1) Spitzer's Corner: The gastropub that was to be Sam Talbot's post-Top Chef kitchen debut has opened. After a recent trip to the space, we can testify that the beer list is vast and varied. They should be serving a full menu in about a week; currently, a few raw bar options like shrimp cocktail and oysters are available. 101 Rivington St at Ludlow St; (212) 228-0027 [Eater Staff]

2) Abraco: San Francisco chef Jamie McCormick, who made his name with cafes like Blue Bottle kiosk and Piccino, has moved to our fair city. We were alerted to this news by Tablehopper, who tells us that McCormick has opened a cafe/coffee bar called Abraco serving breakfasty items such as frittatas, house-made yogurt, and fresh-squeezed juices. Pastry chef Elizabeth Quijada, previously of vegan bakery Babycakes, is handling the sweets for the place, offering treats like olive-oil cake and deep-fried ricotta fritters. At night, a tapas menu will be served. 86 E 7th St at First Ave; phone number unavailable [TableHopper]

3) Flurt: Another outpost of this frozen treats purveyor is plywood-free. A tipster writes: "Flurt in BPC is now open." Frozen yogurt stands: they seem like such a good idea in August, but come wintertime... South End Ave nr Rector Pl; phone number unknown [Eater Inbox]
