artisanal homemade bagel stand that sells its goods at local farmers’ markets, is opening its first retail store at 235 W. 116th St.
The 1,500-square-foot space will have 15 seats — from co-founders Andrew Martinez and Ashley Dikos.
Mark Tergesen and Joe Italiaander of ABS Partners Real Estate represented the tenant, while Josh Singer of The Heller Organization represented the landlord, 133 Equities, LLC.
Harlem Coffee Company is also opening its first retail location at 151 Lenox Ave. early next year.
Founder Mark Thompson leased a 1,000-square-foot ground-floor store.
The flagship location, situated between West 117th and 118th streets, will serve the brand’s premium house blend coffee along with teas, juices, sandwiches and pastries in a “speakeasy lounge-like environment.”
The plan is to roll out other locations throughout Harlem in 2018, a spokesperson said. Tergesen represented the landlord, 151 Lenox, LLC.
