New, 2 comments

1) East Village: Blah Blog Blah finds some plywood for a coffee shop called Table 12 near Kool Blue on 12th and A. “So we will have another coffee shop to compete with OST, which seems the right way to go considering the other 3 coffee shops in this part of town have closed, and OST is always packed.” [PLYWOOD]

2) Williamsburg: Intrepid photog Will Femia shares some pics of a new Vietnamese joint called Banh Mi on Bedford Avenue near N. 7th. We'll see if it conjures the same reaction of An Choi. [PLYWOOD]

3) Greenwich Village: Update: A tipster sends this pic of plywood vet Ramen Setagaya’s somewhat stalled second location over on University next to Grey Dog Coffee. [PLYWOOD]

4) Midtown: A tipster sends photos of a new eatery called Dafni Greek Taverna at 325 W. 42nd Street. [PLYWOOD]

5) Ditmas Park: Grub Street finds a bit more info on The Purple Yam, the new eatery from the folks behind recently shuttered Cendrillion. Here’s more deets from the restaurant website: “The concept of the new Purple Yam is to re-create a kitchen-centered home harking back to the Asian values of hospitality and generosity. Many of you have asked us what the new menu would look like. To tell you the truth, we still do not know. We will keep old favorites like lechon kawali, adobo, kare kare. But Romy and I are at the stage of our lives where we will just do the food that we love, that we find delicious and comforting.” The restaurant is set to open by April at 1314 Courtelyou Road in Ditmas Park.

6) Greenwich Village: An Eater correspondent sends this plywood shot of a new eatery called Lizzie's at W. 8th Street and Macdougal. [PLYWOOD]

7) Williamsburg: Another tipster shares the following pic and info on this piece of plywood at N. 8th Street and Wythe: “This has been behind plywood for literally YEARS. Friday night the plywood was down and the windows were uncovered revealing a big bar in the center of the space, industrial-style light fixtures, a big bottle rack behind the bar. Construction-wise this place looked pretty close to being able to take customers. Sadly, when I came back on Saturday afternoon to shoot through the window the paper had gone up." [PLYWOOD]
