Angel of Harlem
Anahi Angelone, owner of Corner Social, has opened another spot in Harlem named Angel. The bar and restaurant offers Latin American and Caribbean cuisine. Executive chef Banks White helms the kitchen at both Angel and Corner Social.
The preview menu features dishes such as White Grape and Almond Gazpacho with sofrito, crispy capers, and Spanish olives; and Oysters on the Half Shell with chipotle mango cocktail sauce and black pepper mignonette.
Besides craft beers on draft and a wine list, Angel also offers cocktails such as its signature What Happens in Harlem … made with Hennessy, sorrel, simple syrup, and club soda with muddled mint and lime.

Bistro 914, in the Dunwoodie section of Yonkers, is a project of lifelong native Gene Ciriello and Dennis Gladwell. The decoration will showcase the history of Yonkers.
Chef Barret Beyer, who appeared on the TV series “Hell’s Kitchen” (season 11) is creating the small plates on the menu.
Dishes include Vodka Flamed Shrimp Bruschetta, Espresso Rubbed Hanger Steak, and Bistro Frites (tossed with bacon and Parmesan cheese and drizzled with truffle oil with a side of sriracha salt).
Cocktails, crafted by Ciriello, round out the menu. Bistro 914 will be open by the end of July.
