Parsons School of Design alumnus with a BFA in fashion, who has worked in the menswear industry for several years. Past lives have been in the East Village and Lower East Side of Manhattan; more recently transplanted to Harlem. Currently living in a 1907 "French flat," an Edwardian era middle-class apartment.
The New York Times walks over to the east side of Harlem and checks out the Mexican flavors of Agua Fresca over at 207 East 117th Street at Third Avenue. Resident chef Adrian Leon hails from Mexico City but comes up with new ways of combining traditional flavors that are not all that common in many of the uptown establishments. Tacos are accented with braised beef tongue alongside grilled onions or shrimp and pineapple which tend to be combination not found on the more mainstream 116th Street Mexican corridor. Mexican beers, South American wines and the namesake agua fresca are also served daily and makes this newish eatery one to look out for on the east side.
