Café Largo Comes Back to Harlem, With Two Sisters In Tow

When Harlem’s Café Largo disappeared in 2003, a good restaurant closed in a neighborhood with too few of them.

All three storefronts are joined in the back by a common kitchen, and a fourth adjacent store, Bella Jo Jane’s Sandwich Box, is slated to open in two to three months. Why the long delay? “We closed for an expansion and renovation that took two years longer than we expected,” says co-owner Stacy Schoenfeld-Calcano. Let's hope Largo’s new menu, among other things, will make the wait worthwhile.
