1) East Village: The bahn mi mania continues. Today Baoguette Cafe a spin off of the ever popular Baoguette by Michael Huynh opened up in the old Bamn! space, a quick turnaround given the failed automat shuttered just last month. A happy tipster writes in: "officially open (though only sandwiches) and officially delicious." When they do start serving the full menu they'll have pho, crispy offal congee, grilled lamb belly, chicken wing on fire, soft serve Vietnamese ice cream, and oh so much more.
