MAISON HARLEM Restaurant BISTRO to open in Harlem

Have you heard? A new restaurant is almost ready to open in Harlem on 127th Street and St. Nicholas Avenue by two “food and wine loving French New Yorkers,” Chef Romain Bonnans and host Samuel Thiam.  The MAISON HARLEM Restaurant BISTRO needs just a little more help to finish the space, so they’ve started a Kickstarter page to help them collect some money before opening in September 2012. The goal is to reach $20,000 and you can participate by donating from as little as $5, and up to $2500 if you’ve got it like that.

Here’s the message and video from Romain and Sami:

“We need a great counter top and bar stools, wood floors and slick kitchen appliances, beautiful pendant lamps, and cool tiles for the bathroom floors . We are funding this project ourselves , but would like to reach out to the community for a little more help. We are offering AWESOME and generous incentives in the hopes that we will be able to personally meet (and thank!) everyone who donates, and to begin fostering a great relationship with all of you.”

It’s nice to see a taste of Paris, France in Harlem!
