An East Harlem boutique restaurant famous for its focus on poultry is moving around the corner from its current location, and a Spanish tapas spot is taking over its old space.
Mountain Bird, the cozy French gem run by husband-and-wife team Keiko and Kenichi Tajima, is relocating to a sunny corner space at 2162 Second Avenue and East 111th Street. The move is scheduled for next Tuesday, April 9, according to an announcement on Instagram. The new storefront was most recently the East Harlem outpost of burger joint Harlem Shake.
Gaudir, a tapas restaurant helmed by chef Cedric Durand, is settling into the old Mountain Bird space at 251 East 110th Street between Second and Third Avenues. The year-and-a-half-old venture from caterer Tastings NYC will go from being a Monday-only pop-up to a permanent destination. Expect plenty of paella, jamon, and sangria.
