Plywood Report: Planet Thailand (Manhattan), Devin Tavern, Against the Grain, Undisclosed Post-Kiev Project

1) Flatiron: Big news to kick off this week's plywood. A special Eater correspondent emails, "Planet Thailand is close to opening its Manhattan outlet. I was walking down 24th St between 5th and 6th Aves and saw guys finishing off an really elaborate renovation, as you can see in the attached photos (above, via the Eater Photo Pool). A pretty incredible transfomation of the space. The guys working there said it would be a Planet Thailand and would be ready to open in two weeks. Can't wait." (Separately, after a brief Shutter for underage drinking violations, Planet Thailand in Williamsburg is reopen.) [POST-PLYWOOD]

2) Tribeca: Above, a Greenwich Street (between Franklin and Harrison) newcomer called Devin Tavern, from the folks behind Dylan Prime. Though the door still promises "Cuisine of Bangkok" (a holdover from the previous tenant), the Dylan Prime website says the joint will serve "rustic New American." (Its official website is spartan.) Looks to be about two weeks out. [PLYWOOD/POST-PLYWOOD]

3) East Village: "Thought I’d make sure you knew that my fave neighborhood wine bar Grape & Grain is opening a spin-off upscale beer bar (w/ food) called Against the Grain. It’s on 6th btwn b/c, and probably won’t open for another month." [PLYWOOD]

4) East Village: Below, to close us out, check out this reader-submitted (via Flickr) photo of the East Village's shuttered (and picked-over) Kiev, now wrapped in plywood. What's to come in the space? We do not know. But we do know this: that is some impressive plywood.
