One of Harlem's favorite spots for authentic Sicilian cuisine, Ristorante Settepani, has been guided by co-founder Leah Abraham since 2000. The Harlem Italian Restaurant boasts a rich selection of Mediterranean flavors, with dishes ranging from the simply sumptuous Calamari Fritti to the savory Agnello alla griglia con salsa di peperoni e mandorle. Leah Abraham's multicultural upbringing in Ethiopia, Kenya, Lebanon, and the former British colony of Aden has been a strong influence upon the flavorful dishes of Ristorante Settepani.
Unique entrepreneurial vision and a modern approach to the service industry led Leah Abraham, alongside her husband, to develop and launch Settepani Bakery in Westchester and Ristorante Settepani, in Harlem.
Beyond the culinary industry, Harlem's revitalization movements owe much to Leah Abraham, who has devoted her life to campaigning for growth and development in the wonderfully historical area. After a decade in Harlem, Leah takes pride in being a part of the thriving community and a witness to its undeniable growth.
