1) Chelsea: Jeremiah’s Vanishing NY shares this piece of plywood: “To anyone who hoped the "Closed for Renovations" signs on Chelsea's Food Bar meant the place would reopen, brace yourselves. It's going to be a Chipotle.” [PLYWOOD]

2) Midtown: A PR tipster informs us that a new "caviar lounge" will be opening at the 58th Street entrance at the Four Seasons called Calvisius Italian Caviar Lounge. Here's some menu info: "The menu features small plates which include CALVISIUS caviar served with quail eggs, blinis or toasts, in addition to an exceptional smoked white sturgeon. To complement these dishes, the lounge will offer selection of fine French Champagne, Italian sparkling wine, and superior vodkas." The opening is scheduled for the week of March 23rd. [PLYWOOD]

3) Midtown East: Update: Flickr Photog mrgeneko snags this plywood snap of soon-to-open Melt Gelato, mentioned previously. [PLYWOOD]

4) Williamsburg: Grub Street takes some construction shots of the upcoming Cap I Pota, a Spanish spot the owners of Mercat are opening in a Williamsburg warehouse: "...an open kitchen will serve homemade charcuterie and family-style dishes inspired by the Girona region to a 74-seat dining room. After that, he wants to open a twenty-seat restaurant in the West Village that will focus on fine Spanish cuisine." [PLYWOOD]

5) Ft. Greene: NYTimes blog The Local reports that shuttered Vegan eatery Urban Spring will be replaced by new Vegan/veggie eatery, Breathe Inn Cafe. They write: "So on the ashes of Urban Spring, the vegan eatery at 147 185 DeKalb Avenue that served its last smoothie on Feb. 28, Mr. Aitcheson and his wife, Carmella Aitcheson, will open the Breathe Inn Café, which will offer organic juices, shakes, sandwiches and salads. Scheduled to start business at the end of the month, the establishment derives its name from the bed and breakfast that the couple operates in Lainesville, N.Y." [PLYWOOD]
