MIST is Harlem’s living room for the culture of the African and Latino Diaspora
My Image Studios LLC is the owner and operator of MIST Harlem, which includes Harvist Restaurant. We are a fair trade social venture planned, programmed and built to share the authentic and diverse cultures of the African and Latino diaspora. Though culturally specific, the stories – whether told through food, film, dance, spoken word or music – are about universal themes that bind us all together.
By fair trade we mean that we are fully engaged in the ethical exchange of goods and services among our neighbors both locally and globally. Fair trade necessarily includes our procurement processes for items including chocolates, coffees, and teas as well as the procurement of entertainment talent with whom we share our revenues. MIST Harlem is an environmentally-friendly green business. We are located on the first floor of the Kalahari, Harlem’s first LEED Gold building. In designing and building MIST Harlem we have been careful to select environmentally sustainable materials which minimize consumption of resources, improve air quality, reduce energy consumption, preserve resources for future generations yet provide an inviting space, which we affectionately call, “Harlem’s Living Room”. We are working hard to reduce our waste stream thru recycling and working with local food banks.
