The Plywood Report: Shin Ju, Red Hook Pizza, Silver Spoon, and More!

New, 4 comments

1) Park Slope: A correspondent sends in some pics from a new space replacing Inaka Sushi at 236 7th Ave, between 4th and 5th in Park Slope: "This new sushi place is set to open in two weeks. It's called Shin Ju II, so I think it's safe to bet it's related to the Shin Ju Sushi in Fidi." Gowanus Lounge ran a piece about the space, noting it's called Shinjuku II, named after Shinjuku Station. [PLYWOOD]

2) Fort Greene: The Fro-Yo wars wage on in Brooklyn. Brownstoner spots yet another new and unheard of frozen yogurt shop opening up, this time in Fort Greene, and this time called Silver Spoon. [PLYWOOD]

3) Red Hook: A Red Hook resident notices a new pizza spot going in: "The door was open at the place where the new coal oven pizza place is supposed to open on van brunt (and sullivan?) and there were several guys working. looks like there is much to do there." We've got a preliminary pic and as a bonus, the current state of the 360 Space. [PLYWOOD]

4) Williamsburg/Greenpoint: Above is a recent shot of the dark Five Leaves, Heath Ledger's posthumous project with a Dumont alum at 18 Bedford by McCarren Park. Looks like there's still some work to do. [PLYWOOD]

5) Kensington: From the Kensington blog, the future of the space at the corner of Fort Hamilton Parkway & East 4th Street per a note from the owners: "Soon (August) we will be opening a beautiful healthy cafe with full coffee/tea/juice bar, breakfast and brunch; sit down for delicious meal and your essential groceries all in one. The Oak and The Iris Cafe, here to serve our community." [PLYWOOD]

6) Yonkers: The Westchester County Business Journal is reporting that favorite New Haven pizzeria Frank Pepe's is opening a branch a tad bit closer to NYC: "'This will be our first venture outside our home base of Connecticut,' said Kenneth Berry...the company hopes to build three or four more restaurants in Westchester over the next four to five years."
