The Plywood Report: Kafana, Last Licks, Alma Thai, Yoganic, and More!

New, 4 comments

1) East Village: A new Serbian spot, Kafana, is opening up on Avenue C between 8th and 9th Streets. Businesses seem to rotate out of that stretch fairly frequently but maybe it has a chance due to the novelty of the cuisine in the nabe. The owner says it will open in 10 days. [PLYWOOD]

2) Upper East Side: A reader and/or owner sends in the following tip: "Set for a 'soft opening' next week is Last Licks...A new ice cream store and sports memorabilia spot on 93rd and 2nd. A party room, a 'dugout' for interactive gaming and of course ice cream..Pending health department approval..." [PLYWOOD]

3) Harlem: Uptown Flavor has an enthusiastic update on the progress at Alma Thai on 11th Ave: "The place looks slamming! They were painting the doors black and gold when I arrived. The lions had some paint work done on them as well. I was able to look past the paper covering parts of the windows and the place looks flipping awesome! Spacious and swanky! I asked the guys who were around and they told me they were opening next week." [PLYWOOD]

4) Tribeca: A tipster writes in to report a Le Pain Quotidien is going in at the corner of Warren Street and West Broadway. Finally some competition for what must be the thriving lunch spot, YourAsian. [PLYWOOD]

5) Financial District: TechnoLawyer writes in to tell us about some promising developments in the foodie wasteland that is FiDi: "It looks like Fresco on Pearl Street in Hanover Square will soon open. FiDi needs at least another 10 quality lunch places so it will do very well no doubt." [PLYWOOD]

6) Midtown East: And it wouldn't be a plywood repot in spring without some Fro-Yo news. The people at GraceNotesNYC email us to let us know that Yoganic is opening next week on Third between 49th and 50th. They'll be giving away free cups of frozen yogurt with one topping all day on May 22nd. [PLYWOOD]
