The Norry at Kampuchea, Betel, and More Coming Soon

New, 3 comments

1) Lower East Side: Above, some new shots of the space Kampuchea, the popular LES Cambodian restaurant, will be expanding into early next year. It will be called The Norry at Kampuchea. [PLYWOOD]

2) West Village: Martin Brudnizki, the designer behind Le Caprice, the schmancy and "exclusive" London import that opened in Midtown last month, has a new project up his sleeves. He's designing Betel, a restaurant opening on Grove between Bleecker and 7th in the old Wild Ginger space. By the looks of their construction blog, it's going to be a major project, one whose plans must be approved again and again by the Landmarks Committee because of its location. The chef/owner is Adam Woodfield. [PLYWOOD]

3) Chelsea: A reader has some new pics of the former Ate Ave spot, adding this commentary: "Dearly departed Manray begat nobody's favorite Ate Ave, replacing that gorgeous Paris-inspired entrance with that angular eyesore. Can't tell what's going in but every trace of Ate Ave is being appropriately pulled out. First to go, that hideous entrance.." [PLYWOOD]

4) Prospect Heights: The Brooklyn Paper reports that Jesse Levitt, a bar owner and apparent mystic, is opening a new bar on Washington Ave. in Prospect Heights even though his tarot card reading told him not to. However, Minor Arcana, called Flying Monkey before the reading, will have a freak show/occult angle in its decor. It opens on Friday. [PLYWOOD]

5) Ditmas Park: Brownstoner notes that progress is being made on an adjoining wine bar and market on Cortelyou Road. It is owned by the team behind neighborhood fave Mimi's Hummus. [PLYWOOD]

6) Harlem: Uptown Flavor reports that Harlem neighborhood spot music and sushi spot, The Den, will open in a new location, on Lenox between 119th and 120th, next spring.

7) Fort Greene: A press release announces that a new wine bar called Mauzac will be taking over a portion of the space currently occupied by Carol's Daughter, a Fort Greene store that has now expanded to other neighborhoods. It sits at 136 DeKalb at Elliott Place. [PLYWOOD]

8) Flatiron: Grub Street hears that two restaurants are going into the old Limelight space, the club that is will be reopened as a retail center called Limelight Marketplace. One of the restaurants is said to be coming from a well known Hamptons restaurateur (please, please, please Jean-Luc Kleefield). [PRE-PLYWOOD]
