Uptown links: Bushwick pizza phenom Roberta's is coming to Morningside Heights, and more

• Roberta's, the pizzeria that arguably put Bushwick on the food map, is opening its first standalone Manhattan location at 2913 Broadway between W 113th and W 114th Streets; the target is this summer. Sapp's, a Japanese spot with already one location in Long Island City, is debuting one block south. Both are a stone's throw from Columbia's main campus. [Columbia Facilities and Operations]

• A new coffee shop called I Like It Black at 409 W 125th Street near Morningside Avenue is now in soft open mode. The java joint is from the Make My Cake team, also opening its third bakery right next door. [Eater NY]

• When live performances resume in New York City on April 2 (with up to 100 people permitted indoors), some of the first uptown venues to feature programming will include the Apollo Theater and Harlem Stage. [NY Times]

• Atim Annette Oton's corner space on Frederick Douglass Boulevard and W 134th Street is now primarily an art gallery with a focus on African American, African and Caribbean artists. The first exhibition is planned for mid-April. [NY1]

• Take a peek inside CNN anchor Don Lemon's former Harlem condo, which just sold for $1.75 million. [OK!]
