New, 1 comment

1) East Village: A most recent look at the delayed Butcher Bay space on East 5th between A and B reveals it may not be as far off as we had thought. The dumpsters are still around, but the black plastic shroud has been removed. It looks like we're in the final stretch. [PLYWOOD]

2) West Village: A tipster brings an update on Da Andrea: "I walked by Da Andrea's new location on 13th bet. 5th & 6th...Their website says they will be open in February -- peeking in the window it looks like they've still got a decent amount of work to do. Their old spot on Hudson Street was one of my favorite restaurants, and I was shocked when they closed their doors, especially since they were pretty much full 7 nights a week. Who knows what their landlord was thinking." [PLYWOOD]

3) Midtown East— Per a press release from new gentlemen's club Sapphire, their steakhouse, headed up by former Robert's chef Jayson Margulies, will open in a month. [PLYWOOD]

4) East Village: EV Grieve stops by the old Waikiki Wally's space to take a look at the new tenant, Marfa. By the drinks specials and menu in the window, it looks like she's about ready to open. The full menu is reportedly debuting on Feb. 12. [POST-PLYWOOD]

5) East Village: EV Grieve also notices Tonda Pizzeria the new spot opening up in the old E.U. space on East 4th between A & B has new signage (above). [PLYWOOD]

6) Hell's Kitchen: A plywood update from the tipline: "I read in the times two weeks ago that Agua Dulce is opening on 53rd and Ninth avenue, with the old chef from some private Island or something. There' s plywood and some sidewalk construction going on out front, and the space inside looks huge." A little more info on the project, per Flo Fab. [PLYWOOD]

7) Gramercy: A tipster reports on the new pizza joint, and plywood vet, going into the Push Cafe space: "The exterior renovation of Pizza Pub, which is replacing Push, on 3rd Ave., betw. 22nd & 23rd Sts., has been completed. There were a couple of workers inside, but from what I could judge looking through the window, the interior appears pretty much done, including tables and chairs in place." For more plywood info, Grub Street has some menu details. [PLYWOOD]
