With the added student bonus of free Wi-Fi to compliment delicious food, Haakon’s Hall may just become Max Caffé’s biggest competition by day, and Campo’s by night.

Citarella (on 125th Street near Amsterdam), which opened its market in Harlem in 2005, failed to do renovations that were part of a 2001 sale contract, the city said.
The city is evicting Citarella, the upscale fish and food retailer, from its Harlem market and reclaiming the 125th Street-area properties because Citarella failed to complete renovations that were part of a 2001 sale contract.
The eviction notice, which comes after a multiyear legal battle between Citarella and the city, became final last week under a ruling in State Supreme Court by Justice Karen S. Smith.

Cops are searching for the thief who shot a man in Harlem and snatched a gold chain and a medallion from around his neck, police said.
The thug, in his 20s, confronted the 24-year- old man at West 125th Street and Amsterdam Avenue on Dec. 30, cops said.
The victim tried to escape, but the suspect shot him once and grabbed the chain and medallion, bearing the words “The Network,” sources said.
The injured man was listed in stable condition at St. Luke’s Hospital.
