So I am SO insanely excited that a new cafe/store is opening up around the corner from our apartment sometime (hopefully) this month.
Indian Road Cafe
Just to give you an idea, while our neighborhood is ideal in having wide streets, lush green parks, a beutiful view of Harlem River...there's not much in the way of stores. One little deli down the street and that's it. Slim pickings.
When we were first looking for apartments in our neighborhood last year we were so excited to see signs up for a new cafe right across from the park! Yay! But the poor owners of the cafe have been through fun NYC policies and legal drama...so it's taken longer than expected. But hurray!! It's actually happening!
So Amanda will finally have her neighborhood cafe to sit and drink coffee...or a glass of wine...and relax. AND!!! There's a fireplace! How cool is that?!?! AND!!! (My sister's going to get a kick out of this..) While I've never seen the show, apparently the guys opening the store were part of the prodction of some of The Sopranos episodes and some of the tables and chairs are from the set of the Nuovo Vesuvio restaurant in the show. Hmmmm...now I'm going to have to watch the show :)
