The Plywood Report: Apiary, Antibes, d.b.a, Production Lounge, and More!

New, 1 comment

1) East Village: Someone associated with the restaurant informs us about a cattle call at the East Village's soon-to-open Apiary: "Chef Neil Manacle, formerly of Bar Americain, will open an exciting new restaurant 'Apiary' on June 16th. Apiary will be a high end, East Village restaurant with fabulous food and extraordinary wine list. We will be holding our first job fair on Thursday, May 29th from 11am to 2pm and Friday, May 30th from 10am to 1pm...Please join us at 60 3rd avenue." [PLYWOOD]

2) Williamsburg: Our roving photog got an updated shot of the new place going in at Driggs and North 7th. Now the windows say "Fiambreria" and "Queseria". The painter says they're two months from opening. [PLYWOOD]

3) Midtown: Midtown Lunch reports on some plywood on 46th: "The space formerly occupied by Kati Roll on 46th btw. 6+7th (before they moved to 39th St.) is finally getting a tenant. A 'kitchen man' showed up yesterday, and it would appear as if the place is being gutted. They were pretty hush hush about what was moving in, except to say it was a 'reputable restaurant' with 'American fare' switching spots from their current location in Midtown." [PLYWOOD]

4) Williamsburg: We've got a shot of the space that is to be d.b.a., the new Brooklyn outpost of the East Village beer bar. [PLYWOOD]

5) Greenpoint: Above we have some interior and exterior shots of Production Lounge a movie-themed bar with flat screens mounted on the walls and directors chairs at the bar. Apparently, they're trying to attract the P.A. crowd that works at the nearby studios. [PLYWOOD]

6) Greenpoint: There's a new wine shop opening on Franklin Street in Greenpoint across from Brooklyn Label. The owner tells us it opens in a week. A passer-by revealed that the owner is still mulling a name. [PLYWOOD]

7) East Village: And finally, we have an email from the people representing Antibes on 7th and 1st: "Antibes proudly functions as a gallery for frequently changing art exhibitions as an act of support to local and international artists. Elnadiv co-founded the Café-Café chain in Tel-Aviv, Israel and Eyal owned an upscale delicatessen in Tel-Aviv before moving to New York with the concept of Antibes in mind...Antibes will be having a grand opening on June 1st 2008."
