The Plywood Report: Rino Ceronte, Sweet Melissa, Energy Kitchen, and More

1) Greenwich Village: Minetta Tavern is getting some new neighbors. The space opening next store to McNally's baby on MacDougal is called Rino Ceronte and, according to its signage, will serve steak, shrimp, chicken, and portobello sandwiches. [PLYWOOD]

2) Brooklyn Heights: Brooklyn Heights Blog reports that Melissa Murphy of the Sweet Melissa group of patisseries may open up shop in the old Busy Chef and Blue Pig spaces, vacated last year when owner Dan Kaufman was arrested for stealing money from customers. Murphy hopes to open by early summer. [PLYWOOD]

3) East Village: EV Grieve notes that the old Col Legno space at 231 East 9th St. is going to reopen as some kind of robataya-style restaurant. [PLYWOOD]

4) East Village: Just down the street, we grabbed a shot of the heavily plywooded space that was once Panya and Around the Clock Diner. Significant work is being done beyond the plywood and the work permits call for some major structural changes. When the eatery and bakery first closed, the reopening was projected for spring, but we'll put our money on summer. [PLYWOOD]

5) Williamsburg: The space next to Bliss on Bedford between North 6th and 7th Streets, formerly a glasses store, has a work permit in the window promising a restaurant. Stay tuned for more. [PLYWOOD]

6) Flatiron: Our roving photographer notices a new Energy Kitchen is opening up right across from the recently shuttered Comfort Diner on 23rd St. [PLYWOOD]
